Abstract : A machine gun barrel for firing blanks comprising a reclaimed quick disconnect barrel with a one piece blank firing attachment with diminished orifice replacing the flash suppressor and threadedly mounted over the barrel end provides gas build-up necessary for gun operation without leakage. Accidental live round firing causes forward, not lateral, fragmentation of the attachment because of its conical bore configuration. (Author)
