Here is the new 5,8mm pistol and submachinegun ammo used by the chinese special forces and police. They used a rubber tip. An improvement for law enforcement troops.
The army used the ammo in pistols and submachineguns. The pistol ammunition is called DAP 92.
Until now I only couldt locate the normal ball ammunition. There is a special subsonic round and a propelling cartridge. The propelling round has a longer caseneck and is folded and is used in the submachinegun to fire grenades.
Anybody has ever seen a dummy or blank?
Here is a 50 rd. box of ‘ball ammunition’ or ‘regular ammo’ in chinese.
To give an idea of the size of the round here in comparison with a 7,62 Type 64 round . It is a rimles version of the .320 ACP .
Here is an pic of the prototype and a cutaway of the round
I will see what I can find out and hope more rounds show up soon. It is may be too new and only in military use.
