A friend of mine has an 03 with an original Pedersen Devise and I have had the privilege and honor to having fired it. It was a great experience to fire a rare piece of history.

If you visit the National Firearms Museum at the NRA HQ in Fairfax VA, over in the WW 1 display is a rifle with a Pedersen Device installed.
Was the ammo the same as the 30 Mauser??

If I remember correctly, it was a 7.65X20mm straight wall rimless cartridge. The U.S. designation was "Cartridge Caliber .30 Model of 1918", or ".30-18 Automatic". The cartridge had the same dimensions as the French 7.65X20mm.
