Need help with blank fire for MG08 Maxim

Posted By: KentG

I am hoping to demonstrate firing of an MG08 at the Alvin York State Park in TN (his homeplace) in November. I have an original blank firing adapter, but gee whiz, there are no surplus ww1 8mm wooden bullet blanks available.

Anyone out there have tips/experience on setting up a no-gunsmithing blank firing on this 101 year old gun? 8mm blanks or I could run .308 blanks through a re-sizer to bring the case taper to match the 8mm.

The cup that screws on to the end of the barrel gives a lot of area for gas pressure to work on for the recoil action.

Atlantic wall makes blanks, and the MG34 blank firing setup seems similar - anyone using a MG34 with an original type BFA? What blanks are you using?
