    Took some 9mm Luger in on a trade,with foriegn markings and case markings. Can't find anything on it. I figure if someone can ID it they would be here. Want to figure out where these cane from before I shoot them

    Will get some pictures of the case markings up in a few,it has a 9-69 stamp, a K stamp,and a stamp that looks like the Pi sign.but here's the box to start,maybe someone will recognize the language.

    israeli surplus ammo. Its +P+ pressures. Will your gun handle that?
    It was made for Uzi's submachineguns

    Are they silver tipped or blacktipped?

    The sigs should be able to handle them. But you might want to get a heavier recoil spring to reduce wear. And I wouldn't give them a steady diet of it. Do you have any friends who have a 9mm carbine to test them in?

    Anna is right about the Israeli part. That's definitely Hebrew. I don't know what it says though so I can't confirm anything else she said. By the way the picture is upside down.

    Well I only got a 100 rounds of them,they were kinda just lumped in on a much bigger trade. Would a high point carbine be rated for these? My dad has one I could test them out of.

    I was gonna say that it was upside down, but ignored that part. I would shoot them through a carbine first to make sure about them being hotter than normal. Then if your handgun throws the brass twice as far, i'd stop, but if they are only a few feet further I wouldn't worry about it. If your Sigs are rated for +P ammo, I wouldnt hesitate to use it, but with caution.

    Alright thanks Anna! This is why I made this thread. I'm definantly not gonna run them in the micro compact sig,but may try a mag in the full size for ****s and giggles if they don't prove to be way hot. Then give the rest to whoever has the carbine.

    Sorry about the picture being upside down,I'm just as Hebrew-illiterate when it's right side up though.

    Anna can you read Hebrew? If you can you went up a bunch of respect points to me, not that you weren't already in the Awesome part of the scale! ;)

    No worries. I'm Hebrew illiterate too. I just recognized that its upside down, because I know basically how the script looks. Also thought you might wanna know, for sh*ts and gigs.

    Try driving in their road systems :eek:


    definitely dont shoot it in the micro, but the full size if its rated for +p and check pressures on the primer, and if they are being thrown way farther out than your normal 9mms. the Carbine would handle the pressures better, but I have no idea about Hi points

    Depends on how you look at it. The scale goes from 0 - 10. 10 is the best. So with a -4, you could be proud or you could be pissed. Take your pick.
