Having seen some clips of “Circle M” M88 ammo ( ex-Jiri Roth Factory, Bratislava) I was wondering if there are other years of this cartridge’s Production by either “Circle M” or its successor in Slovakia, at Povascke Bystrica, “Z”.
it seems that the Jiri Roth Factory and its successors made a lot of various Contract ammo in 7,9M88, 7,9S, 8x50R, 7x57, 7,65x53, etc. all for export, during the 1920s and 30s, before being absorbed in 1939 by the German War Machine.
I suppose the M88 was for Equador, but it could equally have been for China?? or Ethiopia, or one of the Balkan states, places where older M88 Commission rifles ( unaltered) were to be found.
Anybody come across years of M88 cartridges other than 1933/ ( any Maker) in the Post WW I period…???
