I just put a snapcap in a new Gen 4 17 and pulled the trigger. Now the trigger stays completely to the rear and I cannot rack the slide to the rear. Any ideas?

Solved. Shot some Slip 2000 down the bore, left muzzle up for a few minutes, racked slide-with a bit more effort. Cause. Old snapcap, was slightly deformed where it headspaced, caused more drag than normal when it was being extracted. I do not like to force things-but this time it worked.

I have had similar problems also with snap caps in rifles and handguns. After some use plastic and aluminum snap caps no longer meet any size specifications. I have had bolt action rifles, AR-15s, auto loading pistols, and some revolvers with chambering and extraction problems with snap caps.
