    Best I can do to describe it is to post this pic. I got this pair in the Army, lost it, had to buy a new one to turn in before leaving, then found it a while back going through a bunch of stuff. They're the M Frame "1.0" I guess, they have a hole halfway across the top and the frame clips in there and on the sides like other m frames. Looking for the standard issue size, and like I said either a smoke, black polar, or the deployment set are the lenses I'm looking for. I'm selling some x metals to pay some bills but I think I can swing these as a wear pair. Thanks! WTB: Military M Frame Lens - image.jpeg

    So you're aware - those are not "Gen1" or "1st Gen" - they are the first set made for ballistic protection, NSN registered, etc. They're built on a 4th Gen M Frame (called the 'New' M Frame by some) and the addition of the clip allows them to pass MIL impact standards which require the lens not separate from the frame during impact.

    You can remove the clip and use any M Frame lens if you just want a pair of shades.

    The lens shape you've got is the Strike, which is the second largest of the standard 5-lens lineup the M Frame retired with. Heater is the bigger shape, Hybrid is slightly smaller than Strike with cheek scallops, Sweep is smaller yet, and Hybrid S the smallest.

    Awesome, thanks for that info. I guess it makes sense that just because they were the first M Frames I'd seen doesn't make them gen 1! :D

    If you're on the SI site it makes sense, since there's a 2.0 and 3.0 offered right along with the old version.

    The frames follow a general timeline of

    Gen1, Gen2, Pro, 'New', 2.0, 3.0, M2, Alpha
