The sign on the ebay item is correct - they are 30 cal Dominion Arsenal browning links. the seller identifies them as 30-06 links, but erroneously claims they are the same. they are NOT from a lancaster bomber gun. I have a 5 gal bucket of them. these are 30-06 links. I got mine from 5,000 rds of blanks I bought back in the dark ages. These will not work for 303. To truly learn the difference between the links, try to load 303 into a 30 cal link. They fit in just fine, in fact they are VERY easy to load. then they fall out.

Louis - I mentioned a couple times in PMs to your threads to PM me - I will just send you 4-5 if you want to try to modify the 30 cal links. Send me your address, and I will drop a few in the mail. I had a lengthy email back and forth with the guy in the UK selling the "Lancaster" links. He is firmly convinced that the Spitfires and Lancaster powered turrets use 1919 Brownings, in 30 06 , and the links will work in 303 ... Sent him photos of the guns and links ( I posted those here too), he was still convinced because his buddy told him they looked like 30-06 .....

You can modify the DAQ links to hold the 303, but My experience has been that the high speed feed in the MKII causes the ammo to fall out of the links. Let us know how the project works - We may be able to jump off your work !!
