Killeen Machine and Tool, a subcontractor. I've got a few of those on FG Garands over the years.

They are mostly found on Winchester trigger groups.

If anyone needs one, I've got quite a few. I'd be happy to trade for Garand safeties.

There was also a 1969 contract for Ordnance for those safeties. Not all were Winchester sub-contracted.
