    Hi, yes, WW2 german. We call them 7.92mm over here in the UK. Better known as 8mm over in North America.

    These were used in MG's, for training, as the wood tip would create a back pressure and so cycle the action of the gun.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Some weapons were fitted with a shreader which would help break the round up on leaving the barrel. As at close range, under 25 metres, these were still dangerous. Platzpatrone is the German name for these and other blanks.

    7.92 is just a touch bigger than the old 7.62 round we used to use.

    Cheers, Ade.

    No, just only interested in WW2. But I have always been interested in Firearms design and had my first rifle at 18.

    Cheers, Ade.
