M193 is the nomenclature for 55gr. FMJ. I assume you are referring to the 62gr. SS109/M885?

Those clips on the shoulder pads were for either carrying the assbag up high, or the sleeping bag using the old "sphagetti strap" harness, or the later PLCE setup(Looks like a sheet of nylon, with two straps).. Doing either requires you find the buttpack adaptor, attach a set of snap hooks, or find the sleepingbag carriers..I've only seen the old canvas stuff turning up.. As to what to carry in the pack, that's dependent on what you are told, or prefer to carry.. A couple MRE's, and a change of socks is a start.. Meplat-

The clips on the back are to attach the top part of the butt pack to. The ones on the front can be used to hook a first aid dressing, flashlight, emergency strobe, or use your imagination. Just remember to put it on your nonfiring side as it will interfere with the buttstock in your shoulder. Good Luck and if you get a chance, pick up the Load Bearing Vest instead. Its alot better.

The D-Rings are for REMFs to attach their snazzy "Ranger Beads". [BD]

iNuhBaDNayburhood- what condition are these suspenders in? are they nylon? is there a date on them? ex: DSA100-[b]70[/b]-C-1619 = [b]1970[/b] do they have- SUSPENDERS, FIELD PACK, COMBAT, M-1967 -on them? are the D-rings, D-shaped, and not rectangular? just above the D-rings, are the horizontal "grenade loops" found on ALICE suspenders missing? the clips on the back should be the same style as the ones that attach them to the belt. for a total of 6 clips. if so, you may have a set of m-1967 suspenders. [b]i will buy them and/or trade you for a nice set of alice suspenders.[/b] ALICE suspenders should not have the clips on the back for the butt pack. let me know.

When I showed my brother he freaked out (He's an LEO), because his Kevlar only has Level III protection, not IIIA, and I'm fairly certain this would also go through IIIA, wouldn't it? Regardless, it's fun watching this stuff chew through old junkyard cars, etc...

Most likely, but don't shoot his vest. He'd be pissed. They're not cheap, and it's not a good idea to wear one that's got holes in it. [:)]
