    Has anyone had enough nerve to fire a Yugo SKS, with a US WWII training grenade and a 7.62X39 blank cartridge. The inert rifle grenade looks new and it fits the Yugo launcher perfectly. I'm sort of afraid it'll blow my SKS into smithereens, if I shoot the combination. I've heard that smithereens isn't cool, though.

    If you do, be sure to flip the gas cutoff. I doubt you'll have any problems with the gun itself. Like all Yugo's, they're very well built.

    I'm afraid it won't matter, if it has a gas cut-off or not, after I did that. I'm still undecided.

    I've seen it done. If you don't use an actual grenade launching blank, the results will be less than spectacular.

    I have done it. I flipped the gas lever and used a blank. The dummy grenade went about 80yrds. It was pretty fun...

    DLL9mm, I hope you're not just pulling my finger.

    The blanks, that I have, are in a clear plastic container with a brown paper cover to close it up. The clear plastic front has the following, embossed in it:
    10 Stuck
    M 43
    Platz-P
    -1-
    There are 10, in the package so I reckon that makes them Stuck(s)? I don't even know what language that is. Thanks for the help.:snoopy:
