    In 10 RD clips, these will not be for the M1 Garand.
    'CAL 30 Carbine'.........

    Both look to be marked 10 round clips. like Steve said, these would be for the M1/M2 carbines. For an M1 rifle it would say cal. .30 M2, 8 round clips. Some were marked in en bloc clips, some post ww2 had a stamp on them that looked like you were looking at the front of a loaded en bloc clip, 8 dots inside a ( ) .

    I tried googling some pics, but all I get is cartridge belts instead.

    Thanks for your replys guys, i know the one stamped (the other one has no stamps visible) is for m1 carbine (the mannequin i'm doing is for carbine) but wanted to know if there are the same bandoliers for carbine and garand (except for the stamps of course).
    So both looks original for us, right?
    Thanks!
