    If you do a search on "headstamps" you will find my post about all the worldwide headstamps referernce info I put in here. It covers small arms up to and including 20mm to 40mm rounds.

    I'm trying to identify a 9mm head stamp. It is B/|\E. I've seen an online listing refer to it as B^E with a picture of the exact head stamp I have but they don't say who it is. I'm so far assuming it is BNE but not sure. I had gotten a 1941 Walter P38 with the original bullets in the clip that were there when the vet pulled it from the German. 8 of the bullets were German manufactured (like I expect the one I'm trying to identify is) but 9 of the bullets were WRA (USA - Winchester Repeating Arms Co). So it is obvious they were trying to use any bullets they could find and had gotten some American Ammo.

    I think that's going to turn out to be the Royal Ordnance Factory, Blackpole, UK. Their headstamp is BE, and I believe the /l\ is, in fact, a Broad Arrow, meaning British Government Issue.

    Nice! Thanks for the list.. I was wondering if you could also get me a list of new ammo because I need to get updated too. I own a small store in our place and there are clients who are looking for certain brands. nice post!
