I am a bit confused about this box. Has this name anything to do with THE original Nobel? What is C.I.P.? What is Banco di Prova?

THE original Nobel ?
Which one ?
Nobel’s Explosives Co, Glasgow ?
or after:
Nobel Industries limited, London ?

CIP is Commission Internationale Permanente pour l’epreuve des armes portatives. It is an organisation which publish the rules for ctges dimensions and guns proofing.
Equivalent of SAAMI, but the rules are defined by governments instead of by manufacturers.
USA doen’t belong to CIP, therefore the dimensions of ctges and chambers are a little bite different than in Europe

Banco di Prova is the official Proof House of Italy

Thanks. I was thinking of Alfred Nobel and company’s Swedish-German roots.

Banco di prova is the official italian proof house,but the writing is referred to the factory “proof house” not to the national one
