The dummy cartridge, 40 mm, M922/M922A1 (DODIC B472) linked with M16A2 links, 10 rounds per belt, packed in an M2A1 metal box will be authorized for each MK 19 MOD 3 and for each Tool Set, Organizational Level Maintenance (NSN 5180-01-143-9605) and Tool Set, Direct Support Level Maintenance (NSN 5180-01-143-9604). Dummy cartridges for the tool sets are to be requisitioned from normal Class V (W) supply sources by units concerned after initial issue tool sets are received.

Although inert items are normally on time, initial issue items are only replaced when worn out in service. It is anticipated that approximately 50 percent of the initial issue rounds may require replacement annually.
