Didn't know that thanks for the warning. :D

Of course, I don´t know if they do that directly, but that they sell repainted items that´s for sure. And the stamp with eagle on that M24 can is not original.

Some ammo from my collection.

Nice rounds, have you found them by yourself?

Hi Miguel,

No I bought them many years back. I have some British ammo that I have dug up over the years and I can post some pics at some stage if you want?

Yes, please you can post all the photos you want.

Hi Miguel,

I'll do that, but it might be a few days before I get chance to take some pictures. :thumbup:

Hi Erich:

Nice box, but I believe from the boxes I had in the past and I still have today that the rounds originally came with the primer up, not with the bullet.

A.J. interesting isn't it but it was all sealed before I opened it up and this is how they are stored in 1944 (all original), I believe though out of safety concerns you would be right and ammo tip downward. I do not dare take WW 2 ammo and fire it through a WW 2 pistol......too many accidental, one of which I have witnessed at our local range.

A.J.

the pistol jammed then recoiled into the owner's face, the round misfired and blew up. this is typical of ww2 ammo in ww2 weapons, NEVER fire WW 2 ammo, this is an unwritten law in the US hopeful it would be known worldwide. I've never ever fired original K98 or Gew 41/43 ammo ever. nor do I put anything of that age in my 7.62 Beholla pistol. all new and clean and in fact I do my own reloading..............

A.J. please note the two colored rings green and dark winbe red which is coming off and fading indicating we have a 2cm self-destroying round/fuze and shell with tracer.
