9x19 para production steps


I picked up this item at the last cartridge collectors show over here. You don’t see these too often.

The display case shows the production steps of a 9mm Parabellum case and bullet.

According to the head stamps (which were stamped at the 5th step) and the labels the set was put together using material from the French ‘Atelier de Fabrication de Toulouse’.

Head stamp is 3-74 F 9 TE

The set, dating from 1974, just needed a little TLC, the case had done it’s protective work well, but was a little dried out and dirty. Some good furniture wax did miracles to the tired wood.


Nice!!! There is a lot to learn from the draw sets.
