    I'm also looking for dummies that fit in the 8mm Bruni/Kimar colt .45 1911. Anybody know where to get those?

    I want to manually test the action of the gun and I don't really want to fire 8mm blanks. So the rounds don't have to fire but they do have to fit. I'm not sure if regular .45 replicas would fit and I don't have any to test it.

    Cheers !

    I just tried some empty 9mm Luger shells and they seem to be ok in diameter. Replica 9mm Lugers will do the job if you just want it to look real. However the guns action doesn't work with anything but the 8 mm blank rounds for which the system was designed.
