1912 STEYR HAHN, DATED 1914, SERIAL NUMBER 8291f

The 1912 Steyr Hahn was manufactured by Osterreichische Waffenfabrik at Steyr, Austria for the Austria-Hungary military from 1912 to 1919. It was called the hammer model to distinguish it from the hammerless Roth Steyr. It is serial numbered in blocks of 10,000 (from 1 to 10,000) with sequential alphabetic suffix. Approximately 300,000 were produced.

Thanks for the 9mm Steyr ammo photoes. You have an impressive collection of 9mm Steyr ammo. I have 2 boxes, the one shown and a FN box. I dont know enough to estimate the age of an undated box.
