    PS and PS3 are brand-new to market last-year. Unless you've bought chain in that time, you probably picked up a PM variety, which is semi-chisel, not full. You could get yellow-label (non-safety) PM chain (.050 gauge) which was fantastic chain for 35-45cc saws but I think that has been disc. by Stihl. :( If you bought for your 192, .043 guage, then green label semi-chisel is all I have ever seen available from Stihl in .043.

    I have used Carlton LP semi-chisel non-safety for years on smaller Stihl and Echo saws. Wood'Pro 30LP at Baileys is rebranded Carlton non-safety LP (same size as Stihl picco 0.050 gauge). Its good stuff. In picco narrow (PMN) 0.043 gauge, Baileys also has the equivalent Wood'Pro 34LP non-safety chain in loops or in rolls.

    Yah, that is a Stihl 16" 0.043 picco narrow kerf bar for use with with 55 drive link narrow kerf picco or low profile chains.

    Baileys WoodlandPro/Carlton 34LP-55 drive link non-safety semi-chisel 16" loops will fit it. Also Oregon 90SG-55 link safety semi loops, Oregon 90-S-55 non-safety semi loops, or Stihl 61PMN-55 safety semi loops will all fit.

    Thank You!

    61PMM3-55 is the most current part #. StihlHead's Stihl part # is also correct, just his part number has been superseded.
