The Story

A shotgun is best stored with its firing pins released, not cocked, for less wear on springs. Our highest-quality shotgun snap caps let you safely relax spring tension without dry firing the pins. The impact point on the caps are spring loaded to cause even less stress on the firing pins. Rubber ring around the snap cap keeps the caps from flying out on auto eject guns. Just pop in and press the trigger. Set of two shotgun snap caps. Wooden presentation box included. In silver.

Made in USA.

Sizes 12-, 16-, 20-, 28-gauge, and .410-bore.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Caps get Stuck I purchased the snap caps a couple of months ago for a 12 gauge Browning Citori . On two separate occasions the cap became stuck behind the ejector and took some effort to remove it (screwdriver/Leatherman). It seems that the lip/rim on them is a bit too small and does not fit snug in the ejectors. These are nice looking caps but I will not longer be using them not knowing when they will become stuck again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! Just purchased a new o/u shotgun and wanted to protect the firing pin springs. Snap caps fit perfectly and would recommend them to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Silver Snap Caps These are too short, they can turn sideways in the bore and catch on the ejector.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Snap Cap fell apart In July of 2019 I purchased a new Orvis Fabarm 20Ga Elos D2 at the Sandanona Store along with a pair of your 20Ga Silver Snap Caps. Unfortunately shortly after I had to have back surgery so my nice new shotgun sat in my safe till this spring. When I took it out to give it a little oiling and opened the breech one of the snap caps came out in pieces. It seems that the threads inside the snap cap were very shallow and the only thing that was holding it together was the thread lock that I could still see inside of it. I would return it but that is very difficult at this time. I was rather disappointed as I have always been happy with everything from Orvis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional and Handsome An excellent choice for protecting the pins. Insertion and extraction is a breeze while giving a handsome look to your investment. Orvis quality throughout and the presentation case is a nice touch.
