During WWII Geco took over management of SFM. Does anyone know when his takeover occured? SFM was headquartered in Paris, so it could have occurred at the beginning of the war, Iike FN and S&B. On the other hand, SFM may have moved to Vichy France and was only taken over after September 1944 when Vichy France ceased to exist.
I only know of one headstamp that resulted after the Geco takeover and that is GSF on 6.35mm Browning. which probably dates from the second half of 1943. This would imply Geco takeover sometime between mid-1940 and mid-1943. Does anyone have an actual date???
Are there any other cartridges made by SFM under Geco control and if so, please post headstamps and box labels. I am particularly interested in any other GSF headstamps.
All help appreciated.
