M1 Garand 8 Rond Clips - WWII?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have a question, how can you recognize original WWII Garand Enbloc clips.

I know clips made by MBZ are Dutch post war manufactured ones.

 

Thanks for the help!

Field of interest in WWII and always interested in purchasing items related to the following:

26th Infantry "Yankee" Division

Army Nurse Corps

Purple Hearts/Medal Group (KIA/WIA) to ETO men

Purple Hearts/Medal Group (KIA/WIA)

KIA Purple Hearts specific men

 

My personal website about the 26th Infantry Division:

According to a PDF that I downloaded several months ago, the following are WWII

SA (Springfield Armory) (post-war are unmarked)

WRA (Winchester)

B-W (Borg Warner numbers 1-10) (BR-W are post-war)

IS (International Silver)

S or SW (Stanley Works)

AMP (All Metal Products)

WEP (Wade Electronic Products)

NW (Northwestern Metal Products)

f (Fedders Manufacturing)

C (Lerio Patent Cup Company)

I can't vouch for the complete accuracy of this list, but it is the best I've come up with.

Another interesting point about the WWII era Springfield Armory enbloc clips is the variations in manufacture one can find. For instance, some clips have a small bar above and below the "SA" -

Then there is the tall font and the short font variants -

There may also be more variations on a theme floating out there.
