    So it’s about time to replace the batteries in my Sniper. But the batteries are not will to be removed from the red caps. Suggestions anyone?

    Assuming the heating the caps up with a torch is not a solution. :)
    Have considered using a 1/4 inch dowel rod with a dab of super glue and attaching it to the battery. My other idea is to drill a small hole in the back of the cap and push the battery out.

    Take the caps and tap them opening down on a desk or table. That’s the instructions given to me by Sniper USA. It worked.

    Ty,
    thanks for the reply. Tried vigorlessly at tapping them on a kitchen counter without success. But will try that again in the morning when it’s cooler.
