I got this little box of 5 grenade blanks for what I would assume would be the StG 57 (Was the Schmidt rifles still in use, and could they accept muzzle-fired grenades?) some time ago. I tried finding out what the rounds look like, but I couldn’t find a designation/name.
Does anyone have pictures of the cartridges inside, and/or know their headstamp?
While searching I found this picture in an .pdf file, “Das Sturmgewehr 57 und Die Gewehrgranaten 58”:
Could this be it?
I would open it up to have a look, but since I have no clue whether these are a dime a dozen or actually worth keeping, I’ll leave it in its good un-opened condition for now.
As a relatively new collector here in Norway, I have to say it’s very hard to find un-opened boxes of anything; Norwegian collectors seem to rip up whatever cardboard gets to their hands…
Thanks in advance!
