Never have, but might be worth a try.

They've been around for 32 years (since 81) and have a pretty good reputation in my neck of the woods.:thumb:

I don't know, a Google search says the two pistols are short stroke pistol an most with an aluminum frame..maybe the answer lies within?

What's the reason for the warning "NOTE: Must not be used in P1(P38 Walther Pistol caliber 9mm Luger"?
It is possibly submachine gun ammo, loaded hotter than the 9mm pistol loads. A few years ago I purchased a crate of Israeli 9mm that was labeled not for use in handguns, and found that it was for the Uzi and other 9mm sub-guns. Published warnings included not to fire it in the military Walther's, and most other older 9mm, including Lugars, some of the inexpensive Italian pistols, most Spanish Astras, and the zinc framed cheap 9mm pistols on the market.

It DID fire fine without problems in my +P rated 9mm pistols, such as my Ruger P89 and P93 pistols.

This looks to be military surplus ammo, which is generally considered to be +P or even +P+. The P1 and P38 have short little slides with little mass, and the P1 has an alloy frame. Probably won't stand up to the pounding.

Never used them. I've heard good and bad. I don't know about the ammo though.

I think I've avoid using this stuff in my PT92. Don't want a broken gun.
It'd probably be OK in a steel-framed gun, especially if it's a cheap steel-framed gun:), like a Chinese Tokarev or an Arcus 98DA. I wouldn't shoot it in a Hi-power.

I did have a couple of memorable malfunctions shooting Egyptian surplus in my PT-92. One case stuck in the chamber. Another shredded the cheesy plastic follower on an after-market mag. Never again.

This is correct.
Military surplus ammo.
Some is even steel case.
May be turkish, russian, or ???made.

Shot it in a Ruger Blackhawk and it has a punch for it's size.

Thanks, folks. I really appreciate the information received. I think I will pass on that deal. It is tempting, but the risks of the company and the +P ratings persuade me to look elsewhere.

Sounds like this would be the perfect ammo for the Hi-point 995 carbine.
