    20mm

    Can anyone confirm that a US 20mm Hispano with a DURA headstamp was made by DURA Automotive Inc.?

    Thanks

    Dura

    Many thanks.

    I suspect that the modern day DURA company is a descendent of that division.

    Tony,

    I have
    Detroit Harvester, Detroit, MI - Aircraft engine parts
    Detroit Harvester, Toledo, Ohio - Projectiles

    There is Dura Automotive, Rochester, MI
    and Dura Corporation, Southfields, MI

    (no listings for either)

    From what I can ascertain they were two separate entities and the latter had connections with Detroit Harvester.

    There is/was a Dura Plastics of New York who were supplying the U.S Government in the 1980s

    Regards
