How would you go about firering 9mm blanks through a pistol
Like walty grenades, I seem to remember they take shotgun blanks as well. For "Mil-Sim" apparently, where airsofters load the correct amount of BB's in the magazine and think that makes it alright.BBear said:What do you want to use it for?
I know that you can buy 9 millis for blank use only, i don't know what theyve had done to them, but they work! I've seen them used in artsy fartsy stuff.

the blanks themselves were very poor and caused lots of stoppages. don't know if they are any better with the SIG.
Eh? I have used blanks with quite a few different types of SMG, and have never had any major problems. It's just a metter of fitting the BFA, or in some cases a replacement barrel, and off you go!OldAdam said:I got involved, very briefly, with a Sect 5 company that was involved with TV and film, supplying blank firing firearms and safety training for the actors.
Suffice to say that, to get a blow-back pistol or SMG, to work with blank you have to have virtually butcher the piece. The barrel has to have a restiction in the bore, usually a plug threaded in, with a gas relief hole. Locking lugs also have to be ground away or the thing simply will not function, even with the strongest blank available, believe me, I've tried!
