"Interchangeability of Pistol Ammunition" from Tactical and Technical Trends

The following brief paragraph on the use of Italian pistol ammunition appeared in Tactical and Technical Trends, No. 22, April 8, 1943.

It is now known that ammunition of the 9-mm Italian pistol Model 910 (Glisenti) is interchangeable with all standard types of German Luger (Parabellum), pistol and submachine-gun ammunition. These Italian cartridges may be recognized by the bullet, shaped like a truncated cone. British 9-mm ammunition for the British Sten & Lanchester submachine gun will function in German and Italian 9-mm weapons that use the above ammunition.
