38 Short Rim-Fire
The 38 short and long rimfire cartridges were introduced near the end or shortly after
the Civil War in 1865 due to the demand for smaller caliber rifles and revolvers.
Both the 38 short and long cartridges were very popular until the advent of centerfire
cartridges toward the end of the 1800's.
Now long obsolete since the early 1940s - over 70 odd years ago....

Below please find 7 versions of the 38 short rimfire cartridges.
Due to the age of these cartridges, they will have some spots on the cases and some lead
oxide on on the projectiles. This normally cleans up for display with a little paint thinner.
These cartridges may fire well in your firearm; however, we sell these cartridges for
display only and cannot guarentee they will fire in your firearm.
