Hooke, Yes, that yellowish or cream-color bullet cap appears to be part of the main picture of the report I have. The picture even included the P-64 Pistol. Looking at the enlargement, it still looks yellow, but may be a result of the lighting used to take the picture, or some contamination of the white color, although I see yellow inside the capsule too, where you can see a tiny sliver of the inside wall of the cap at the bottom. If contaminated color, I would think that would still show white.
Still, from every other bit of information I have gotten, regardless of the color of this one, this type apparently was produced with white plastic bullet caps. If there is any information to the contrary, I would like to know.
I still don’t know what the complete function of the later, 1984, type was supposed to be. The patent drawing seems to show a single round ball inside the cap. The patent description in the English language does little to really explain the cartridge, and the drawing less, since many of the numbered components are not explained, and the explanation for “7” explains things not shown on the drawing, it seems, so it is hard to know the complete functioning.
Do others believer it was a shot-filled bag, like the earlier round. I know that a “sachet” is a small bag, in english, usually contains perfumed powder ot ground fragrant-flower parts. I suppose that translation could apply to any totally-sewn shut bag containing about anything.
How does this differ from the first type with white bullet? Since the date is c.1984, was it supposed to be some sort of improvement that works better in the P-83 Pistol, the replacement for the P-64? The cartridge drawing in the patent is actually proportioned like a 9 x 19 mm Parabellum cartridge, not like a Makarov round.
Boy, with some of this stuff, the “devil is in the details”, the very small details it seems.
