Description Technical Specs Extended Information
Nipple Protector (Snapcap)

The Snapcap or Nipple Protector was issued on many Enfields imported during the Civil War. It is used to protect the nipple and hammer from damage during an accidental dry-fire. Our copy has a top made of hardened rubber, with a 1/4" square socket designed to fit over our correct style square lug, high "shoulder" military nipple. They may not fit other nipples. The 6-1/2" brass chain has a steel ring to secure it to the rifle, as issued with the Enfield Muskets. Will not fit the '42 or '61 Springfield.
