Do any of you know the country of origin of this 7,62x39?
Made in Switzerland by Dixi Cylindre SA.
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
Have one in .45 ACP with a red colored primer.
Only a .40 S&W, with green primer.
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?
“Does anyone know if they ever made this style of dummy round in 9 x 18 mm Makarov?
Or 7.62x25 Tokarev???
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.
