    I know some of you wheel gun shooters know where I can get a capper that actually works for my cap and ball pistols . I have been shooting them since 1970, and havent found one that actually works well. I've tried about everything that's available. I have shot about every makers guns starting with Replica Arms out of Marietta, Ohio,in business since the middle 1960s. They had really had good guns, don't know who the maker was. Navy Arms bought them out in the early 70's I shot navy arms products for several years until they started to have workman ship problems. shot San Marcos when they made some very good products,went to Uberti then Pieatta [I may have spelled it wrong] Ive had a lot of pistols threw out the years. Still looking for a capper that works.......Tom

    I made one work by belt sanding the front end down to where the caps are positioned more at the front edge of the the capper. Basically just removed unnecessary material from the front.

    Some file work may be needed to appropriately fit, and feed, caps.
