Abstract : The patent describes a cover for attachment on a dummy training missile prior to loading the missile into a gun breech tube having a firing pin and breech fingers. A cylindrical tube is formed by heating, drawing and spinning a metal blank around a mandrel or by cutting off a section of tubing. One end of the tube is open and the opposite end is closed and indented to provide clearance for movement of the firing pin.
