The 9M38 lacquered steel case ammunition exist. Known specimens are made by GFL with 43-45 dates. These are quite rare and expensive if you can find one for sale. There is also a 41 dated GFL round with a plain or plated steel case-the only known specimen in the Woodin Lab and a qrb headstamped steel case has reportedly been found in Italy. These last two specimens are basically unique.

Cheers,

Lew
