Type Classification

STD - MSR 04786005.

Use:

The M755 blank cartridge is especially designed for use with the Sting Ring Airfoil Munition System which consists of the M234 launcher and the 64mm riot control M743 projectile fired from the M1GA1 rifle.

Description:

BLANK Cartridge. The cartridge is only for use-with -the M234 riot control 64lmm projectile launcher. The launcher is attached to the flash suppressor of the M16A1 rifle and actuated by firing an M755 5.56Gmim blank cartridge. The M755 blank cartridge is the only cartridge that will give the projectile M743 the proper velocity. Use of other blank cartridges may damage the system.

The cartridge is loaded with 12 grains of Dupont Hi Skor 700X propellant closed with a seven petal nose crimp and moisture sealed. The crimped tips of the cartridge is painted with yellow lacquer for identification and thus lessen the chance of mixing them with the standard M16AI rifle blank cartridges.
