    Red Line, a mystery indeed....however, if no one here can explain..see here, Mills grenades there is an e-mail link near the bottom of the page, I would ask there.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Maybe the base plugs were manufactured at one place then sent to the assemblers who supplied all the other parts and then overstamped it with the date and their mark??

    I think we are closer to the truth, but why we do not find many other base plug with the same marking?
