I am doing an article on the various Nahpatrone cartridges and boxes. The earliest documentation I have besides cartridges and boxes is some Polte drawings of various Nahpatrone rounds, but not the one that was produced. These date from May to August 1942. The production Polte rounds documented are all headstamped lot 33 of 1942, just before production of P08 stopped at Polte.
Does anyone know when Polte stopped producing 9x19mm cases???
They continued loading P08 ammunition, at least the Nahpartrone into 1943 and I wouldn’t be surprised to see normal ball rounds in boxes with 1943 load dates, but haven’t documented any. I know their are late 42 aux cases loaded with the zinc color 08/40 primers which tend to be later in the war.
Does anyone have any drawings or other documentation of the normal green case Nahpatrone green case cartridges or even the “X” headstamped cartridges???
Any help would be appreciated.
