8mm Model 88 Ammo

Article about: I have a clip with five of these round nosed cartridges. Interestingly the seller claimed that there were no headstamps on the cartridges because they were made for the IRA and without stamp

    Is your clip marked?

    The only mark on the clip is...II...the cartridge case is the standard 7.92x57mm mauser,but the bullets are .318 rather than .323 and are round nosed.

    Zwerge, one of mine is also marked "II", the other with an "O" (what these mean I have no idea !), these rounds are extremley difficult to find/obtain, you are lucky to have a clip full ! Thanks for showing.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Hi Steve and Zwerge,
    One of mine is marked 'II' and the other one 'S' or something. I think these are maker marks, because I saw the 'S' mark before on an Imperial M16 helmet.
    Here are some pics.

    Ingrid, well spotted and remembered ! it is indeed a known mm of the Stahlhelm, a superimposed "S over H" stamp is "Siemens & Halske A.G.", of Siemenstadt in Berlin (they made the M16 in size 60 only). By the way , is your G88 an "88/S" as it is fitted with a spring loaded cover over the clip ejection opening on the bottom of the magazine housing.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thanks Steve,
    I'm curious for what 'II' stands for.

    Thanks again Steve,
    I saw that book before. There was one for sale on an auction site last month, it went for 15 euros.
