    Primer cartridge??

    Given this last week, looks to be some type of primer cartridge, marked RG L1A4 81 UP
    base is very heavy, that’s why I think it’s a primer.
    anyone help??

    Vent Tin a.jpgVent Tin b.jpgVents c.jpgVent d.jpgThis is the tin for L3A1 vent tubes .625". Aluminium base and brassy steel lid.

    Two vent tubes L1A4. The new case shows the threaded primer pocket.
