More M13 Link IDs


#1

I recently acquired two more M13 links with markings I have not seen before. The markings are:

FT
68

and

DS.69

Where were these made? Any info would be helpful.

I think FT might be for “FT Products”, the code ‘FTP’ was used on the 7.62x51mm Stripper clips.

DS is David Steel Specialties Ltd who also made 7.62x51mm and .303" stripper clips.

Thanks. I’m sure many people overlook these markings on these common type of links, so good to have someone who knows them.
