I recall one episode where Vic was pinned underneath a wooden beam, and had to shoot out a German radio on a table. The gun jammed; he gave it the old sharp flick to the right and the bad blank flew outta there; he shot again and it worked. Funny they left that one in. I remember seeing him struggle with the actuator more than a few times over the years.
And yes, he told Rick Jason (when Rick wanted Vic to come with him to shoot skeet after filming one day) "Naw, I can't stand killing clay".

going to make it a Sgt. Saunders Shoot. Everything shot from the hip and only
one extra magazine tucked inside the shooters jacket.

Seriously... speaking of that.. I noticed in the DVD and also in that pic.. that mag looks awful fat. It seems to be flush with the sides of the receiver...and a regular XXX mag doesn't do that.

It is a regular thirty round magazine. I have several other pictures and angles from this photo shoot sequence and the magazine is a normal XXX. It is probably just the lighting and angle of the photo I posted. The rib on the back wouldn't fit into the slot in the grip frame and the magazine wouldn't feed right if the dimensions were different from the original magazines. I also have several of the Stembridge blanks that they used in movies and television during that time period. They fit in the regular magazines just fine.
I'll post some additional pictures when I get time.
