    Hi All,
    Cannot find reference. I have an unmarked M-42. It does have a lot number in the rear (3617) but no other numbers... no decals, no leather but a liner... and no maker marks on the metal liner. (chin strap is post war India)

    Did you look to see if the maker & and size stampings or near the bale?

    Liner band should be marked on the outside of the band
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    Looked everywhere. No marks anywhere else. Band has been pried and nothing on either side of it.

    I think it is a rear stamped HKP or CKL. The vent hole looks HKP...but can't be sure. With that lot# it should be stamped just over the #'s. Just a weak strike. Liner is probably dated 1943 IMO

    ckl would be my educated guess.
