please be aware of the fake wooden blanks of 7.92x33 with aux head stamp produced/distributed by two Czech collectors (names can provide via PM). To the public known as distributors on 8mm Rapid rounds (copies) and several other home-made, doubtful items. Shortly after I have shown on one of the Czech shooting forum the picture of my S&B (ak) blanks - both genuine, originals as they came from S&B archives - they have got the aux cases and started production of these German rounds. The left one holds the head stamp aux_7.9_42_2 or aux_7.9_42_3 (both live cartridges were sold by Dieter Kapell at German meeting - used as source of narrow grow cases); the right one has the aux_44_St_(different lots). See the picture below:
If you look carefully - you can see the fresh crimping tool marks. (bullets are made based on the drawings shown in Dieter’s book. I have approached them that both their cartridges are fakes - for the few years they have stopped the distribution…recently I have met the guy who has spent quite huge money for their products…so still several rounds are “for sale”
For the comparison - two my original “ak” blanks (2 different boxes):
Don’t pay for worthless stuff!
