Carcano charger "M.U.G.943"


#1

I have a Carcano steel charger “M.J.G. 943” or “M.U.G.943” . What is “M.J.G./M.U.G.”? I’ll try to add imaging domani.

The real marking is “M.U.G” and you can find 942 or 943 year.
The clips were plated steel and were used with BPD 6,5 cartridges
At date the meaning of this marking is unknown.

I advise You a couple of links:

MUG 941 also exists.

Vlad, as far we know, MUG 941 ans 943 clips were tin plated steel, whereas MUG 942 clips were nikel plated steel
