A few months ago someone posted a link to a C&B capper made in Poland.  Looked really nice and is made from machined brass rather than sheet brass.  I kept waiting for someone to order one and file a report.  No one has so I took a chance of being hacked by the Russians and ordered one.  I am not joking as the Russians have hacked millions of American credit card numbers and there is a brisk trade in them on the dark web.   I went with PayPal so there will, hopefully, be a record of the transaction and maybe some security.  At any rate I ordered one and did get a response with a photo of a package with my address on it that they are sending it in.  Will be intersting to see when or if it arrives.  It it does I will post a few close up photos of it.  The things I do for you guys.:wacko:

I ordered mine way back.  Came with no problem.  Actually it's a good piece of brass.  Was very pleased with what I received.  It work perfect on my ROA's.  Won't work on my other C&B toy's.  At least without some modifications.   But I'm at least 2 times faster with my Snail capper.  But considering what you pay for a Snail capper and what the Poland capper cost.  The Poland capper if by far better quality.  But again I'm a lot faster with the Snail capper.  

 

You will be fine.

It will hold 100 caps with no problem.  It did tarnish a little setting in my truck for a couple of month's.  Looks nice but again faster with the Snail capper.  I think I paid 58 dollars shipped.

Out of curiosity Larsen.

 

How much in dollars was the capper and also the shipping? If you don't mind sharing.

I bought one of least expensive of the two models and it was about $45. The more expensive version with the fancy engraving would have been about $50

I bought one about a month ago and had no issues with the purchase. Like Larsen I used PayPal. Came wrapped in several layers of bubble wrap and stuffed inside an envelope with lots of polish postage stamps attached.

 

As I am new to the C&B world I don't have any experience to compare it to. It is well made and feels quite durable. It fits my 58 Remingtons very well however it would not work on my 36 cal 51 or 61 Navys.  I don't have a 44 cal to perform a test fit on to see it it will work on a larger caliber cylinder.

 

Need to catch a day when the heat index is not over 100 so I can take my 58s to the range and see how I like them.

Two things - Poles are not Russians.  Second - If you need to order something online, get a Visa or Mastercard gift card for the approximate amount and use it.

I know Poles are not Russians.  However it is the Russian mobs that are hacking credit card processing systems and selling the card numbers, especially in Europe.  They are international criminals.

 

Now all you guys are coming out of the woodwork that have bought one these.  :lol:   I Think the one I bought was $47.00 with shipping.

But why would this transaction be any different than any other online purchase then.  Silly -  I'll see you on the 17th.

Actually almost all of the eastern European systems are quite new.  They are just now ramping up the use of credit cards.

Not so sure about the web, but my brother in law was in Russia for three weeks about three years ago and every card they used was hacked almost the minute they used it. I know there are borders, but not so sure of the sanctity or respect given to them.

I ordered the capper on July 7 and it got here today, July 14.  Much faster than I expected.  The quality is fantastic.  The body is milled from a solid block.  The head of the capper is designed for the Remington, which from what I have read is the most popular C&B in Europe.  Their videos on YouTube show how to modify the head for use with Colt style revolvers.  I bought it to use with Ruger Old Armies.  The capper is a very tight fit in the ROA cap windows and will require a little fitting to work well with the ROA.  I have several sheet metal snail cappers.  They run around $30.00 each.  The Polish capper is $47.00 with postage and delivery by registered mail.  Is it worth the extra $17.00?  In my opinion it sure is.  I like quality and these things are without doubt the finest cappers made.

On mine I ran a 1/8" diameter end mill down the sides of the capping tab (the projection on the left in the photos) taking .010" off each side and .010" off the very tip.  Then I took a Dremel with a cratex wheel and blended the tiny flat made on the tip into a nice radius.  That is all it took to make it fit my ROAs perfectly.  I used a mill because I have one but it would have been easy to do with a file.

Can they be used left handed ?

On every cap and ball revolver I have ever seen the capping cutout in the frame is on the right hand side.  (The only exception might be the Dance as it has no recoil shield and I don't have one of those to test the capper on.)  I suppose a lefty could hold the revolver upside down while capping so the groove is on the left side, but I have never seen anyone do that.

 

I'm not left handed but I just tried it in my left hand.  As a practical matter it does not appear they are left handed.  The primers feed by gravity and when held in the left hand gravity is pulling the caps away from the feeding port on the inside of the capper.  If the capper is turned over and operated with the index finger instead of the thumb it works but is facing the wrong way.  As a practical matter I would say no.  Also pretty much a moot point as the capping groove on C&B revolvers is on the right side.

