M1961 Ammunition Pouch

  • Specification
  • MIL-P-82106
The basic design of the Marine Corps cotton M1961 ammunition pocket, which accommodated a single 20-round magazine for the M14 rifle, remained constant throughout the Vietnam War, though the pouch and flap were lengthened slightly in late 1964.

The loop on the back of the pouch contained two male press-studs, either one of which could be used to attach it to the M1961 cartridge belt. The lower press-stud was used when the pocket was attached the belt upside-down, thus allowing the magazine to fall straight into the hand when the pouch was opened. A first aid kit or 3-pocket grenade carrier could be hung from the pair of eyelets on the bottom edge of the pouch.
