Corbin made two very similar sizes. One had a body width of 1-1/2" and the other slightly larger at 1-3/4". Jordan, I assume these military ones are the 1-1/2" ones?

The Canadian ones are marked Made in Canada and do show up in antique stores but not that often (in my experience). However Corbin in the USA made them for the civilian market and if you can live with "MADE IN USA" on them they are available.

When I worked in Belleville in the late 1980's the Corbin plant was still there, a massive complex full of red brick buildings just west of the downtown core on the Moira River. It was in its death throws and was demolished soon afterwards.
