Steyr 9mm

Hey to all, Have a good friend who bought a bunch of this ammo "by mistake". Anyway he wants me to try and sell it. Any idea what 500 rounds would be worth, "in 17rd stripper clips". Thanks for any assistance. Earnie

Strippers aren't of any real value to the deal except to the right guy. I assume this is 115-grain ball (FMJ). So it was a mistake; what does he have to get out of it?

9mm is and has been stupid. Many people would consider $.40/round a fair price for ball right now. Premium bullets & JHP's etc are 2-3x that. I bet at $200 someone would snap it up.

The 9mm Stayer is a hot 9x23 round and would need a purpose-built weapon, like the Steyr 1912 pistol or the MP34 submachine, both built to handle the round..

It is not interchangeable with the 9x19 Luger/parabellum

An Astra 400 should shoot it, if you can find some one who owns one.

The ammo may also be corrosive. I sold my Steyr to a pal of mine a while ago so I'm out of the market.

If you had an older non-safe queen S&W 27 or 28 you could get the cylinder throated & rebated for the 9x23. It would make a nice back-packing pistol.

I have an S&W 625-2 that I had converted to 45 ACP & full moon clips. Used a Ti cylinder and dropped 3oz.


Not an Xspurt, but you might be able to retrofit a K or J frame?

I have an early 1993 940 factory build in 9mm with full moon clips..

Just curious, do these tend to be made with rather hard primers, if you know?

As I said, not a spurt, but a lot of the chi-com & Rusky ammo used hard primers. If I remember,, most of their machine gun designs fired an open bolt and had bolts that were milled with the oversized firing pins milled into the bolt face. Cheep low-tech manufacturing, but those bolts pounded the ammo.
