    Hello Adrian,

    The Dutch did use the 7.92 x 57R (rimmed) round. This is not interchangeable with the German 7,92 x 57. The Duitch 7.92 x57R is easily confused wityh the .303 round!

    Cheers,
    Emile

    Thank you I guess it means the mag is for the Czech Lewis gun "Kradspam" posted. It makes sense as Czech republic/Sudetenland was occupied or returned the the Reich, depending on how one look at it As i wrote, we also found a lot of Polish Mauser rounds. Seems like the Germans in that area were equipped with confiscated weapons and ammunition.

    If have a map showing the general area we were in. This map unfortunately does not have any date stamps. If you have a more detailed map it might be possible to narrow down who were there. We were in the general area of the Soviet 69th and 144th and the German L.Br. and 12th.P. but on the right side of the river Wop. I have no idea who the L.Br. is.

    Thank you very much Larry! It's very interesting to poke in the ground and finding out what kind of weapons and ammunition was used there. Seem like the Germans there have been using a lot of Polish and Czech items. I have never found Polish Mauser ammo on the battlefields before, not to mention a Lewis drum mag full of 7.92x57! I should have a video from the trip ready soon.

    Cheers

    Hello guys,

    Here is one of the rounds from the mag I am sure someone here on forum can tell something about this round Please note the bottom of the projectile is also stamped "PK". Talk about being thorough! The other round is Polish. I will post these in a separate thread as i am very interested in info on these rounds.
