    Was sitting here dry firing my P99 with an A-zoom snap cap in the chamber... and noticed my loaded chamber indicator said the gun was unloaded.

    Would have been the first problem with the gun since I got it, and was going to make me upset, especially seeing as I'm taking the fighting pistol class in under a month, and I'd be pissed if I was gun less due to something inside breaking.

    Turns out the case design on the snap caps is different than an actual round... it's chamfered on the case where it normally rest on the loaded chamber indicator lever.

    Popped in an actual round, racked the slide, and sure enough, works as ze germans intended it to.
