    This box is labeled "With enhanced loading". I do not know what that means. Do you?

    The box is also marked "9mm Live pistol cartridges m/94" but it is a m/07 box and cartridges. I suspect this to be a low volume manufacture and that the "m/94" to be a misprint that has not been corrected.

    This box is from Arne Thell:s collection and has been published in SARA:s publication Bulletin, where it has been scanned for me by my good source Morten Støen.

    This box has the additional text "May only be used for pistol m/07 and submachine gun m/37". In this time the 9x19 cartridge was introduced (1939) and maybe they thought a reminder about the difference was in place.

    Civilian box...


    IDnumber: 254


    This box from the 1937 produced in the Mariberg factory has a extra stamp on the lid saying "Småfelsptr". Spelled out it says "Småfelspatroner", Cartridges with minor errors. In the production check they are found not to be perfect, but usable. If they were produced in the 1940th they would probably of been called "Endast för fredsskjutning", only for peace time training, E.g, not for war.

    This plastic wrapped box of 9x20 ammunition is a so called MOB box, a box for the home guard to be kept at home. In case of emergency, the box can be broken and used, but only on the command of a officer. It is impossible to see the year of manufacture, but it is probably from the 70th.

    This is a early box of 9x20 ammunition from pre-own incountry production that seems to of started around 1910-1911. The box from 1908 is containing 28 cartridges and is produced by Fabrique Nationale d'Armes de Guerrero. The bottoms of the cartridges is F N 08

    This box of 9x20 is basically not different from the others of 1912-13, but I do love the change of the year (from 1912 to 1913) of the box, done by hand with a pen.

    Swedish produced ammunition is generally of a top notch quality. I believe it is strange to release ammunition with errors. This box is stamped with a comment "Lösa kulor", best translated as "projectiles is loose". Maybe the projectiles is fixated well enough for training purposes, but it would still create a uneven pressure giving a even larger spread when fired. The ammunition is produced by the Marieberg factory in 1941.
