PK drilled a small hole in the grip mount for a set screw. Snug the barrel up to the receiver and the set screw keeps it from backing out. Here's what it looks like in normal operating mode.

Here's the barrel off the receiver. Notice the small dimple in the threads.

Enjoyed the pictures. The set screw idea is a great way to go.

I get my blanks from Joe Swanson in Az. He makes 'em for the movies (SPR, Windtalkers). He gets custom made brass from Starline and its a little longer that stock .45ACP. The loaded blank is crimped on the end to assist in function.
I took it out the other day and ran a couple of hundred thru it. She runs like a Swiss watch.
Merry Christmas everyone!

“By any chance, do you mill a couple of flats on the last (shoulder) fin, to make the barrel more than finger tight before tightening the set screw?”
The barrels are carefully and closely fitted, they must be clean when being installed and the witness marks will align when the shoulder is abutted against the receiver face. The screw keeps them from turning out and no tools are necessary except the hex key for the screw.
PS I can’t see the photos either.

Tman next time you upload to Geocities to avoid these problems, change the file extensions from .gif, .jpg, or .bmp to .txt and upload and link them just like you did.

PK had my 28 for about 2 months. Being a volunteer at a local WWII museum, I got to examine all the TSMG's that they had and reread Frank's and Tracie's books. I collected or replaced most of the WH junk that came on it and left the rest up to the master. We talked on the phone and I explained what I was looking for and he did the rest.
Thanks for the hints regarding posting pics.
