Commercial ammunition from prvi partizan in the UK


#1

Hello,

There have been a few queries on the forum regarding ammunition made by Prvi Partizan (PPU). Below is a scan of a current advertisement for PPU ammunition and components available in the UK. PPU have made other calibres, including 8x56Rmm, and offer components such as bullets, cases, and primers and also blanks. All PPU ammo that I have come across so far has had the nny headstamp including the calibre e.g. 7.62x39, 7.5x55 etc.

You are correct in that there was a ban and mass confiscation of all breech loading pistols. Those of us who were so “inconvenienced” were allowed to claim compensation for all guns, tools, ammo and components. The police collected these and a few months later we got paid. However, some pistol calibres live on in lever action rifles, called “Gallery Rifles” over here. It is these shooters that the PPU advertisement is directed at. Only air pistols and muzzle loading pistols are in use by the law-abiding people here, the criminals can use whatever they wish.

I wonder, does PPU make it’s own primers, or are they rebranding Ginex primers?

Were you forced to hand over tools, ammo and components?
