    Enbloc Clip ID Codes

    I figured this would be of interest to the members. There are several lists around but I figured I'd list them here since these sites tend to come and go over time.

      I got these two clips from Scott Duff back in the late 90's. Both have the early back web pattern and notches cut through.

            I have a unmarked clip that I always assumed was a early SA, turns out that it is a post war Korean clip. Another clue about pre-war and post-war SA clips are the Pre-War clips with have ribbing like the picture RCS posted, Post-War clips will have the larger ribbing. Dash marks were done to identify what machine or line was used when the clip was formed.

              I have an early unmarked SA clip. It has the early small top and bottom rings and the early small machined latch hole with no radius at the top. I have to credit J Click image for larger version

                I see that the OP new list has "HA" (no periods) as Danish. I have never seen a HA clip or photo of one with no periods. The M1 clips marked "H.A." were made by Horle Arms, Deep River, CT on U.S. gov't contract in the mid to late 50s. The late version of the clip drawing lists the then current manufacturers codes and lists H.A. as Horle Arms. Pic of H.A. marked clip attached.

                  That's interesting about Aggressive Engineering in Anaheim, Ca. I grew up in Anaheim.

                    The clips with the clip latch detent cut all the way through are Type 1 and were used for the gas trap and early gas port rifles.

                      Is there a group of collectors for the M1 clips? Trade groups ? I have several manufacturer list.

                            From the picture I cannot tell if there is something in the modified enbloc? Is it a mirror or support?

                              Back around 2011 or so, some old modified clips were found in WW2 army training area in the southwest. These clips were pretty well rusted but still had a 1/4 inch round steel bar about 3/4 inch down the clip and another notch cut into the side. This modified clip would hold the action open for cleaning and bore inspection as the follower was held in place. When using a ram rod the tip would hit the clip not the bolt face. There was a directive that showed how to modify the clip Click image for larger version
