I know that this will appear to be a basic question to many, but how do you use snap caps? Do you load a magazine with them, or just put one in the chamber? I think I know how I would use them in my revolver, but am unclear about my P99c.i drfire regularly,but use snap caps.it doesnt hurt the pistol.if in doubt,just ask Walther.
Thank you. I appreciate the quick and most helpful response. I am off tomorrow to get some snap caps..U put 1 in an empty mag. Then, U pull the slide back and let go - like if you were loading a real round.
You dry fire once - then pull the slide back just enough to recock the gun w/o ejecting the round. U do this over and over.
Depends on the gun and snap cap - it's really just your observation.One more question, if I may: I assume that they don't last indefinitly.How many strikes before they need to be changed? Thanks.
Thanks, Shipwreck. That helped.Depends on the gun and snap cap - it's really just your observation.
As the firing pin makes the depression deeper and deeper - ya gotta basically take an educated guess as to when it is too deep. At some point, the depression will be big enough that the pin is no longer making contact. Then, it is worthless and U would toss it away and start with a new one.
Maybe 100? 75? WHo knows... I've never counted...