I think he quoted the wrong post.  Pretty sure he was talking about me.  I don't fall down much either.  But that one time sure left an impression.  Literally and figuratively. :D

Ladies and gentlemen, After few months of operation we would like to summarize it and give you more information: Universal Capper made by Polish Cappers was designed and created by myself specifically for Remington New Army users. The reason for this is prosaic, I have used Remington New Army for long time for target shooting considering it a more accurate gun then Colt Army and there was no similar solution to allow Remington New Army users to comfortably put percussion caps on the nipples. As we all know, Colt users have long been a proven solution in the form of a universal capper made by TDC. That universal capper did not fit into Remington New Army. Because the “Remingtoners” were wronged and I had Remington New Army myself, I decided that I would spend my time, money and commitment to create a brand new solution that would satisfy those needs. As a master of engineering at Warsaw University of Technology I have technical discernment and I have designed a beautiful, functional and reliable universal capper. I designed a completely different solution. Universal Capper by Polish Cappers has world-class loading head unit as well as the loading mechanism. This loading head does not have any parts working under tension and therefore is very limited subject to deformation or damage. This new design forces another way of applying the percussion caps in the axis of the nipple by pressure and retraction.  Such a method of applying percussion caps is natural and most effective because it is precisely in the pressing movement is the whole mystery of firm, powerful application of the percussion caps on the nipple. This is the way how universal capper made by Polish Cappers works naturally. The whole universal capper is made on industrial machines with the highest possible accuracy and not the “cottage method”. We have production capacity to ensure continuity of supply and repeatability of production. The capper is made from highest quality materials /brass also has several grades/ and also has a loading piston printed in 3D technology made of very strong plastic instead of brass. Material science specialists decided that the brass piston could wipe and melt while working, remember that all parts are perfectly folded, the capper works smoothly without unnecessary backlash and is therefore aesthetically pleasing. The size of the 150 caps is not accidental, the inspiration was the size of a well-known smartphone company with an apple logo. This makes it even comfortable to wear even in gloves as well as easy to load the chamber with percussion caps. There is the mark on the lid made in Poland because we are a global company selling worldwide and already have many satisfied customers. The creation of this universal capper for Remington New Army is the first phase in the development of our company. A few weeks ago I bought a Colt Army and started shooting it after exchanging front sight, it turned out that it just shoots 25m as Remington New Army. On the occasion of this purchase I decided to check whether our Polish Cappers universal capper can handle Colt. It turned out that after a little filling the loading head can be adapted to Colt Army as well. Consequently, there is information on our website that such modification is possible and Colt users can customize their PCA or PCB model to their own needs. Of course this is at your own risk because the Polish Cappers universal capper is for Remington New Army users. Currently  under the pressure of Colt owners, we have decided to lunch a new PCC model that will have a modified loading head for Colt. Of course we will continue with the PCA model which in our opinion is ideal for Remington New Army, just technical and aesthetic masterpiece. This is a purely business decision. Colt users will have universal capper by Polish Cappers I can promise. As of today, we are slowly ending the promotional sale of PLN 155 for the PCB model with logo of the company. There are only a few pieces left and the PCA model with the Eagle will be still offered for PLN170 and after its partial sale will lunch the PCC series for Colt users. The PCA series as our Classic for Remington New Army will still be available. The PCC series will handle Colt and Remington as it is shown in this video. Universal capper made by Polish Cappers can only be purchased in our online store at www.polishcappers.com, we do not expect any extension of sales through stationary store or other retail stores. Now after few months of operation we would like to say big THANK YOU for all people around the globe who already purchased our new universal capper. We are present now in Europe, US, New Zealand and some other places around the globe. We are proud to help people to enjoy black powder shooting. Best regards, Polish Cappers

 

 

Few more information:

Here we are now in US /our Customers are living there/:

fZpYeJ.jpg

 

Here is our FB page: www.facebook.com/polishcappers

 

Reading your reviews one important comment to operation: This capper needs to be pointed first head down /not slide the piston yet/ then move it head up and then slide to enter one cap to loading head by loading piston. It is vital to not open the loading head pointing it down because the capper will free fall to the loading head and can flip over. 

If you will push the cap to loading head using loading piston then never you will have problem with falling aside percussion caps.

 

When you will master this movement you will be very fast and due to the way of operation your caps will be always strong pushed on the nipples.

 

Last remark: Our side is in English as well, you can change the language on top by clicking on the Polish flag and choose US Flag.

 

You can pay for this capper by credit card /first option/ or PayPal second option. We are sending it Word Wide. 

 

We are so happy to help people to with our fantastic as you wrote product.

 

Today we received the order from Hawaii and few days ago from New Zealand so we are now truly Word Wide company thanks to you.

 

Please watch our channel on YT there are many information about this capper and how to use it correctly.

 

Once again thank you so much. BTW we are Poles not Russians and our logo with White Eagle from 1863 is a symbol of the January Uprising in 1863 when we fight with Russian Army.

 

Best regards

Polish Cappers
