HMM, MGC rounds in the Hudson Greasegun. I take it that you mean the "real size" .45 MGC rounds not the Thompson rounds?
Hiya Mark,

I've been using the same rounds with the o-ring and undrilled piston in both my MGC Thompsons and my Hudson Grease Gun...
As I remember, although my first MGC tommy had it's rounds in 'Hudson' boxes, they definately had the undrilled piston.
I bought several .45ACP rounds from Francky, all came with the same internals as the ones I had.
My new Hudson Grease Gun arrived with 6 x rds in a box but as soon as I spotted the drilled piston I didn't even try them. (As a result of the poor performance reports listed on here).
I automatically used my stock of .45's as used in the Thompson and I've had no problems at all.
Your message suggests that the rounds differ dimensionally?
Is this the case? Should I only use Hudson rds (with MGC internals) in my Grease Gun?

Actually, I just was trying to determine which MGC rounds that you where using. I can't see any problem with using the MGC (or any modelgun rounds) that feed, fit and work in the Hudson greasegun...As the pressures and other real gun ammunition interchange problems don't clearly apply to modelguns other than detonator size, magazines etc.

Hiya Mark,

That's a relief! I was getting worried that I was using the wrong rounds and destroying my gun without realising it!
My Hudson M3A1 works really well with the MGC .45's in it. I'm waiting for the delivery man to bring my magnesium powder (today I hope!) to try for a little muzzle flash with it...
I know it's been said before many times but this is one excellent working model gun, for such a simple thing. Maybe that's why, the simpler the better!

The MGC .45 Thompson cartridges can be used, I would think due to their size, shape and their length being close to the Hudson originals. Now, that being said, just be sure to look at the plastic chamber area to ensure that it isn't wearing unusually. If the chamber/detonator appears good check the bolt face for any unusual wear too.

There shouldn't be any problems with usuing the MGC cartridges (other than wearing them out for the Thompsons use!)
