[quote] I was going through some stuff I have had for years, and inside a
.30 GI can I found this 110-round web ammunition belt made in 1943. It is obviously not for .30 caliber, but I didn’t have a single .50 MG round to check it out with. This is actually just one belt, showing both ends, since it is obvious that the belts are designed to joined to others of the same type and held together with a cartridge, as the square cut in one end and the tab on the other end both are shell loops as well. I had never seen a web ammunition belt for a .50 Browning, but have to assume that’s what this is for.
Admittedly, I have very little experience with “Ma Deuce” in any of its forms (Ground, tank, aircraft, etc.).
Does anyone have any comments or further information on these? Are they common, scarce or rare?
