Another collector I know who isn’t on the forum bought this belt.
It holds 250 rounds and came loaded with British RG 5.56 Blanks. This may not tbe the original loading, but these were in it when he got it. They are a very tight fit, it doesn’t appear that the older cartridges such as 7.92 Mauser and similar sized rounds would fit.
The belt is numbered every 25 rounds. At slot number 25 it is ink stamped “25”, “50” at number 50 etc. The only markings on it are “C3951”. This is stamped into the steel starter tab in very small letters.
Does anyone know where this was made, what gun it was for, and whether it should be loaded with 5.56 Blanks?
Thanks for any info.
