7.62 Mosin-Nagant

I have this 7.62 Nagant that I know nothing about (I really don’t know much about any Nagants). It has a silver plastic(?) bullet. It’s total weight is 13.49 grams. My other Nagants weigh between 23 and 24 grams. Any thoughts as to who made it and when and for what purpose?


This one is an Egyptian blank by #10 Abu-Kir Company for Engineering Industries (often referred to as “Alexandria” but this is only the location). Made in 1977 if my interpretation of the HS orientation is correct (if not it would be 1988 but that seems unlikely to me).
They also exist with black plastic projectiles.

1977 is correct.
