    I picked up a pair of SI Ballistic M Frame a couple of years ago and managed to "lose" it in the back of the closet until recently. All the replacement lenses currently for sale are for the M Frame 3.0...

    I'm pretty sure this was military issue M Frame (Version 1.0?) and I'm wondering if current Ballistic M Frame lense and nose piece will fit this?

    Yes. The newer lenses are a little thicker and longer, but should still work. That said, M Frames aren't always happy with certain lenses - frame and lens tolerance is such that you can get a pairing from opposite ends of the spectrum that won't work.

    Thanks for the replies. I have a Oakley Vault store near me but they do not carry any ballistic lenses. Guess I'll have to bite the bullet and order it direct and return it if it doesn't work out.

    You can use retail lenses and take off the clip.
