It wasn't an issue in the 19th century largely because the quality of the caps was actually better than that of today in much tthe same way the Italian bastardations of the P53 & M1861 are in NO way even the equal to the origianl arms.

There is an enromous difference between the performance of the original arms and the poor imitaions of the Armi Sport & EuroArms.

The 2-3 original underhammers I have examined (never actually seen one of the re pops up close) have a very tight half cock w/ nowhere for the cap to go.
