More years ago than I recall exactly I shot in a match with my .54 Lyman Great Plains Rifle.  With two consecutive shots I split the ball on an ax head breaking the two clay birds hanging along each side, then cut the card at about 30 feet.  I'm sure even then I couldn't have done it with a .36 rifle, much less a pistol.  GF

So far Mike is the only person I have seen who can not make this tool work properly.   He didn't seem to have a clue about it at all.  Too bad he has such a wide sphere of influence because this review will undoubtedly discourage a lot of potential buyers.

I was thinking the exact same thing Mike.

I know I probably sound like a paid Polish Capper Fanboy, but you really do have to try hard to make the thing not work. I am having trouble biting my tongue and not posting a comment on his video.

Here's mine for the day.




I just acquired these over the weekend. Or more accurately I should say, I re-acquired them. I did some horse trading with Alaskanguy about a year ago, and sent him these pistols in our deal. We just recently did another deal and he sent the pistols back to me. I was glad to have them back.

The 51 Navy is a .44 with a Sheriff length barrel and an Army grip. I know, it's not correct. But it's a very nice shooting pistol. The 61 Navy is a .36 and also has a shorter barrel. I never even got to shoot that one. So it will be nice to finally get to. I may eventually convert this one with a Kirst gated conversion. I've been wanting a .38 and also want to fool around with heeled bullets. This would be the perfect platform for such shenanigans.

It could also be a cap frag in the works. When tearing it down for the checks as posted above, make sure to keep your eyes open for them...

Never thought of that. You're absolutely right Capt. Check for the obvious first. Good call.

Yeah, I love Mike. But he's not the last word on things. Sometimes even he gets it wrong.

He needs to adjust his technique a bit. He was trying to blame the capper and the caps but it is just the way he's doing it. Also, he's blaming the capper for the caps falling off the gun under recoil. That's just absurd. You watched him push every cap on with his stick, and two caps still fell off. That's a cap fitment issue, not the cappers fault. It's also part of the reason why he was having such a hard time putting the caps on. The caps are too loose on those nipples.

He probably should have reviewed the instruction video from the Polish Capper folks based on their direction he's holding it wrong and applying it wrong.
