Most of the guns, function and operate EXACTLY like the real thing (except they do not fire a forward projectile) which makes them safe to use and own and are like the type of replicas seen in movies where it looks like real bullets are being fired, with shells ejecting flying through the air, barrel smoke and everything you get from a real gun, except, no projectile is fired.
This form of training equipment does not use blanks and cannot chamber or fire either blank or live ammunition.
These replicas use a brass and reusable cartridge which is loaded with a special cap which produces the action including the bang and smoke whilst also ejecting the shell(s), this gives a realistic full cycle effect from chambering to firing.
Because of the design of the round which is fired, these cap guns are not as loud as blank firers but operate, fire (semi & full auto) and often strip-down exactly like the real thing making them a perfect addition for a variety of realistic training. Each gun has a different cycle of fire which is similar to its ‘real steel’ equivalent because their internals are also built similar to the real gun. These guns do not use a standard size cartridge (like 9mm blank firers) but instead, use different calibre cartridges depending on the gun in question.
