Lyman Products has added A-Zoom StrikerCaps to its line of safety training, function testing and dry-firing practice products. For traditional snap cap dry-fire practice in striker fire type pistols, the slide must be drawn back to cock the pistol, which then extracts and ejects the snap cap from the pistol. Lyman’s new A-Zoom StrikerCaps are made without a rim and are equipped with a centering O-ring which grips the chamber walls and keeps the snap cap in place in the chamber.
“You simply chamber the A-Zoom StrikerCap, then rack the slide to cock the pistol and the StrikerCap absorbs the firing pin hit just like our other standard A-Zoom Snap Caps," says Trevor Mullen, VP of global marketing and business development for Lyman Products. "But the StrikerCap stays in place, so you can keep on practicing your trigger control and sight picture without having to stop your practice and find your snap cap and rechamber it.”
Using A-Zoom StrikerCaps while practicing dry firing or function testing a pistol after repair or cleaning will prevent damage to the firing pin and/or the barrel breech block with repeated trigger work, Lyman says. The A-Zoom StrikerCaps are precision machined from aluminum with a cushioned primer for repeated cycling and shaped exactly like an actual loaded round for accurate loading and feeding, yet finished in a bright training orange color to clearly discriminate them from a live round.
The new Lyman A-Zoom StrikerCaps are available for .380 Auto, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP in two-round packs starting at $8.98 retail.
