Finally, a P inside circle!
enfield56 do you mind if I add it to the others you’ve graciously donated? :)
That possible X is most likely a mis-struck H. I don’t remember if I’ve ever seen any others like it. I’ll dig through my old notes. If not then I’ll clarify that it is indeed an H.
Many of the unconfirmed are just that, no confirmation if they exist or not. Mostly grasping at straws. For a very few someone said they saw one once, others a company was known to have produced ammunition so might have produced clips, yet others may have been makers of 11mm Werndl and the like and had nothing to do with the 8x50 & 8x56 rifles. I’m hoping someone, someday, might be able to pop up and say “Hey, here’s one of those” or at least give more information. I doubt I’ll ever know the truth about Dr. Kubenick though. That’s only there after being found on a disorganized Hungarian site with weaponry information scattered around the page.
The SMI ones are close to being added to the confirmed section. If I could just find some paperwork or maybe even first hand accounts (along with other statements made already) I’d put those in that section. I’m asking about it on an Italian WW2 forum. As it is I think I’ll wait to see if anything else pops up then put them in the unmarked section.
That’s some great info, thanks! Definitely going to hold onto that and edit the text on the page. :)
Hmm, ok, Austrian eagles (singel and double headed) were produced by Patronenfabrik Lichtenwörth AG, formerly Georg Roth’s Lichtenworth plant, from 1928 - 1932. Hirtenberger after 1933, correct? I’ll need to make note of the change of designs through the years and will give them their own sections.
So MF is Wollersdorf, but the absolute latest manufacturing date for any markings of theirs would be 1925, and for military markings it would most likely be 1918. Never heard of a w in W clip either.
Guys, thanks so much for your help! :)
