    Yes but very limited.

    The Italien factory PB (Pirotecniko Bologna )produced in 1944 brass cases PB 1 M 44 and qrb M 1 44.I add some pictures.

    Also the German factory hla produced in the beginning of 1945 brass cases because the steel for the case production was sometime not to get.
    I add the known cases. hla St 24 43,hla St 15 44,hla S* 1 45, hla -St 2 45,hla -St 3 45.Only the hla S* 1 45 has the correct HS.
    For all other Hs they used the ST code from the other normal steel production.

    Great stuff Norbert - never seen the Italian PB marked Kurz before - interesting.

    I only have one box of actual ammo, and one ammo crate. the ammo had two labels on it, I steamed off the top one to reveal the other. The crate has seen better days but it's still here anyway.

    I have a few boxes -



    Keep them inside a crate -



    I collect the individual rounds - though haven't in a while as work has been insane.
    A part of my MP44 bits collection - I have another box of spare parts, but so far we have only replaced the wood stock.
    (Sorry to use this old photo - I know I have posted it before, but, time has been tight lately and haven't been able to take new pics)

    I don't really collect post-war MP44 items, but, yes, don't mind them occasionally.

    There are a few post-war 1001 marked German magazines there, too - the magazine collection is considerably larger since this photograph.

    The Post-war manual came with the wartime manual - it's actually quite collectable in it's own right.

    The Yugo pouches are a very valid part of the MP44's post-war history.

    I also have post war Sb-45 Czech ammo in the collection, too.
