Not sure if its 100% correct but, many of the hardcore socom block II cloners over on arfcom use their tags and it seems they offer a M27 version
I was wondering if somebody knows the exact data and formatting contained in the data matrix of the M27 UID tag? Or any other UID tag the military uses for small arms?
It's really hard to find reliable info on this and I can't find any pics of a real M27 tag which can be scanned.
I'm guessing at least this data is contained:
I also think the NSN would be in there? I'm guessing that all UID tags use the same data formatting because when scanned all the info goes in something like a spreadsheet which always has the same formatting but that's just a wild guess. Something like: SN-CAGE-PN-NSN but is the serial number spelled out or just SN? What about the other data?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I know this is the highest form of autism but if the data is supposed to be read into some kind of spreadsheet/form/database, it's formatted in a certain way. If you scan the CLW tag you get the following:
T102-A 26504 1P235683IAR S000001 USMC NSN1005015795325
I'm just wondering if this is the correct data (the NSN, INC and FIIG numbers are correct for the M27) and formatting which is contained in the data matrix of the original tag.

Another question would be how the tags are attached on the real deal, adhesive tape, glue?
They are adhesive backed metal tags... they come with adhesive on them.
Also, I'm pretty sure the labels are laser cut from sheet material, wouldn't the adhesive melt/burn on the edges when cut with the laser?
The sheets I use are 0.22mm thick, is this the correct thickness?
