    Re: Enbloc question

    There is no such thing as Greek Enblocs. The Greeks used USGI , SF French and German JMO ,L&H, etc
    JMO's only function well with brass that has the wider extractor grove. HXP 71 with narrow groove and earlier it wont function well with JMO's. As I remember USGI M2ball also has the narrow cut and will not function reliably
    Many seem to have problems with the French SF enblocs
    I loved the earlier HXP, it came loaded on all USGI enblocs

    Re: Enbloc question

    I was told by a much more experienced collector the WWII SA en-bloc clips that you have too look at the ribbing on the rear. If it is a clean well defined K shape like the one pictured in the upper left it is WWII production. Wide rib rear flats are all post war the SA lettering stamped on the rear weather its lager or small, single or double bar denotes the press the clip was stamped out on.

    I just snatched up 10 more SA en-bloc clips, all are post war with a mix of both large and small SA lettering but all are wide ribbed.

    Re: Enbloc question

    Any input on this clip? I have a couple of 2-rounders, a couple 5-rounders and a literal butt-ton of 8-rounders. I don't know when or where this odd duck showed up in my gear. It's marked "AEC 3" and will loosely hold five rounds, but the right-most "bottom" round is almost loose enough to fall out.

    Looks like a 5-round clip so that you can hunt with your M1 without the game warden lightening your wallet.

    Roger that- but it's a heck of a lot different than my other AEC 3 five rounder!

    Re: Enbloc question

    I've got an Enbloc of 30-06 sitting on the top shelf of my desk.

    I've taken it out with me several times . . . my M1A just doesn't like it . . . so it's a decoration.

    May God bless,

    You can swap out those 30-06 rounds for 308 just like in the photo and take it out again. It won't feed in your M1A, but at least it's some spare rounds!

    I bet the one in your first post is modified so that you can reload from the top without ejecting the clip.

    Give that a try and see.
