The recent work on Huck Blanks raised some questions in my mind on the Huck dummy cartridges from the same period (1951-1959).
Most who collect 9x19 have seen the Huck plated dummy with the deep groove around the case and the three holes below the groove. Sunkel, in his excellent pamplet on Huck has a copy of the drawing of this dummy, confirming it as a Huck product.
All of the dummies of this type are made on fired cases from a wide range of sources, although the Spanish cases with FNT 1951 and GFL headstamped cases seem ot be found most often. I have seen a number of these dummies in collections that are identified as being from the country identified in the headstamp.
There is another dummy illustrated in Sunkel’s pamplet, but it is one I have never seen, or heard of the existence of an example. It is a drawn brass case and bullet shape with a seperate metal head and flutes in the case. It is listed as item “35” and is dated 1956.
A dummy of the same style was produced, and is not particularly unusual in 45ACP as well as in 30-06, but no dummies of this style in 9x19 have surfaced.
The final entry in Sunkel’s pamplet (item 57) is a 9x19mm dummy (not illustrated) dated 1961 and refers back to item 35, the fluted dummy.
I believe this entry says roughly that Item 57 is probably like item 35!
[b]Has anyone seen a Huck dummy #35???
Has anyone any more information on Huck dummy #57"[/b]
All info is appreciated.
