The best blanks

Postby tommyargue on Sun May 03, 2009 9:42 pm


Like most of you doing ww2 re enactment, I'm stuck to using 8mm blanks. Depending on the blank firer your using, the quality and efficiency differs a bit. I've found the best of these to be the Italian "fiochi" brand. I've never had a miss fire from them at all and the other german brands like umerax and wadie seem to be a bit too powerful and have damaged 2 guns on my so far. The "wadie" are very bad for misfires, my local dealer was out of fiochi so I tried the wadie the 1st 3 out of the box misfired.

If any of you have som more info on this to share I'd love to hear about it.
