    1905 Steyr Mannlicher pistol ammo

    Does anyone have a sample of the 7.63x21 cartridge for the 1905 pistol? Its a straight case of .331 or so diameter, the rim might be a couple thousandths smaller.

    I might have one, I might even have a box of them. I'll check tomorrow. I used to own one of those pistols, but sold it years ago.

    Great, did the ammo come on stripper clips in the original issue or loose? would your box be suitable for a display? My friend has a veery nice wall case of Greek arms that go WAY back.

    I have no knowledge of the Greeks using the M1905 Mannlicher pistol, but it may well be so. They were used by Austria, Argentina, and Spain (who made poor copies). My pistol and ammo were Argentine. The ammo came 50 to a box, the usual way of packing alternating one up and one down, with no stripper clips, made by FM in Argentina. I did have a couple of strippers, but they probably (not certain) went with the pistol. I'll see what I can find, if you're still interested, since it's not Greek.

    My box of vintage 9mm Steyr ammo did not have a stripper clip included. But I found that a 5.56 Nato stripper clip fits just fine.
