I picked up a Erma DSM and I was wondering what ammo it was made to shoot?
Long, short, what?

Thanks, I normally abstain from shooting my collectable rifles but I may make an exception for this one.
Recoil lug set-back danger is pretty low!

I second the recommendation for .22 Long Rifle in STANDARD VELOCITY. Not that the gun is not safe with High Velocity.

Standard Velocity most closely replicates the speed of the period ammo the sights are calibrated for.

You will want to use a 6 o'clock hold sight picture.

I have shot a lot of them as as long as you properly clean it it will not depreciate the gun.

Were it the seldom encountered DEAD MINT example might be another story. Those are nearly un-heard of though.

Nice piece. ENJOY!!

Good Collecting!!!!!!!!!
