Nice! I'm thinking I want every one of them!
Comprehensive indeed...didn't see the chineese 5rd that came with my SKS paratoop DM, but I spotted my 30 and 40 rounders.

All of mine are Russian 30 round steel. They work great!
There is some stuff missing. Just right off the bat I see no Bosnian "boy scouts" either with Fleur and or without. I see no E German differentiation between those and Russians. Most Russian styles are not russian made these days. Most are Soviet era Soviet made but... you have to get real close and personal to distinguish Russian Izvek or Tula mades. And speaking of those... that chart doesn't even get into that part of the identification issue.
