    Very nice! What goes into the two slots up top of it?

    I think you need some stick grenades to fill it up!

    I think the two slots were for the clips.
    Maybe one day for the grenades.

    Super nice Chris. Great history behind it too. I'm glad it's in such good shape. Thanks for showing. How old were you in 1984 my friend? Did you dig it out with your plastic beach bucket and shovel?

    LOL! Unfortunately, I was chasing something else when I was 14, and it wasn't old military relics. You lived a charmed childhood, I wish that I could have been digging right next to you back then, you have great things to show for you hard work.
