7,92x57 4 stab crimp unheadstamped


#1

This 7,9 round has a magnetic chromed projectile with a brass cases unheadstamped 4 stab crimped primer. The round has some wax at the mouth. primer pocket looks like it might have had a circular crimp that was swaged. No other signs of reloading other than sharp line at intersection of shoulder and neck.

Post-war CZ SmE. Some cartridges with head stamps, some with out. Some lots have primer sealant, some don’t. The 4 stab crimp and the nickeled SmE bullet are the common identifying feature found on all types. Also seen with the brass plated primer cup, as shown here, and a galvanized steel cup, again, with or with out head stamps, primer seals etc. JH

Joe, I am late with my thoughts but do your boxes have any markings or labels?


#7

EOD,

These rounds came in 15 round boxes with out labels, an earlier thread on the subject: iaaforum.org/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=3881

And I have seen some of these boxes in person and those boxes had no labels nor any evidence of having had a label.

Brian, thanks! I understand the boxes are just regular ones just without labeling then?


#9

EOD,

Yes, they appeared to be regular 15 round boxes without labels.

Early Post-War Czech assembly, using old stocks of “German” primers , projectiles and cases, hence the steel ZdH30/40 type primers, etc.

Nice find.


#11

Yes, all the boxes I have are unmarked and non-embossed plain German WWII style boxes.

The same Czech rounds with the clandestine headstamps as noted above, are also in the same type box, but with a pink 30mm wide paper glue tape seal sealing the tucked in flap.

Joe, you got images of that one?


#14

Alex,

Sure, they are all magnetic projectiles. I have not pulled any to determine what designation the rounds are. Some have a bit of wax at the rim of the neck. Some the annealing at neck and shoulder was not polished off.
