    I honestly can't remember lol.

But then when using them you have fit the blank fire adapter to the muzzle which primarily redirects the gas but is also capable of stopping at least one live round if accidentally fired. Hope this helps, Cheers. Sean.

    Thanks Guys.....nice to get first hand opinions, I was'nt intending to use these, just wondering if the markings on the blank firer mag was the only way of ensuring it was'nt used for live rounds but the plunger mod on the side must preclude this somehow,....anyway you have answered my questions and I thank you..........

    I just checked; live rounds can NOT be fed into the blank mag for safety reasons.

    The contraption on the yellow blank mag some term an 'inhibiter.'

    If I understand it correctly, the mag well rim of the rifle pushes down the yellow protrution on the mag thus in turn making a piece of metal push up at the lip section of the mag, making sure live rounds dont feed.

    But you already deduced this.

    Congrats on the mags. Some of the best around.
