The 7.92x33 Kurz round an early assault rifle round developed for the German WW2 Sturmgewehr 44 (StG44) which was the forerunner of modern assault rifles. Signature features included an automatic self-loading capability and detachable, large capacity magazine. This replicated the automatic actions and large, detachable magazine capacities of the Thompson and Schmeisser sub machine guns. The innovative round was therefore a compromise between the high power of the standard infantry issue Mauser 7.92x57 round and the 9mmx19 Parabellum round used in the Schmeisser MP40 sub machine gun. In order to reduce recoil, the bullet head was significantly lighter, and the cartridge capacity was reduced by shortening the case by 24mm. The result was a rifle with an effective range much greater than the MP40 that could still deliver a rate of fire comparable to a full squad machine gun such as the FG42. The round was also much lighter than the 7.92x57 round, so a soldier would be able to carry far more ammunition and deliver more suppressive fire. The detachable magazine had a distinctly curved shape in order to increase the capacity and reduce the need for reloading during assault manoeuvres. These rounds feature a brass case and copper FMJ bullet head. Price is for ONE round only.
