So I made up some small pistol primer adaptors to try out.
Not my idea, saw it on youtube.
They fit and work perfect.
I now keep some primers in my range box.

Really good idea Hylander. Maybe all of these shortages will be over with in 5 years or so.

Could you please give a link to the youtube video?

Great idea but begs the question: Are small pistol primers any easier to find right now than percussion caps?
A little bit easier around here.
But you can also use small rifle primers which are easier to get.
I have both on hand.

Here is the link.
Tubing is clear vinyl .170 I.D.

Small pistol primer conversion
Great idea, thanks for passing it on. I’m not short of caps but I’ll give this a tryout, one never knows.

The idea just struck me, used primers minus the anvil and with the firing pin impression hammered out might accept a child’s toy cap.
Must try it.

This tubing used with actual, hard to find, percussion caps will stop cap fragments from flying and help seal the cap from moisture on a wet day. Some outfit was selling precut pieces as "cap keepers" I think they were calling them.
