Hi Marco and welcome to the modelgun forums!

The Hudson Thompson has, what we call a "gas bypass" built into it's barrel. This gas bypass, was designed to allow Hudson to make an "open" barrel instead of a closed one and stay legal. The trouble is, that these gas bypasses, is that the hot gasses and sparks that the caps create when they are fired cool way before they exit through these "gas bypasses"

In the older MGC (and others) modelguns they had straight through "open" barrels that did little to obstruct and therefore cool the sparks etc. before they exited the muzzle.

I am not sure what the answer is to making the muzzle blast /flame in your Hudson more impressive is.

Hello Marco,

I'd like to welcome you to this forum also!

I'm sure we've all been searching for a way to create more realistic Flame, sound and smoke effects from our model guns, look at tis link for some discussions

http://www.mp40modelguns.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?t=1318

Marushin 7mm caps will give good sparks when they ignite but you'll only probably see them in the ejection port. As Mark says, they won't reach the muzzle unfortunately.

It probably isn't a good idea to use more than the recommended number of caps per cartridge as the zinc alloys used to make bolts will break easily. The force created by too many caps could break your gun.

You might get a little more smoke if you give the detonator pin a very light spray with WD40 or maybe a Silicone Oil but go easy, too much will make it too wet and it might not even ignite!

This video could interest you:

Scroll down to Hudson Thompson M1A1

I don't think there's any way of increasing the noise levels of this type of model gun. To be honest it's probably a good thing as the relatively low noise levels means we can fire them indoors without frightening the neighbourhood
