Product Description

Product Description

For safety training, function testing or safely decocking without damaging the firing pin, A-ZOOM training rounds are much more than conventional snap-caps. They are precision CNC machined from solid aluminum to precise cartridge dimensions, then hard anodized for ultra-smooth functioning and long life.

A-Zoom nine-millimeter Luger Snap Caps are ideal for training, storage, testing, and practice. Featuring hard anodized aluminum construction, they function like real ammunition, and are a useful tool when teaching safe gun handling. Five rounds per package.

About A-Zoom
Ideal for safety training, function testing, or safe de-cocking without damage to the firing pin, A-Zoom's patented line of precision metal snap caps were introduced in 2000 to meet the growing demand for high-quality training rounds for shooters, hunters, law enforcement professionals, and the military. Unlike traditional plastic snap caps, A-Zoom's are individually CNC-machined to precise cartridge dimensions from solid aluminum, then anodized with a hard coat finish that provides smooth function and long life.

Not much to say here: they're aluminum snap caps, they feed and cycle like live ammo, they're nearly indestructible. I like these over plastic snap caps very much. I couldn't tell you how many thousands of dry fires my snap caps have seen but they still work flawlessly.

The only negative comments I have are:

A) The red finish wears over time. Not a big deal, really. Just something to note.

2) Your weapon's steel extractor will (naturally) wear the aluminum case rim over time. Again, not a big deal, just dress the burrs with some 600 wet/dry sandpaper and carry on.

Buy lots to keep up your trigger press and weapon manipulation skills. They also work very well for mixing randomly in a magazine of live ammo to simulate a dead primer for tap/rack/bang drills. Highly useful!

I've tried the majority of snap caps on the market and A-zoom snap caps are the best. Their all-aluminum construction is nice, but only slightly better than the hard plastic that others snap caps offer. What makes the A-Zoom snap caps the best is the rubber primers they use. They will last forever. If all you do is cycle your weapon, then any snap caps will do. But if you are like me and you buy snap caps to dry fire with, then this design is the only way to go. Another popular brand uses a brass primer with a spring in front of it to "absorb" the energy. It seems like a good idea, but after 100 or so dry firings the brass primer eventually gets a big hole in it from the firing pin and soon the firing pin doesn't even contact the snap cap. This means those snap caps only protect the firing pin for 100 rounds and then function as dummy rounds. The A-Zoom snap caps have no such problems. Their rubber primers return to shape after hundreds of dry fire drills. The purple finish of the snap caps will rub off with continued use, exposing the silver aluminum below, (I wish they made it bright silver to begin with - they are easier to identify as snap caps) but this has no adverse effect on cycling. I have yet to see a better design, and although the competition often offers more snap caps per package, the A-Zoom's will never need replacing.

These enable you to dry fire your weapon without damaging the striker or firing pin in your gun. You can also use them to practice safely loading and unloading your gun.

But I think the most effective way to use these guys is at the range. Have a friend load one or two of these snapcaps into your magazine with other live ammunition. Then shoot through the magazine. When you pull the trigger, and nothing happens, you can see how you naturally react to shooting. Do you push down on the gun to compensate? Are you wincing? This is a great way to correct shooting errors.

These snap caps show very little wear after being cycled through my CZ-75 many times and dry-firing has produced no visible marks where the pin strikes. I expect it will be a very long time before they need replacing.

Very fine paint shavings from the snap cap finish begin to deposit inside barrel and feed ramp after a few weeks of dry firing. I don't recommend.

It's very simple....these snap caps deteriorate very quickly as the aluminum cannot hold up to the rigors of dry firing. The rim of the case gets ripped up by the extractor and after a while the top edge (of what would be case) mushrooms and gets caught up barrel ramp when attempting to chamber.

Practice trigger pull without hurting your gun. If you're wondering the best use is to load these and aim as if you were at the range, and focus on not moving the weapon at all. Also good for practicing misfires or jams. Have a friend (trusted) load a mag or two with one or two of these mixed in so when it stops firing you'll have to clear the weapon before putting more rounds down range.

Pictures are next to 9mm Hornady Luger rounds and the pistol is a 9mm S&W SW9VE.

I wish I saw this video review someone did on youtube before I bought these.
[...]
If the link doesn't work, search youtube for "snap caps best & worst"

I didn't even open the package, going to resell locally since it will cost me about 1/2 as much as they cost, to ship them back.

Went to MidwayUSA.com and bought the Tipton snap caps. I don't want to dig out aluminum shavings from my gun, as the above video shows these A-Zooms will do.
