Israeli 9x19mm questions


#1

I’m looking at a mixed lot of Israeli Surplus 9x19mm ammunition and noticed different primer styles. Some are brass and rounded or “dome” shaped and others are bright nickel colored with the same shape. They are not reloads. There are also different primer anullus colors. Is there any significance to the primer types or anullus colors?

Also, I’m told that Israeli 9x19mm tracer can be identified by projectile shape when the tip color is missing. Can anyone post a pic comparing ball to tracer projectile profiles?

Thanks!

I know of no significance to Israeli primer seal colors, and I have never noticed a profile difference between Israeli 9mm ball and tracer rounds.

I agree with Jon! I’ve not seen significance in Israeli pa colors and have not seen a difference in bullet shape between the common ball and the standard issue tracer.
