What Are Snap Caps?
are simulated ammunition used to safely dry
fire a firearm. They contain no primer, powder or
projectile and usually contain a spring operated false primer
for absorbing the firing pin impact force. Some of the older centerfire guns as well as rimfire weapons should not be test
fired with and empty chamber as this may lead to damage to the
firing pin or other components of the gun. Snap caps are used to
prevent this damage. They are also useful as a training
tool for loading and unloading drills as well as training for
jams, misfires and other problems.
