    Hi Guys

    I managed to obtain a very unusual padded pouch for my NVG as it was advertised as a NVG pouch.
    It looks like the M83 pattern equipment but I’ve never seen this piece of kit before.

    I also managed to get hold of a M79 grenade launcher cleaning kit that i haven’t seen before.

    The Night Vision pouch is a rare one, and a good find! I am fairly sure it is for the night vision sight issued for use with the R4, the E4020 miniature combat night sight, a 2nd Generation night vision sight:

    I've got a pouch for the earlier KKV 1st Generation NVD (a copy of the German Zeiss Orion 80)made out of P70 canvas materal that I will have to dig up a picture of and post later.

    Good find on the M79 kit as well! Looks to be made out of the light brown P80 fabric, like the R4 cleaning kits.

    Thanks MRF2 for that info.
    Is that your KKV in the pic?
