  • 9x19

    IDnumber: 40

    This is a box of German produced 9x19 ammunition imported to Sweden in about1939-1941, together with the Walter P38 pistols that is designated Pistol m/39 in Sweden.

    IDnumber: 208

    This box is imported in early 1940 and is produced by Winchester in USA. The loads is "full patched" and that means that they are "hotter" loaded than usual and are only to be used in submachine guns.

    This box has probably had a glued on lable on top of the visible print on the box. The year 1942 is pre printed But the date and batch data is missing.
    This early box reads: 
    9mm live pistol cartridges m/39 
    Ammunition factory Marieberg /(19)42 
    Manufacturing day: [missing date]42

    This box is the same kind as above, but has a label on the box instead of the text printed directly on.
    It reads:
    9mm live pistol cartridges m/39
    Ammunition factory 31 (Svensk Tändsticks AB Jönköping.) /(19)42
    Manufacturing day 28 of May 42

    This blue labeled box 9x19 ammunition is containing 50 pcs of live ammunition of less good quality. The label says to use it for peace time shooting only. The box is of batch 1 in 1942 and is manufactured by Svenska metallverken.

    This is an imported box of 9x19 ammunition produced by Sako, Finland, in 1942. I can only guess that the box was imported to Sweden the same year.

    This is the third type of lable I found from 1942. It differs from the rest in al means and has a font and font size I have not seen later or before.
    It has ben produced 16th of October 1942 at the A.B. Svenska Metallverken. Västerås.

    This box might not be in such a nice condition, but scarce at it is, it is wonderful. It is a blue labeled box of 9x19 of lower quality production, a only for training, or only for peace time shooting. It is produced 19th of February 1942.

    This is a box for the m/39E ammunition. The m/39E has a steel case and has a shorter storage time than the normal ammunition. So this box has an extra text that states “Use before 1/10 1944.”
    So the storage capacity is put to about one year after manufacturing.

    Now we have moved forward to 1944, and the box has a image of the cartridge printed on the label.
    This box is manufactured in 22 of August, 1944 by Marieberg factory.

    This box of 9x19 m/39B is a odd one. As a standard, the ammunition were delivered in the boxes of 36 rounds on stripper clips. It is only the early test cartridges found in boxes of 50. This is a box for a standard m/39 round with the "B" added with s rubber stamp. The production were made at Karlsborgs ammunitions fabrik in 1961, a early year in this cartridges existence but still some years after introduction in around 1955.
