The reason Carol changed to Burst Fire rather than one full mag' dump was due to Flame & Flash stretching out 3feet and licking the wallpaper ... her language got so bad I had to edit it out lol!

Hi Claymore,


I'm still in experimental stages but this last test was very similar to the loading method described here:-      
http://mp40modelguns.forumotion.net/t4582-muzzle-flash-experiments-mgc-sten-mkiii



  • Solid Det Pin but the vent holes through the retaining brass ring are as wide as possible
  • Japanese Prop Powder used rather than Magnesium
  • 2nd cap had the edges cut off rather than having the red charge disc prised away from the plastic body





I will follow up with photos asap Very Happy

I think many of us are interested in your experience and what the prop powder composition is.

Congratulations! cheers

Very Happy:D:D  Let's just say she wasn't as impressed as I was with the flash produced Rolling Eyes My God, she hasn't cussed like that for awhile!

I'm keen to find out exactly what the powder composition is. I will scan and post the information sheet on here in the hope one of our Japanese friends can translate and let us know, assuming the sheet says so obviously.
My guess is Magnesium certainly, but the flash seems much brighter so it's safe to assume there's another compound mixed in. Aluminium perhaps?
Best to err on the Safe side and assume nothing until we see a translation though just in case we mixed up an explosive by mistake What a Face What a Face No No

It looks like potassium perchlorate (white stuff) and super-fine aluminum powder (dark stuff) in all the videos I've watched on the 'Tube. Those are the most common ingredients used to make flash powder. I'm not sure what their mix is, though. The white stuff could also be barium peroxide... does it smell like eggs after you fire? Did anybody ever post a translation? I've been meaning to do some tests, but have been afraid of damaging my guns.

Thanks philb,

My MP38 isn't a Blank Firer . It's a Modelgun that fires cap charged, reuseable brass cartridges.
The method of firing is quite different to a Blank so a vent hole isn't required.
