    Identifying Gas Cylinder

    I bought an unused Gas Cylinder off ebay from an Italian dealer. That leads me to believe it may be Breda or Berretta. It has no markings. It has many/most/all of the SA features. i.e flat top ring, beveled lug, and others. Definitely NOT Winchester. Does anyone know how to identify the origin of these Italian parts vs SA?

    Breda gas cylinders will be stamped BMB, Beretta will be stamped PB on the tang

      Thanks. So that rules out Italian. I ran through one of those "Is it IHC" questionnaires. Doesn't quite seem to fit. So I guess in the end it is likely SA.

        If you have access to Larry Babcock's book, he has a section on how to identify the different makers, albeit confusing at best.
