Following a posting on Gunboards (Mannlicher board) of a Steyr 1911 SA Sporting Rifle, in “Kal 9mm” I opined that it was for the FN & Browning developed FSA Browning 9mm (AKA .35 Remington Auto) as used in the Remington M8 selfloader of 1906.
Firstly, I know FN made the ammo and stripper clips for the M8 9mm,
Question, did K&C or G.Roth make this ammo also, for the European market, seeing that the example of the Steyr 1911-made commercial sporter looks much more than a simple prototype, but more like a production piece by the Commercial section of Steyr OEWG.
Anybody got cartridge examples or Catalogue references?
BTW, the rifle in question is a gas-trap ( muzzle capture) gas-operated turn-bolt-head rifle, with a 4 or 5 round internal box magazine, in classic “Mannlicher Sporting” carbine style ( full stock).
