Bag, Barrier, M16A2

Here is an oddity I found on Ebay that I thought would interest the audience. I don’t own a Colt A2 model rifle yet so I am displaying the Colt AR15A4 with it.

Nomenclature: Bag, Barrier, M16A2
NSN: 8465-01-540-1753
Description: A storage and preservation bag used for shipping and long term storage of the M16A2 rifle. It is flexible, reclosable, shaped pouch featuring a serial number viewing window and added tear/puncture resistance. Features a hook and loop reclosable opening. Also provides anti-corrosion protection of rifles.

32 years in the Army and I never heard of these existing.
