Dairt Co. 45 ACP Ammo Oilite Bullet Reising Sub-Machine Gun WWII
- Maker: Dairt
- Model: Ammo
- Caliber: .45 ACP
- Description: This is a scarce box of ammunition produced from once fired brass, cleaned and loaded with Oilite Bullets made by Amplex Oilite Products Co. which was part of the Evansville Chrysler Corporation. Dairt was a short-lived company believed to have only operated in 1943 selling ammunition for Defense Plant Guards. The full box contains 50 rounds with three different head stamps: RA 41, REM UMC, WRA. All appear to have the same bullets and primers and all have a distinct yellowish color resulting from the cleaning process to the once fired brass. The box has the New York, NY address and call out These Cartridges are specially adapted for the .45 Caliber Harrington & Richardson Reising Sub-Machine Gun. The box is in good condition with edge wear and tears to both flaps which were taped with masking tape. A unique and interesting piece of WWII history that warrants further research.
