All the Wisconsins I've seen have had Wico mags on them. They're an impulse type. Forage around your local scrapyard, they just might have an engin with such a mag.

The Wisconsin manual for the BKN lists the Fairbanks-Morse FM-XD1B7S.

There is an electrically screened option shown as well.

I've seen both on them and they actually appear almost identical even though they are different brand. I have a box of old mag pieces if you need something.

Please e-mail me if you have a spare fairbanks-morse cap (one-cylinder) for sale. I have plenty for my Wico's but always seem to be short on F-M.
