Occasionally I find a vendor whom I just have to rave about! Atlantic Wall Blanks (http://www.atlanticwallblanks.com/) is one of those!! ;D
I have reenacted WWI since 1990 and in that time I have tried NUMEROUS types of blanks. NONE of them have ever worked very well for me until this weekend! I got some of Robb's 8mm full length blanks and it made using that rifle fun -- in the 17 years I've owned my Gewehr 98, it has NEVER worked this well. Customer for life!!
I truly mean it -- the action was like glass -- this from a rifle I've sometimes had to HAMMER on the bolt to close. ;-( During one attack this weekend, I fired so many rounds, so quickly that I burned my hand on my rifle... I've never had that with a bolt-action. It made shooting the gun a pleasure :) Outstanding work Robb!
Any of you who need blanks for reenacting, give Atlantic Wall Blanks (http://www.atlanticwallblanks.com/) a try -- you will NOT be disappointed.
