Rimfire snap caps that don't suck?

Recommended Posts

Curious, anyone come across reliable .22LR or 22 win mag snap caps?

I tried these: TechStudio 3D snap caps on Amazon. It's weak plastic. My lever action sliced it in half and got a chunk stuck in the barrel! My revolver shatters them after one or two shots.

I also tried Steelworx in 22 win mag, but they are not precisely sized. My revolver does not cycle with them and they get a bit stuck in the cylinder.

Any thoughts or experiences?

I use small plastic wall anchors in my revolver. Dirt cheap and you can get them at any hardware store. For testing function on semi-autos I use Tipton 22lr snap caps. They are more rigid plastic but seem to work fine. Every now and then I get one that I need to sand an edge or something so it cycles correctly but they work pretty good overall and aren’t too pricey.

I always thought the Techstudio snap caps looked like something from Barbie's Playhouse.

It's actually so bad. I didn't even know a chunk was stuck in the barrel until I decided to just clean it out for the first time before shooting. I had to push it out with a cleaning rod. Imagine I actually fired like that? :o

I'll see if Steelworx are better in 22LR. It would be good to have something that cycles well in lever actions and semi auto.

For centerfire, I have very good experience with A-Zoom in most calibers.

Everbilt #4-#6 x 7/8 inch yellow plastic ribbed anchors.

Got a pack of 150 a year or two ago, they compress when struck, but havent had any shatter/break (like I have had with legit .22 plastic snap caps). I use em primarily in bolt guns for storage, so not doing a lot of strikes, but with rotation i can get 4+ uses outta each one. Have fed em from mags too.

 

I read somewhere there may be a change in something with current production ones, so may wanna opt for a small pack or at least look em over that they'll still work before going bulk.
