Hello all,

Recently, my grandfather bought a used Walther P99s at a pawn shop. For those who do not know, this is a blank firing gun. My grandfather hosts chainsaw competitions at his home, and planned to use the pistol as a starting gun. After buying proper shells, he found that the gun would fire, but it would not load the next shell. Does anyone have any experience with these guns? I am thinking that it is a magazine issue, but I cannot find any wear on the magazine. Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you in advance.

Unless their is a blank adapter or the pistol has been modified blanks will not cycle(there isn't enough energy in those loads). In the movies the blank firing gun vent out less gas cycling the action. Thats why most starter pistols are revolver style.

From AIRGUN DEPOT.com website;

[The] Walther P99 S blank firing gun is a pistol just like the real firearm, except that it can not fire live rounds, it fires blank cartridges. The P99 S blank firing pistol is a double- or single-action semi-automatic pistol that functions in every way as the P99 firearm. The P99S fires 9 mm PAK blank cartridges. The magazine accepts 15-rounds and the slide cycles and casings eject just like the P99 pistol. The barrel is permanently plugged and the hot gases from a fired cartridge escape out of a vent in the top of the pistol. The P99 S by Walther is great pistol to use in practice for holstering and firing or as a dog training gun or collector gun. It can also be used in theatrics and is a great way for new shooters to get accustomed to gun handling and the sound of firing ammunition.
