Thanks,

Your cartridge was manufactured by Arms Corporation of the Philippines, specifically for the German firm of TRANSARMS Handelsgesellschaft. Unfortunately, I do not know the location of the firm in Germany. I have the box label for the .45 but it does not give a location for TRA. I believe the ammunition was made in the 1990s, perhaps as early as 1991. The lot number for my box is “MSH-01V-91K” and I think the “91K” may be the date.
