    One of mine also had one of those. Other one had a brass c/12 na primer. I think both work in the same way. Also says c/12 na on it too.

    No, they are used all over and all kinds of types.

    Yea. True. Ive seen them in naval cases and al sorts. Ive also got a c/12 primer with the 3 slots that’s also steel.
