Greetings,

Ammunition foir this piece is problematic. You can find small lots from French commercial manufacturers on occassion, but for the most part, this is a reloading proposition. Brass can be gotten from Buffalo Arms Co. Dies are expensive, though you could probably get away with using a .32 Auto die and just resize the brass as far as it will go into the die.

Gun shows are the best place to look for the surplus ammo, but the military stuff is mostly unrealiable as far as the primers popping. Much of the stuff I have gotten is faulty from long storage in unfriendly environments. Good luck.

New commercial ammunition (7.65mm long round, aka 7.65 French long, 7.65 MAS, 7.65x20, 7.65L, .30-18, .30 Pedersen, .30 Pedersen long) for this family of pistols (ie, 1935-A, 1935-S, 1935-S M1) is available, but expensive, usually running about $.75 - $1 per round, although occasionally a bit less expensive (about $.60/round at Gad, for example). Hence the interest in reloading.

A few sites currently selling this ammunition:

http://www.buffaloarms.com/browse.cfm/4,4228.html
http://gadcustomcartridges.com/#pistol
http://www.starsandstripesammo.com/military_pistol_ammo.html

Sometimes this ammo will not appear in the regular lists, but under a heading such as "obsolete handgun" or "military handgun."

Not sure of the exact model, but my (ex) FIL had a vintage .30 cal French pistol & wanted some fresh ammo for it. I was able to turn down some .30 carbine brass, trim to length, and resize it with 30 carbine dies. Plinked a bit with it & it was great fun to shoot. Got divorced & the FIL got his gun back along with a bunch of ammo. I never did get the dies back to him & suspect they are still somewhere in the back of a cabinet out in the shop.
