    AP 30.06 Head stamp?

    I picked up a few clips with AP rounds today. The head stamp is "SL 4". Would this be St. Louis? The clips are marked "NW" for what it's worth.

    Your clips are St Louis 1944 and NW is Northwest Metal Products from Kent, Washington

    There are at least four variations of the NW stamp

      Thanks. I looked closer at the clip markings. I have 2 variations. One has the letters NW going the long way to the clip, and the other going the short way. Also one clip is marked either WEP, or PEW or P3W. I need to get my magnifying glass to the rescue.

        WEP clips were manufactured, I believe, by Wade Electrical Products Co., Sturgis MI. I think there are between 8 and 10 variations or so, many have a number, which would be 1 through 5, 6, or 7 possibly.

        Please post some photos so we can have a look!!

          I was figuring to get some pics up. I can test my camera to see how good a close up I can do. I have some pics to put on a hosting site since it looks like that's how this forum works.

            You don't have to use a hosting site here. You can upload photos directly to your posts if you wish.
