The 9mm Glisenti is an Italian pistol and submachine gun cartridge.
9mm Glisenti Wikipedia
The 9mm Glisenti was developed for the Italian Glisenti Model 1910 pistol, first used in World War I. It was also used in other Italian weapons such as the Beretta Model 1915 and 1923 pistols, the OVP and Beretta Model 1918 submachine guns, and the Villar-Perosa aircraft submachine gun. The Medusa M47 revolver can also fire 9mm Glisenti ammunition along with many other .38, .357 Magnum or 9 mm cartridges.
The cartridge was based on the German 9×19mm Parabellum, but is significantly less powerful, as it is also meant to be used in blowback pistols, which are easier and less expensive to manufacture than locked breech firearms.
The cartridge is now obsolete, but Fiocchi Munizioni occasionally produces batches.
