This is a bit outside of my normal area of knowledge.
I am told that in WWI, the German army in addition to the 150,000 “Red 9” Mauser C96 pistols, purchased a number of the regular 7.63mm versions. I was previously under the impression that any 7.63mm C96s would have been private purcases.
What ammunition were issued for these? Ordinary DWM commercial? I do not recall ever seeing a German military WWI loading.
One for John or Lew?
