While there are many reloading obstacles to overcome (such as a suitable slow burning powder) I especially need more info on what/how the original blow-out discs are created. I've read that they are a "frangible" material and some cut-away photos almost suggest that they are essentially pressed, heavy card-board covered by a weather-proof seal of some type. Can anyone shed some light on these mysterious discs? Thanks in advance.
    Hi Carlos,
    Sounds like a great project!! Can't help with info on blowout discs but would like to see some pics of your charlie G, before and after......
    Cheers

    Can only send the "before" pictures right now. Until the project is "blessed" with an approved Form 1 & a $200 tax stamp, I can't alter anything on the gun from the condition its in - which is fully de-milled by cutting a huge hole in the chamber & welding a bar in the bore. Seems I'm unable to images from here. Instead, I'll post a few links to current auctions (with pics) of these monsters. My gun is just like this one. The missing section of chamber is covered by the shoulder padding and is actually quite large.

    First the link:

    What fuze is on the illumination shell 2nd from the left?
