Jon, thanks, could you give the years per caliber as well?

Details on the 9mm revolver cartridge can be found at
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=11874&hilit=NATO+Dave

Subsequent to this posting, I’ve had the opportunity to shoot one - it felt equivalent to a underpowered 38 S&W.

I’ll review my collection of cases and see if there’s anything not already posted.

I think Lew Curtis wrote a article for the IAA Journal on Chinese headstamps but I do not remember the Journal # and I cannot get to my copy right now. Perhaps someone else can provide that info.

Lew did have a great article. You can find it on line using a google search for Chinese headstamps. This posting though we were looking for specific headstamps and pics of them as many have a great deal of talk about them in many forums and books, but no pictures that we have seen. Trying to establish with 100% proof these exist. Anyone have any more of these?

I recently received a batch of the little airplane models made of Chinese cartridge cases. There were some 5.8x21 cases with 74 headstamps, and a date of 14, which seems a new date to the lists of headstamps for that caliber that I have seen, although I guess we should expect that each year in recent history will exist for that caliber anyway. These models are also all based around a 7.62x54r cartridge with a headstamp that I don’t recall seeing, and it looks more like a commercial / retail style of headstamp than military.
