IHC Stamped Bullet Guide

International Stamped Bullet Guide

International used the late post war type stamped bullet guide.  It has the folded over top.  Post war bullet guides have the notch on one side.  It is believed that this notch was to aid in rifle assembly.  IHC bullet guides usually have a deep satr or seashell swage to hold the timing leg in place.  HRA used this same type swage late in their production.  The parts might have come from IHC.
 
Some early production Internationals have been found with a eight point star looking "swage", this type is more common in early HRA production.  Due to manufacturing problems International received help from HRA.  These parts showing up in early Interntional production could be a result of this help.
