Since about 2001 Romanian “SC Uzina Mecanica Cugir SA subsidiary of CN ROMARM SA” known as “CUGIR” is producing small arms ammunition. They did before 1945 and shortly after with the hs “CMC” and for some reason they stopped in 1948 (to my observations). After the fall of communism and restructuration of the defense industry in the 1990’s “CUGIR” decided to start production of calibers below 12.7mm (which they made for decades) and entered into NATO calibers (5.56, 7.62 and 12.7x99).
I been wondering about their hs as we had seen only numerical codes of them before. Since the “SADU” factory (umsadu.ro) stopped using numerical codes in 2006 and is using “SADU” in hs since then I was curious to find out what “CUGIR” was using now. Till today I had no answer but luckily found a very blurry image of a 5.56x45 hs saying “5.56 01 CUGIR”.
Anybody out there who has clear images of “CUGIR” hs and in particular form other years and on other calibers?
