I am the armourer for our Legion's M1s. I've replaced all the action springs over the past 5 years and keep them cleaned and lubed.
Some time back I got a publication announcing the new and better hole size in the blank insert.
This is supposed to cure the problem of the 3rd shell jam. This has not really cured the problem..
Misfires and jams with blanks seem to plague everyone that I talk to from other firing squads..
I suspect quite a bit of the problem is the blank ammo but can't prove it.
Ok my question:
I want to replace all the blank plugs on the end of the barrel- where is the best place to get them?
