View Full Version : WTS: Mil. Surplus 9mm, cheap, SF East Bay
06-23-2007, 7:32 PM
I have a couple cases of Egyptian 9mm, 4500 rounds per wooden case in 36 round boxes, sealed in metal tins. Iím told this was subgun ammo and has hard primers. It does misfire occasionally in some (most?) handguns (although a second strike by the hammer almost always sets it off) but works flawlessly in my H&K carbine. This is brass case FMJ ammo. $360/case (4500 rounds), pick up only in East Bay (CC County).

Sorry just read it says pick up only. But I am sure everyone else will still want to know if it is corrosive, how much it weighs (around 122gr), and when it was made.

I don't know the exact weight but I would guess 123 or 124 gr. I don't think it's corrosive. I'll post some pictures later today. I don't know how I would ship it, but I'll look into it. Anyone on here have experience shipping ammo? It's too heavy to go UPS or FedEx, would have to go by common carrier or maybe we could find someone traveling between our areas (I think you are in So. Cal?) who would haul it for a fee.

I should add that I also have some 7.62x51 (.308) and some 7.62x39 (Keng's match) that I'll be putting on here later today when I get the pictures shrunk down to a size I can post.
06-24-2007, 2:07 PM
interested on the 308, but need more info...
06-25-2007, 10:23 AM
Sorry about the delay. Having trouble reducing the picture size. Here's the 9mm, the 7.62x39 & 7.62x51 will follow shortly.

Hereís the 7.62x39. I havenít figured out how to make the pictures appear in with the text so just click on the attached files to view them. This was called Kengís Match when I bought it. Itís on 10-round stripper clips, 3 clips (30 rounds) wrapped together in heavy brown paper and sealed in 550-round ďsardine cans,Ē two cans per wooden case. The projectiles are 123 gr. boat tail FMJ. The cases are either copper washed or green lacquered steel (see pictures). There doesnít appear to be any way to tell which type until the cans are opened. This stuff shoots great. Iíve never had a misfire and Iíve shot up over two cases of both types. Iíve sold many cases of it and everyone has liked it. Price is $190 per case (1100 rounds) or $100 per tin (550 rounds).

Hope all is well. I picked up some of the Kengs 7.62x39 from you back in August 2005. Would like to get some more.
I have cash or if your interested partial trade for some ammo I have.
Please contact me at Steyr_223@yahoo.com.

Hereís the 7.62x51. Iím told this is from India (OFV headstamp). Itís packed in 10-round boxes, 28 boxes (280 rounds) per ammo can, four cans per steel ďcrate.Ē The projectiles are 147 gr. boat tail FMJ. The brass cases are Boxer primed and reload well. Iíve shot a lot of this and itís quite accurate in my Ruger 77. Iíve experienced an occasional misfire, but not many, and it goes off it you hit the primer again. Iíve never used this in an M1-A but it was probably made for this or a similar gun so it should work fine. If you have a problem with it Iíll buy it back from you. Price is $50 per can (280 rounds) or $175 per metal ďcrateĒ (1120 rounds).

Is that 7.62x39 corrosive? Anyone know if that 9mm is corrosive? Would really help me out on the buy / pass question, thanks!
06-25-2007, 1:33 PM
I've always assumed that the Keng's 7.62x39 is corrosive and clean my guns accordingly. If someone knows differently, pleas let us know. I don't think the 9mm is, but I pretty much clean everything after I'm done shooting so I've never noticed any corrosive effects from any of my ammo. Anyone know a good way to tell, short of shooting, not cleaning and watching for corrosion to form? I know how to check for corrosive primers, but I wonder if you could burn some powder on bare steel and watch that? Anyone tried it?

Here’s the 7.62x51. I’m told this is from India (OFV headstamp). It’s packed in 10-round boxes, 28 boxes (280 rounds) per ammo can, four cans per steel “crate.” The projectiles are 147 gr. boat tail FMJ. The brass cases are Boxer primed and reload well. I’ve shot a lot of this and it’s quite accurate in my Ruger 77. I’ve experienced an occasional misfire, but not many, and it goes off it you hit the primer again. I’ve never used this in an M1-A but it was probably made for this or a similar gun so it should work fine. If you have a problem with it I’ll buy it back from you. Price is $50 per can (280 rounds) or $175 per metal “crate” (1120 rounds).
I will take at least one metal crate for 175, two if possible. PM coming

Interested in case of 7.62x39. PM sent
06-25-2007, 11:57 PM
PM SENT. I will take one (or two if available) crate(s) of the 7.62x51 for $175.00. I will be in the Bay Area a little later this week.
06-26-2007, 7:28 AM
It's going fast but I'm sure there is at least one case remaining. I'm going to my storage facility today and will do an exact count. I will hold two for you if I've got them. The 7.62x39 is moving the fastest, followed by the .308... where are all the 9mm shooters?
06-26-2007, 8:03 PM
Thanks for all the interest, guys. Guess I priced it too low;-) Basically, everything is spoken for. I do have a "waiting list" in case anyone changes their mind, but I wouldn't be too hopeful. I will start a new thread next week if there are any leftovers. This is a great list and I've already met some real nice folks as a result of these sales. Just one question... I understand the Keng's Match and similar stuff (7.62x39 ChiCom) can no longer be imported, but the Russian and other eastern EU stuff can. What's the deal with that? It's OK for Wal-Mart to import everything in the world from the ChiComs, but not the firearms industry? Or is there something else involved? Anyone know what's going on?

Here is the reason for the ban on Chinese 7.62x39..
Then in 2003, the Bush administration started a 2 year ban on Norinco imports (mostly cheap knockoffs of American shotguns) for the Chinese trading weapons technology with Iran
07-12-2007, 1:28 PM
Turns out I still have one case of the 9mm available. All the other stuff is gone, sorry. This is a case of 4500 rounds in 36-round "cardboard" boxes for $360 (see picture earlier in thread or e-mail me for more pictures). As stated previously, it was sold as sub-gun ammo and as such has hard primers. I've never had a problem with it in a carbine but you will probably experience misfires in most pistols. I've used it in the Glock 17, Beretta 92F, Browning High Power and Walther P38 with varing degrees of misfires but it almost always goes off on the second hit. I've heard that the Springfield XD is not a good match so you might think twice if that's what you have (or try a box first... it may be a problem with a particular gun). Best bet is to call me at 925-944-1420 if you are interested in this case. As this is not a sealed case (the giant "sardine can" has been opened) I will consider splitting it in half for $180 per half-case.
07-13-2007, 12:17 PM
OK, half case is spoken for, still a half case left. Can be split into two quarter cases if desired. A full case is 4500 rounds in 125 boxes of 36 rounds each, $360. Half case is 62 boxes (2232 rounds) for $180 and quarter case is 31 boxes (1116 rounds) for $90. Pick up options are Walnut Creek, Tracy or Hayward. Thanks - JC (925-944-1420)
07-13-2007, 1:49 PM
I am in P-hill
i`ll take a quarter case for $90.00:D
07-13-2007, 2:51 PM
It's all spoken for. You can leave your name and phone number in PM (or call me at 925-944-1420) and I'll call you if someone changes their mind.
Thanks again - JC
