Here, whats this?

#1
For all those spotters of all things shiney and what not I have something that has puzzled me, I have no clue what on earth it is meant to be.

Was routing through the old kit cupboard and found this (see piccies) now i've had a butchers and it is the same size as a 5.56mm round, fits in a magazine but I cannot put my finger on what on earth it is meant to be.

EDIT:
I'm feeling generous so if someone comes up with a definate and correct answer to what this is i shall either donate £10 to Help4Heros or make a swish purchase from their online store :D

(Further edits in due course due to beer fingers)

I dont think so, the back of the round appears to have been struck by a firing pin and the base looks very much lik a .22 Rimfire round to me

the base would be filled with a thin layer of wax or plasticine and placed in the weapon. Its a armourers tool to check the functioning of the firing pin. It is also a gauge.

don't need a BFA
seem a very gucci answer to a problem not really needing an answer

silent blanks would confuse someone

not quite as fun as swapping the platoon commanders SA80 for an airsoft version :twisted:

forgive my ignorence but why? I thought the bullet traveling down the barrel and gasses etc cased the recocking? so wouldnt there need to be a projectile in this as well?

sorry if i sound like a tube, but cant get my head round that one

However, a form of blank has me satisfied, making my H4H purchase as soon as morning vision has gone away :D

when using those, the weapon doesn't cock using the gas parts.

it cocks using a blowback action. BFAs are only required if you want the weapon to cock using the gas parts.
