    Excellent condition 6.5 MS Greek ammo. These stuff are pretty scarce even in the country that used them for nearly 40 years. Hadn't ever seen a stripper clip for Greek MS. Thanks zwerge.

    Zwerge, can you also post photo of the headstamps of the cartridges ?
    It seems that the tips of the projectiles are made of other material than the gilding metal. Correct me if i'm wrong.

    Interesting ....Do the cartridges have a date ? Try to find some original greek ammo to match. The original greek-made ammo show Ε Π Κ (Epsilon Pi Kappa), on top, that's the Greek State Arsenal, E Σ (Epsilon Sigma), left & right, that is for Greek Army and dates ranging probably from 1905 until 1939-1940, at the bottom of the case head.
    Probably when you come here, i can show you a few examples.
    Thanks for the reply,
    regards,
    Thanos.

    Nice find ...Yes it's Hirtenberger allright; the Greeks bought large quantities of austrian ammo for the Steyr-made MSs, before they could tool-up for large-scale ammo production. Thank you for the photo, nice talking to you,
    Best Regards,
