7.9x57 Mg 15 drum cartridge guide

Does anyone know what this is?
save 7.65.....
Probably aluminum, with a steel pin going through below the link?
The markings are hard to read…especially for me!
Thanks, Dan

Hi Dan, this is used as a cartridge guide in the German MG 15 machine gun drum. This model goes in the 2nd to 6th position of a starting belt composed of seven dummy cartridges. There is also a shorter belt having this cartridge in the 2nd and 3rd position.

Here is a previous thread on the subject: Unknown 7mm Mauser?



Thanks Fede!
