Good stuff indeed! Similar to the info from the machine gunners handbook.

Thanks , Chris

Interesting that they'd be issued a blank firing adapter. I guess to practice? But I don't see anything about the cartridge guides needed to run blanks.

I love this stuff. Thanks for posting!

The early US blanks had white "bullets" that appear to be some kind of waxed paper projectile that the BFA was actually designed to shred the round similar in nature to the German wooden blanks. I have a live one buried in my pile o stuff. Ill see about trying to dig it out. One thing I find odd is trying to fjnd the early WW2 BFA. I refer to them as beer barrel BFA because of the shape but have yet to see one outside of period pictures.
