9mm Luger Ammunition

The 919 mm Parabellum is a rimless, tapered guns cartridge (also known as 9 mm Parabellum or 9 mm Luger).

Due to its low cost and abundant availability, Glock for sale, it is largely regarded the most popular handgun and submachine gun cartridge. It was invented by Austrian weapon designer Georg Luger in 1901. It is a standard NATO cartridge as well as a cartridge used in numerous non-NATO countries.

The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (SAAMI)[10] and the Commission Internationale Permanente pour l’Epreuve des Armes à Feu Portatives have awarded the cartridge the name of 9 mm Luger because it was intended for the Luger semi-automatic pistol (CIP)

According to a 2007 US poll, “about 60% of the guns in use by police are 9 mm [Parabellum],” and sales of 919 mm Parabellum pistols are to blame for semiautomatic pistols being more popular than revolvers.

In 1901, Austrian handgun designer Georg Luger created the cartridge. The round was adapted from a previous Luger round (7.65x21mm Parabellum), which was derived from a cartridge used in the Borchardt C-93 handgun (7.65x25mm Borchardt). Luger was able to enhance the design of the toggle lock and integrate a smaller, angled grip by shortening the length of the cartridge case used in the Borchardt handgun.

The Luger pistol, based on Luger’s development on the Borchardt design, was first patented in 1898 and chambered in 7.6521mm Parabellum. Luger developed the 919 mm Parabellum cartridge for the P08 handgun in response to German demand for a bigger caliber in their military sidearm. The bottleneck form of the 7.6521mm Parabellum case was removed, resulting in a tapered rimless cartridge encasing a bullet with a 9 mm diameter. Glock Center

Luger handed the new round to the British Small Arms Committee in 1902, as well as three prototype versions to the United States Army in mid-1903 for testing at Springfield Arsenal. In 1904, the Imperial German Navy adopted the cartridge, and the German Army followed suit in 1908. [7] In the 1910s, the bullet’s ogive was slightly altered to facilitate feeding.

During World War II in Germany, the lead core was replaced with an iron core covered in lead to save lead. The bullet was designated as the 08 mE (mit Eisenkern—”with an iron core”) and had a black bullet jacket. By 1944, the 08 mE bullet’s black jacket had been phased out, and these rounds were produced with standard copper-colored jackets. Another wartime variant was the 08 sE bullet,  Buy Glock, which was made by compressing iron powder at high temperatures into a solid substance and was distinguished by its dark gray jacket.
