7.62 x 38.5mm Russian Nagant for submachine gun

Recently acquired this and of course am curious about its intended use. Was told it was a variation on the 7.62 x 38.5Rmm Russian Nagant (which it’s dimensions are identical to), but was informed it was for some sort of experimental Russian submachine gun possibly from the 1930’s. Headstamp is: “T П З 32” or “T П З 52” - the top of the year is cut off. Bullet is a flat nosed GMCS with 2 pin stabs.

Any thoughts, pictures?

That’s the info I have on the round, and it’s definitely the 1932 date.

Just recently we had a thread on this one:

Oh, excellent - thanks guys!
