I have a blank firing unit for sale. £400.

BTW, you can't have both recoil and blank firer.

Exactly what Adrian says.
Dangerous and illegal.

Just a question: why is it illegal to use a blank firer together with recoil, when the blank firer alone is legal?

I presume because it means the barrel is not fixed in the tank, so under exceptional circumstances it may become a projectile.

I was not previously aware that it would be illegal.
However when I purchased a recoil kit from Armortek, I did have to sign and return a disclaimer form that I would not fit the recoil and blank-firer at the same time, and if I ever sold the model with both options, I had to get the purchaser to sign and submit a copy of the disclaimer.

Hi guys,

thanks for the replies. Indeed, the barrel might become a projectile when not fixed good enough.... :idea:
kind regards
