"Strange" 7.92x57mm Mauser round


#1

LIVE or FIRED 7.92x57mm Mauser round ?!? (the 3rd or 4th Mauser round of THIS “kind” I found…)


#2

Its czech Mauser zbrojovka Brno with heavy Bullet Z zbrojovka Brno. IV april 1938. If you are looking for some alive can try to get and take to germany meeting in septemper.

I would say that cartridge was a misfire which was discarded.

The primer shows an impression of a firing pin. However it does not appear to have been flattened by the pressures produced by firing.

The powder is most likely still in the case.


#5

Indeed…I would say the same (I don’t see another ‘option’…) . I’m curious if someone found a cartridge just like this…?!

So…bad ammo…?! As I said…it’s the 3-4th Mauser round of this “kind” I found in that zone… .

Is THIS cartridge “safe” or not now…?!?


#6

Bad firing pin strike and/or bad primer. It won’t go off from just handling it but treat it as a live round just in case.
