headstamp?


Recommended Posts

I was given a bag of 38 spec. brass. when sorting I ran across some with a unusual headstamp.

1 side has 38SPL and across from there something that looks like arabic writing. 

Any ideas who makes them?

Could be older Turkish Contract S&W like this .44 Special

This wouldn't happen to be Browning brand ammo?  They put their Buck symbol on the headstamp and if you are looking at it sideways or upside-down it can look a little like a foreign language.

Israeli armed forces had some S&W Military and Police and loaded for them in the 70's and 80's.

That's what I was thinking, too.
