The Safe Blank Firing Attachment (SBFA) is designed for use with the in-service open prong flash hider (1005-01-565-2672) as fitted to the L119A1 (C8) assault rifle.
The SBFA has been designed to allow natural recoil of the rifle when firing blank ammunition. It has been successfully trialled using both the L1A1/A2 and C79A1 blank ammunition.
The key safety feature enables the system to safely ‘retain’ 3 live rounds when inadvertently fired on ‘automatic’.
The SBFA has been designed to allow the blank to make “noise” in order to assist in training and battlefield inoculation.
Designed following extensive consultation with operators and maintainers, the ISTEC SBFA is a fully supported product. The 2 part design with the removable bullet trap offers ease of cleaning and repair/replacement of sub components, without compromising on safety.
Extensively tested, the SBFA has successfully and safely retained 3 x L2A2 ball rounds, when on automatic.
Utilising a fine thread coupling, torque friction and a positive collar to retain the SBFA onto the flash hider, the whole assembly offers a safe and efficient training option for minimal increase in weapon profile and weight. The positive locking collar can only be removed by utilising the in-service combination tool from the universal cleaning kit, or any multi tool, thereby ensuring another level of retention security.
