    modern 20mm MG151 cases

    can anyone confirm that the German 2cm MG151 was still in service in the 1970s? I picked up 2 brass cases that are headstamped; 20-MG-151, 5-MR-76-F with a manufacturers logo on one that looks like a garden parasol with an N on the left and + on the right! Any info. would be appreciated, Dave

    France used it as a helicopter gun into the 1970s, and I believe that your case is French (although I'm no expert on headstamps).

    The MG 151 and its ammo are of course still made in South Africa today, as the Vektor GA-1.
