Thanks! The headstamp reads F 2 CP 48 , I think the ring around the primer is dark redWelcome to the best beltfed site on the web. You will have no problem selling the 8mm Lebel once you get enough posts assuming it is the black primer stuff? All the other Lebel is long since dead.
not too bad, 50 ish dollars and the transfer fee (this was before i had my ffl03 here in Ca, everyone else has to have ammo shipped to an FFL) Here is the posting, I would suggest others avoid this auction house. 7 x 54R ammo | Online Auctions | ProxibidYes but it is is certainly not the same as live round value. I hope you were not into to it too deep?
very nice example! I know Poland sent about 20,000 of those to the republic in Sept 1936 ona ship called the Azteca . The only other shipment was in August 1937 on the Al Racou. Most of the polish shipments were captured ww1 weapons in a huge variety of conditions and chamberings.Welcome aboard!
Since you mentioned an interest in Spanish Civil War guns can you give me any feedback on this rifle? I was told that it is a Polish Karabinek wz.29 that went to Spain in 1936 or 1937.
