Default M1 Garand Enblock identification

Does anyone have a list of WW2 and post war enblock markings? What I'm looking for is info on the IS, WEP, S, HA, f, C, BLM, etc. clips. Think WW2 or post war, NOT makers codes.

AFAIK, the markings on the clips indicate the manufacturer. What are you asking???

An Enblock clip that is stamped "IS 3." Is that a WW2 or post war clip? "" "" "" stamped "IS 7" Is that a WW2 or post war clip? "" "" "" stamped "S" Is that a WW2 or post war clip? Here it comes...someone's going to provide a link to some guys pictures that tell me that IS stands for International Silver. DUH..

This listing has some of the manufacturers marked as Commercial, Military Contract and a few as WWII. This is the only list I am aware of that specifically points to certain clips as being WWII.

Some research will likely need to be done to determine which companies received contracts to produce clips during WWII, and further to determine which companies actually made shipments during that time period.

I know this isn't EXACTLY what you asked for, but it is the only list I am aware of aside from what you've already been given so you can hold the snide remarks.

..A simple "Uhh..I don't know," would suffice. Yeah. I guess I could call up International Silver and ask them.

Awesome..I just called them and they told me that IS 1,2,3,4 are all WW2! I'll have to call the other makers. Next Stanley works, then DAQ in Canada.
