    Interesting info. I noticed the very heavy neck on the brass and with the info on the .22 adapter it makes sense. What is the MV and ME? I am not much into reloading.

    Regards, Lars

    When the L1A1 rifle (FN FAL) was under development in the UK (c.1954-5) a similar type charger was under consideration. It was known as the "Horseshoe" charger and examples are very hard to find today.

    Also, during WW2 a similar charger was tried for the Bren gun, two chargers filling a magazine.

    Picture shows a 7.62mm Horseshoe charger made by Thomas French Ltd and an ammuntion label from the same period, plus a 14 round .303 Bren gun charger.

    Dear COLT 1911A1 !
    As I have a special interest on all conversions of 11.3 mm Gasser M1870 Montenegrin revolvers and 11.3 mm Montenegrin ammo I would like to know if teh shown on your 4th attached photo 11.3 mm Gasser Montenegrin bullet is available for sale by you as I would be very interested to buy it. In negative case I would be also very interested to view more detailed photos of it and eventually to examine it in person, as we are both Greeks living in Greece. If you agree, by all means I'll be looking forward to hear from you soon.
    Regards: Thalis

    Hi there Thalis, i just got back from vacation and noticed your request. Unfortunately i don't have the specific cartridge anymore...I gave it to a good friend of mine as a gift, to display it, under the old rusted Montenegrin-Gasser he found in a tree in the vicinity of his village property. The guy lives near my house but he has also a village house near Larrisa Thessaly. So this cart. together with a rusty skeletonized Montenegrin now rest on top of his fireplace...sorry...But i can tell you it was empty with fired primer and somebody had stuck a .45 Auto slug in it to look complete...This was the reason that i gave the Frankencartridge away. Do you have any authentic 11.3mm Montenegrin? I think that they are pretty hard to find...
    My best regards, συγνώμη για τα άσχημα νέα, Thanos.
