.50 Cal Dummy Headstamp ID Question (ME 96)
« on: September 01, 2008, 08:00:21 PM »
Hello,

Long time lurker, first time poster.

Excuse me if this has been asked before (or if this is not the correct forum to post in), but I am trying to ID a .50 caliber Dummy round.

As you can see in the photographs the stamp reads:

.50 INERT ME96

I am not an expert but the only company with an "ME" I could find was the German firm Metallwerk Elisenhütte G.m.b.H. - but these rounds do not look like similar products I was able to find produced by them.







Another odd thing is the bluntness of the projectiles.  Can anyone tell me anything about these?  I know they are not rare because we have about 2,000 belted examples at work.  Thanks in advance.

Semper Fidelis
Nick

Jerry,

Sorry about that…

Manroy Engineering (UK) produced the brass and the marked M-2 links (MFT) were made by the "Metaalwaren Fabriek Tilburg", in Tilburg, the Netherlands.
