3 AS NEW Head Space Chamber Gauges .30-06

Ted,
All 3 have R-R stamped on them and I have tried to find on Google who that is and have not had any luck. I bought a collection of M1 Garand & M14 NOS small parts and this one set of 3 AS NEW Head Space Chamber Gauges .30-06 was included. I honestly don't know if they are military or commercial unless I can find who or what was R-R. If you find any information on R-R please let me know.

Thank you,
Rodney from Texas

I googled RR and found some 8mm Mauser headspace gauges marked RR that sold on gun auction so I am guessing commercial.

R-R .30-06 Head Space Gauges

Jeremy, THANK YOU, I wonder what years they were in business.
The .30-06 Head Space Gauges look like quality gauges which were included in the lot of the collection of M1 & M14 parts I bought. Appreciate your help, Rodney

AzMedic,
I thank you and I called and asked if they ever made Head Space Chamber Gauges for .30-06 cartridge and was told they do not make or produce anything. He said R & R Gage Company was a distributor for instrument gages. Guess I will have do do more research but appreciate your help. Thanks, Rodney

Your gauges are from Redford Reamers.

Their address was:
Redford Reamer Co.
P.O. Box 4863
Detroit 19, Michigan.

I believe they are commercial.

Tom, I THANK YOU, from what I saw on page 73 bottom left Redford Reamer Co. has to be the maker. That means these headspace gauges should be 61+ years old. I sure appreciate your help and knowledge.

Thanks, Rodney
