Israeli belt box


#1

Hello,

here is an Israeli belt box for a 230 round belt, I presume in 7,62x51 Nato.

Can anyone translate that marking in order to determine what kind of fabric belt or metallic links was used and also the time period (1973).

Thanks in advance,

Cheers,

JFL

It says it was packed for a Mag58 GPMG, so it would be a link belt. From the box markings I would say the rounds are 1973 but the can was packed in 1974. It is 7.62 Nato, 4 ball for each tracer.

Thank you very much for that lightening fast answer.

I suppose the belt was then with M13 links ?

I would say yes, M13, if that’s the standard Nato link, but I really don’t know my links.
