The different "M" would be your patch/cable length. APC means you have an angled optical connector (needed on PON systems), and SC is the type of Fiber connector. FiOS uses single-mode Simplex Fiber. The wavelengths Verizon uses for FiOS are 1490 and 1550 nm (to ONT) and 1310 nm (return to CO).

 

Lots of options out there to choose from which meet those specifications (like this: https://www.fs.com/products/76115.html?attribute=3837&id=307338 for the coupler and this for the cable: https://www.fs.com/products/12285.html ). Verizon will replace both for you if you ask them though. It sounds like your Fiber isn't damaged if you were able to get the ONT online by connecting it up to the feed from the outside.
