French 7.62 Nagant Cartridge

I have a 7.62 Nagant cartridge. Headstamp SFM **GG.

Can anyone help with an approximate date, and the story behind the French making cartridges for the Russian service revolver.


At one time the 7.62 m/m Nagant cartridge was fairly popular for police and military type revolvers in Europe apart from its use in Russian service arms. I would think this was the market SFM had primarily in mind. Likely its greatest popularity would have been pre 1914. Jack

SFM starting in 1897
