455 Arabic Script


#1

Howdy Gents, This 455 mark 2 Revolver has an interesting Arabic Script on the headstamp, anybody know what country this was made for and what the Arabic writing says

The “word” to the left looks a bit like Misr (Egypt). I’ve never seen a headstamp like that.


#3

It looks like the round is a K C II with the rest overstamped.


#4

I agree with Armourer. I don’t know the significance of the overstamp, but you can plainly see the “C” in the headstamp.


#5

I’d like to see more than one round with this same exact headstamp. I could be that there was something on the bottom of the case when the bunter struck it, causing the odd markings.

Can you post a profile shot to see if it is an original bullet or a non-standard reload?


#7

It’s a standard issue lead bullet with the cannelure just below the case mouth and all original factory Randy
