CASE, MAINTENANCE EQUIPMENT

The CASE, MAINTENANCE EQUIPMENT, SMALL ARMS (NSN 8465-00-781-9564; standardized on 19 January 1968) is an olive green shade 106 nylon duck pouch designed to carry the basic maintenance (cleaning) equipment for 5.56mm rifles and carbines. The case is a separate issue item and normally utilized in conjunction with 5.56mm carbines (due to them not having the capacity to carry maintenance equipment like 5.56mm rifles).

The small arms maintenance equipment case was initially assigned the Federal Stock Number 1005-781-9564, with the Federal Supply Class being 1005 (which is for GUNS THROUGH 30MM). The Federal Stock Number was changed, in 1970, to 8465-781-9564, with the Federal Supply Class being 8465 (which is for INDIVIDUAL EQUIPMENT).

Colt Defense LLC Part Number for the case is 110987. Colt Defense also produces a proprietary version bearing Part Number 92153.
