Muchas gracias Fede.

Very unusual then, is known for whom these were made?

It was a commercial item for the public in general. They used to offer a line of dummies in several color variations, with or without rubber “primer”, commemoratives, &c.

Do any of you have images of other models?

quick snapshot of two 30-06 dummies
one has the standard green plastic primer
a good friend in Switzerland had the other one made specially for me.
it was the closest they had to orange

yeah, you might know him … 😎

Have one in .45 ACP with a red colored primer.

Only a .40 S&W, with green primer.
40SW
40 hs

These also come in 9 mm Para and 7.65 mm Para. Mine have green snapping surface. My .45 Auto one also has a green snapping surface. I didn’t photograph them, because all are essentially identical to the ones shown, including the four case cannelures.

Does anyone know if they ever made this style of dummy round in 9 x 18 mm Makarov?

What material these are made of?

Or 7.62x25 Tokarev???

Or 12.7x108?

They made the following calibers:

  • Pistol: 7.65 mm Para, 9 mm Para, 10 mm Auto, .40 S&W and .45 ACP.

  • Rifle: 5.56x45, 7.5x55, 7.62x39, 7.62x51, .30-06 and .50 Cal. (12.7x99).

  • Shotgun: 12 gauge.

On another look through I found these all with green material in the primer pocket but for the .45 which is red.

Fede - thanks. A relief! I have all the pistol calibers.

Ciao!
