Unique to the 155 mm M777 Light Weight Howitzer weapon system design is the use of a magazine assembly mounted in the breach mechanism of the howitzer in which ten M82 percussion primers are loaded. This design allows the primers to experience shock loadings associated with multiple howitzer firings.</P> <P>Headstamp is: M82 LS-1 59-33 12-67. It has a nice slightly uneven light patina to it. Condition Very Good.</P>
