I received some Geco 5.56 NATO 55gr FMJ stuff today. These are 50rd boxes with plastic 10rd stripper clips, and the box says “Made in Switzerland”. These have a “T” headstamp for Thun, and I am overall impressed with this whole deal whereas it was $260 with free shipping for clipped Swiss-made 5.56! The plastic stripper clips seem good quality and feel like a glass-filled polymer type of product. I took one close-up photo of the markings on one.
I suppose the question now is, has Thun gone the way of Norma and become sort of a brand-name only of RUAG’s which is not necessarily representative of the long history of quality product?
