I recently bought an old Winchester Model 1903 from an old fella. He also gave me a box and a half of the ".22 Win Auto" rimfire ammo for it. While I was at his place he dug out this old "original" ammo box and asked me if I wanted it for my collection as well. He couldn't remember where he got it from or when. It contained 15 live rounds of 7 MM Pin-Fire ammunition. Would anyone happen to know the value, availability and or apx age of this stuff? When did they quit making it?

Any info would be greatly appreciated,
CDW

A friend gave me a 7mm pinfire years ago with an ELEY headstamp. Case length is .55" and OAL .875" with a lead round-nosed bullet. It was chambered for a Lechafaux (sp?) revolver his father took off a German officer in WW I. About all I remember about the revolver is that it was quite small and had a folding trigger and no guard.

Bye

I've seen the 7mm sell for anything from $0.50 to $6 a round depending on condition. I'm sure there are some headstamped versions of greater value than others, but I'm not terribly familiar with - nor interested in - European cartridges. If yours are in good condition, you should be able to get $30 to $60 for them.
