its a training round to teach new recruits how to use the gun without killing themselves for use with the mg34/42 k98 and all the other 7.92 guns good find
Thanks Tom! I wasn't sure it's german. This leaves me wondering what the hell did they do with dummy rounds in a combat line ...misteries of metal detecting!
where abouts did you find it?
I have around 50-60 of them found from old training field. It cleans up perfectly with toothpaste, it is made of brass.
Thank you guys !
Interesting note to add, if you guys read Panzer commander by Hans Von Luck, he recounts 21st Panzer, 125 Panzer grenadiers, company (forget which one), II Battlion, Was out doing field training with Dummy rounds, while British paratroopers were coming down. If i remember correctly. night June 5/ 6th
