Article number: CAP20
Firing on an empty chamber can result in damage to a firing pin. Using Snap Caps in empty chambers allows for the safe release of the firing pin, or "dry fire". The caps also serve to relieve pressure on the firing pin spring when chamber is closed and the trigger is pulled. Made from solid aluminum and brass spring loaded primer to absorb the force of the firing pin and prevent damage, the caps are color coded and stamped with the appropriate gage.
