Does not extractThese are not sized correctly, or the polymer is weak, but the cap goes too far into the barrel of my PT845 and gets jammed after 10-15 dry fires and couple of cycles of feeding/extracting. The extractor cannot grab the rim of the cartridge, plus I'm pretty sure the cartridge is stuck too tightly in the barrel, and it will not extract. When compared to a live round, the snap cap is farther in the barreI with less of the rim protruding. I have to use a cleaning rod/brush to push it out pretty forcefully. The brass on the rim is also pretty soft and chips easily. The "primer" area on the cartridge does seem to take hits from the firing pin well, but I'm not sure if it will provide enough protection since the round is further in the barrel. I am looking at another brand to replace these.
