.45 ACP 1911 – Snap Caps Dummy Rounds

(25 customer reviews)


Set of five .45 ACP dummy rounds / snap caps / fake bullets.

Cartridge Options Explained

With this option steel BB’s (ball bearings) are added to the cartridges. This makes them rattle when shaken, aiding in identification as inert, snap caps.

Cartridges all patina darkened to aid in identification.


Set of five .45 ACP dummy rounds / snap-caps / fake bullets. This cartridge was designed by John Browning for his Colt 1911 design. It was also used in the M1917 revolver, Reising, M1928 Thompson, and US M3 “grease gun” sub machine guns.  The .45 Auto served the US military along with the 1911 through WWI, WWII, the Korean War, and Vietnam.  It was finally replaced in the 1980’s by the 9mm Luger, with some military shooting teams not giving them up until the 2000’s.

Great for safely function checking, dry-fire training, an addition to your re-enactment kit or display with your fine piece of military history.

Available with spent primers in, empty primer pockets, holes drilled in cases, or rubber inserts added to the primer pockets. Properly sized, seated, and crimped.

Thanks for looking!

    These and all the other products I purchased from FakeBullets.com are the real deal, and add authenticity and extra interest to the parts of my collection that I display. They were very reasonably priced, shipped immediately, and are even better looking than advertised! This must be a really fun and interesting business. If I lived any closer I would be asking for a job – and I am retired!

    My adult daughter has little interest in shooting, but I feel she needs to know how to handle my pistol safely, even though it’s normally unloaded and stored securely.
