Garantia COBIA: Who in his right mind would think of putting a piece of aluminum into a cycling steel mechanism and expect it to last, you don't need to be a metallurgist to understand such a simple fact!
Garantia COBIA: We are heading for dry firing campus shootings in the near future!
Stizy Staks: dam great video glad i checked this out was going to try that azoom crap
Jason Atwood: I know this video is old, but I still have to say. You want your snap caps to do this. Why, because when 2 metals touch each other the harder metal is going to Mare/scratch the softer metal. This show that the metal of these snap caps are soft in order NOT TO DAMAGE your gun. If the were pristine after use, I would say you better check your gun cause I bet the scratching is taking place there.
yekcoh Kim: One question. The tipton snap caps have brass primers? So when they are indented like your 380 snap cap, the firing pin would no longer touch the primer and so the shock won't be absorbed..
herman dickens: Thanks for the video. You guided me towards the right snap caps the first time.
Samuel Nunez: what about filling a homemade snap cap with hot glue?
Random Acts Of YouTube: I have an azoom 50bmg round.
Tht1guy63: the aluminum a zooms are great for break open shotguns
Darko Begic: For some reason tipton snap caps get stuck in my .45 ACP after dry firing them around 10 times.They get stuck so bad that i have to slam a cleaning rod a few times from the front to get them out.
Justin Clark: You won't put cheap aluminum ammo through your gun? My CCW Glock 23 is yet to malfunction after 9 years and probably 3,000 aluminum cased rounds. ALUMINUM IS PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE TO CYCLE THROUGH ANY SMALL ARM.
MrTrashcan1: Great info. Incidentally, the brass used on the Tipton is probably BETTER than that used in real rounds. Remember that real rounds are only fired once, or at most a few times if you reload. Snap caps have to withstand much more than that.
Carlos G.: Damnit, I just bought and used a-zooms now for the past few weeks with my new Glock.
Randy Beasley: Thank you for the great info, and for saving me some $$$
Paul Grumsha: The triple k's are the only ones I use...coincidentally they're the first and only ones I've tried
jennings flippen: What is the light??????
Head Stirlingite: Thanks, saved myself some time and money and cancelled an order of those a-zooms on amazon.
Your Mom: dat coke nail...
joe z: Couldn't disagree more. Tiptons jam. Not after five hundred dry fires, or fifty dry fires, not after five, they just don't frickin' work. Tiptons jam constantly in every gun I've tried them in ... EVERY SINGLE GUN! A plastic molding is not as accurate as machined aluminum. Period. The A Zooms work perfectly. Can you cycle them through hundreds of times? What? Are you a frickin' idiot? Of course not! Sorry, dude, these work great for their intended use. Practice loading mags, practice extracting, some dry firing. Some! Not hundreds of cycles. That's just stupid. Aluminum vs steel. What do you expect?
sixgunluvr1: Everything you have on the table is junk......have you not heard of B's Dry Fire?
