    Wow! Russians standing on your front porch and you're still stamping out ammo. Now that's pure optimistic dedication.

    Nice clean example.

    I have some boxes of 7.92 Kurz ( for the MP44) in similar condition. Again '45 dated.

    Hi,both of these factories were located quite a ways north and west of Berlin,so I guess there wasn`t much fighting around there,and besides,..MIT UNSER FÜHRER ZUM SIEG...Ade would you post some pics of your ammo please,the only Kurz round I have is a postwar one.

    Great looking ammo Ade and Zwerge. I know it gets old hearing, but the German engineers really were way ahead of the world when they designed and manufactured this shorter auto ammo. Now my stupid question Ade. Is that a replacement primer in your ammo or did they drill the charge out of the original?

    Thanks,
    Jay

    Hi Jay, the primers original but made inert chemically.

    Cheers, Ade.
