Product Description

For safety training, function testing or safely decoking 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.

These snap caps are very durable and non-corrosive. I've had no jams, double-feeds or otherwise, using these snap rounds.

For all those who are unfamiliar with these, they are basically fake rounds that have no firing capabilities whatsoever. They do not cycle your weapons' semi-auto action because their is no primer, gunpowder, or gaseous device involved.

Their main purpose are for use as a training aid (to see if proper trigger pull is excercised) and to safely demonstrate the weapons' actions without the risk of a negligent discharge.

Relatively expensive for only 2 rounds, but very worthwhile in the longrun.

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!

A little more expensive than I would have liked for a training tool, but these dummy rounds make cycle/misfire/jam drills a lot easier. I can tell that there are a bit of the red shavings at the throat of the barrel, so there is obviously some sheering happening, so I'm not sure how often I'll get to use these, but otherwise they are a fine addition to training. Best of all dry firing with these won't harm your firing pin as some other dummy rounds might.

An older set of these work perfectly in my Savage. Those caps are well worn, but faithfully feed and eject without issue. The most recent pair, however, fails to eject because the case rim was cut too small during manufacture. This results in the snap cap popping free of the extractor and rattling around in the receiver, rather than ejecting. Savage uses a floating extractor, which I replaced to no effect. The old extractor functioned without fail using brass and the old caps. My new extractor does also functions just fine with both. Neither extractor would operate with this latest pair of snap caps. Checking the cap's head found the rim visibly smaller than any brass case I have. A-Zoom obviously has a QC issue in need of sorting.

I won't be buying A-Zoom caps in the future.

For those that have semi-auto firearms that hold the bolt open on the last shot, I may have found the reason why these Snap Caps eventually stop feeding reliably. To understand this you need to know about 3 things: (1) the magazine follower, which is the plate between the last cartridge and the magazine spring that moves up as rounds are stripped off the magazine, (2) the bolt-locking lever, which is the part inside the rifle itself that locks the bolt to the rear after the last round, and (3) the magazine-stripping mechanism, which is the part that feeds a fresh cartridge into the chamber that in my case is simply the bottom of the bolt that comes in contact with the top of the cartridge primer. First note, that when there are rounds remaining in the mag the bolt-locking lever is in the downward position so it does not impede the movement of the bolt, and the lever is constantly exhibiting a downward force. In normal cycling operation, after the bolt is forced back to the rear (by gas or by hand) the magazine follower conversly exhibits a constant upward force on the cartridges above it (due to the magazine spring below it) which forces the top cartridge to be pushed to a height suitable for the stripping mechanism to strip that cartridge. The issue is on the last round in the mag when the bolt goes to the rear, the magazine follower must not only have enough force to push up the last cartridge to an appropriate height, but also push up against the bolt-locking lever. A failure to feed the Snap Caps does not necessarily indicate an issue with the magazine or rifle, however. In fact one might notice zero feeding failure with live rounds, but have issues with used Snap Caps.Read more ›

Works as snap cap should. The extractor of my AR-15 chewed the rims up enough after a couple cycles that I have decided not to use anymore. If the back was made of brass instead of aluminum it may work better.

Practice and improve your skills with these quality snap caps. Don't get those cheap imitations that break or degrade inside your chamber. You want the best tool for the job and you want to invest once (not over and over again.) so buy the brand that the professionals choose. These work as expected and can help you with everything from function checks to jam clearing drills. Get some!

These worked perfect in my milspec AR15, but did not chamber or eject in my friends ATI AR.(the reason for the 4 stars) The feed ramp was not allowing the round to chamber and when we put it in the chamber it would not eject the round.(guns fault not the snap caps fault) But we were still able to place the snap cap in the barrel and test the trigger. Pull the charging handle back just far enough to reset trigger and fire again. I do this with my semi-auto handguns as well so I don't have to chase the snap caps around the room. The snap cap easily falls out to remove. The snap cap was softer than the AR metal and no damage was done at all to the gun. The snap cap had a couple burs to "file" down.

I have used A-Zoom for many of my guns and I am completely satisfied with the snap caps for my personal use.
