    Question Looking for Blank Firing .22 Starter Pistol

    I am looking for a .22 starter pistol (revolver) that fires blanks, for a stage production that I am involved in. Unfortunately, in NY State, I cannot let the actors handle or use my real .22, even with blanks. That's probably a good thing though.

    Someone recommended the Precise 880 .22 Caliber Starter Gun. Does anyone on the forum have any experience with this type of gun? Do they hold up well (no pun intended)? Reliable? Reputable?

    Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Thanks all!

    You'll want to get something that will ONLY fire blanks. That ensures that nothing exits the barrel, because even a small projectile could be dangerous. If I were you, I'd go to some reputable gunsmiths and see if one of them could convert a cheap .22 revolver to a blank gun. I would definitely go with a revolver, since blanks are 100x messier than normal cartridges. An auto pistol wouldn't function for very long.

    I am not familiar with the revolver you are asking about but here is a source for realistic blank firing revolvers although somewhat pricey.

    Oops did find a .22.
