New and improved Cash inline capper
« on: September 23, 2019, 05:26:52 PM »
So I was shooting at the NMLRA Nationals last week when a friend comes by and asks
"Have you seen these?"
"Is that the new Cash capper?"
"Yes" says he.
"No, I haven't"
"They have them over on commercial row.  You can bring your guns in and try them out."
"Cool" says I.  "How much they want?"
"Two for $25"
"How much for one?"
"$12.50" he says.
"Whadda ya want two for?"
"Different brands of caps"
"Ah so"

A little while later I'm sitting behind the line and he comes by and throws one in my lap.
"What's this?"
"Keep it"
"Thanks!"

The new Cash capper is supposed to work with all c&b revolvers, has side loading, and positive retention of the cap in the feed area.

I used it a bit and can report the following. 
The good: it worked fine with Rem #11s and RWS.  It worked on an inline caplock, a sidelock, an Uberti .36 1858, a ROA, and an Uberti 1860.  The side load seems easier to use, and I like the way a cap "snaps" into the feed lips when you push the slide follower.

The bad: CCI #11s can tip over inside of it.  Jim reported he couldn't get Rem #10s into his. 

The mundane: holds 15 usable caps.  I wouldn't put too much pressure on it to seat the cap as it's still thin brass.  If you need them seated hard that would still be another step.

Fairly inexpensive and seems to work so long as you use a brand of caps it likes.

Thanks for that news Dave!   I will have to purchase one of those.  I do not see them listed at Dixie Gun Works, Track Of the Wolf, or Cabelas yet.
