    So recently i was given a box of vintage 9mm ammo...never opened it until tonite and found a bunch of ammo that AINT 9mm in there

    I have it pictured below next to a 38special round for size comparison

    I also have pics of the 2 mags
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    MOST of it has LC 52 LC 53 or LC 54 on the head stamp which I know means Lake City and year of manufacture
    [​IMG]

    but i have NO idea what caliber these are or if theyre worth anything to anyone...I have approx 80 of these plus 2 15 round mags

    I knew it as soon as i saw it. Huzzah M1 Carbine.

    The mags and ammo are worth something (find an owner)
