Anyone know where I can buy a couple of the black Browning snap caps that came with some of the Double Auto's? Thanks.

They are not snap caps. They are dummy shells sent with the guns so the buyer could get used to loading the gun thought the side of the receiver. Repeat, not snap caps. If you fine some that have not been already used as snap caps, do not mess them up. I made that mistake long ago and wish now that I had not done so!

RKA5, I have a small collection of them. I find them at gun shows and on ebay.

I do have one marked "dummy". It is the only one I have seen like it.

Ole Cowboy - Thanks for the clarification. I'm more of an A5/Superposed guy but would like to have a couple of those.

Dbl Auto - Good looking collection. Do you (or any one else) have a couple you want to sell? I don't recall ever seeing any of those at a gun show, guess I'll have to look harder.

RKA5, when it comes to Double Auto stuff, I am in buy mode. Look in all of the little junk boxes at the gun shows. Two came with each gun sold so that makes about 134,000 of them out there!
