    Default M27 UID tag data

    Hi guys,

    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:

    SN 172-xxxxxx
    CAGE 3HN73
    PN 235683IAR

    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.

    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

    It's not 100% correct and triggers my clone autism. If you look at the font it's off, the I in IAR is suppose to be a sans serif font, CLW uses a serif font just for the I for some reason. The rest is also off if compared to this pic which was posted here some time ago and is supposedly from a genuine M38. I'm guessing they use the same tags for the M27 and M38. But my question relates to the data contained in the data matrix code and its formatting.

    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.

    As far as the font, yes it is as close as I am “legally” advised to get. The format and data ca,directly from an M27 IAR uid that I scanned and copied the data from. I changed the serial numbers only. But the M27 also didn’t have the first part of the serial, only the last digits after the hyphen.

    Awesome, thanks a lot!

    This is my first try, I still have to tweak it a little bit, the size of the code, the size of the tag itself and the data in the code is not correct.

    I tried to copy the tag in this pic, the bent writing is not centered and I tried to reproduce it that way.

    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.

    Thanks, that's what I suspected. I think the material is called MIL-STD-130 but I wasn't able find someone who sells it in small quantities.

    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?
