    It is all one metal piece. (no dummy bullet) The oval is a cut out and that is a spring inside. I picked it up at a big yard sale and the guy didn't know what it was. I'm having trouble doing the pic of the base. Ron

    I agree, looks like a 7.62x51mm snap cap, if it was for a garand it would be 7.62x63mm excluding the simulated dummy bullet,but you did not supply a measurement...........

    Roughly 1/4" (rimless) and 2 2/16 in length using a ruler. There are no markings on it. Ron

    I'm not sure. In fact I know I don't know. I have a K-31 but it's 7.5X55. Can't try it in that. Well, I guess I'll just have to take it to a gun show one of these times. I do thank you for your help zwerge. If you see something on it let me know. Ron
