I parked a couple dozen of the rusty left-over clips from last year's CMP order this evening.

They turned out pretty well, & I saw the following markings:

BRW1
BRW2
BRW4
BRW7
DAQ
IS3
W4
SA

Mostly varying flavors of BRW, but 6 SA, 2 DAQ, 1 IS3 & 1 W4 (Winchester?)

I still have a couple dozen of the rusty clips to go. Will strip & park them soon.

I use a $9 hot plate from Wal-Mart, a SS pot & Radocy zinc phosphate parkerizing solution.

Got the idea & solution type from JAS, who as done some really nice work with it.

Thanks guys, I was afraid that W4 marked clip wasn't Winchester. Oh well...

Why all the number variations for the BRW clips?

Stripped & reparked 93 clips this afternoon. :shock:

I've got ~ 1/3 of them wiped down now, ready for use. All but a handful of the ones I've finished this evening have been BRW 1 clips, with a few BRW 4s as well as a few blank clips.

I'll finish wiping down the remainder tomorrow night, but I expect the rest will be mostly BRW as well.
