Default Info Needed on 13.2mm TuF Round

Hello all,

I went to an auction today that had quite a bit of military items and managed to get this 13.2mm TuF round for next to nothing. I can not find anything online pertaining to the value of these rounds. I'm guessing that "18" on the base would mean that it was made in 1918, but all the other numbers are unknown to me. There also appears to be a script "P" on the bottom of the projectile itself. Can anyone help determine the value of this round and what the other numbers on the bottom stand for? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Here is an example (#2854) of the T-Gewehr type rifle that your cartridge was used in. This cartridge was also used in the very late-war "Tank und Flieger" ("TuF") machinegun being developed by the Germans. The T-Gewehr rifles are not hard to find within the collector community; as to the TuF machinegun, I think there is only one known example and it is located at a German military reference/technical collection in Coblenz, Germany. Actually, I'm not sure that any examples of the TuF machinegun exist; it may be that the technical collection in Germany only has some period photos of the TuF.

Anyway, nice find you have there.

What else was at the auction? Any other weapons-related items?

Thats gotta be funny gun to shoot.Wood stock without any buffer...Eww

I have tested 12.7mm modern Barret and that one has buffered barrel system which reduces recoil.But that Mauser...has NONE.

Gun for REAL shooters.

Dunno about buffers, but that one lacks a muzzle break - which can easily make a 40-60 % difference on recoil impulse (does just that on Barret).

First, I have modern color detailed pictures of a TUF gun that I think is in France. Sorry I can not post them but yes there is at least one example of the gun still out there! It would be an awesome gun to reproduce! Can you imagine the impact on the battlefield!

As far as the round, I don't know exactly what it is worth as I am more of a MG guy. However I would be interested in buying it as I would like to get more into the T-Gewehrs... email me a price phiteshe@vt.edu

I have two different model Tube style T-Gewehr bipods but T-Gewehr!

Thanks for the replies and info everyone! Alan, there was a lot of military, but nothing that I was really interested in. It was mostly Vietnam and later stuff.
