    It looks like a nice Austrian M16/17 relic shell. The two small holes is where insignia was once attached. Other members will be able to ellaborate. Nice piece! Cheers, Sean.

    Just for my own clarification on these.
    Wouldn't this be a M18 shell? I thought that the M16 had the M91 chin strap attachment and the M17 had the chin straps attached to the liner band and the M18 has the chin straps attached to the shell.

    Its an M17....that's all Austria made. M18's had no chinstrap bales affixed to the shell-- its strap attached to the linerband.
