    Unknown case 1896 M?

    I saw this one at a flea market.
    Does anyone know anything about it ?
    If I have understand correctly the marking on the case means that it is produced in 1896 by the manufacturer, “Marieberg Ammunitions fabrik.”


    Now it looks live and the paper has the following text TGP M/29S .C441. Can anyone here decipher this one ?


    Best regards

    How long is the casing?
    What is the case mouth and rim diameter?

    Embarrassed to say that I didn't measure it I thought it would be a easy search to find with the printed model numer.
    Will probably be back there in a week or two though

    Don't know if the pictures with side by side with the 40*46 case will be of any help.

    All the best

    Just got the dimensions from the seller. I guess that makes this a M/96 flare gun casing.
    Still unsure about the marking on the paper though.

    Length 95 mm
    Opening 25 mm
    Base 30 mm

    Probably 25,4x95R31 mm which makes it most likely a 1"Nordenfelt. Looks like Swedish manufacture, which was unknown to me until now.
    Ignorance is bliss.

    Yes it's indeed a Swedish manufacturer I got a better picture of case stamp - Stockholms Vapenfabrik

    Take a look at this other thread for some more in depth information. https://forum.cartridgecollectors.or...896-m/39862/13
    In short it is most probably a tear gas case. TGP could possibly translate to Tår Gas Patron
