I want to forget mistakes they've helped me make;
Its better to be broken, then to break...
i cut bands like tat all the time at work with a good pair of diagonal cutting pliers.
Don't overcomplicate a bologna sandwich.....
Thanks for the help everyone, I'm off to Walmart for some tin snips.
:lol: Just make sure to use fragmenting ammo! That way the bullet will break the steel band, fragment, and the fragments won't pentetrate into the cases of ammo! Or even better, frangible ammo! But that might not break the band...Originally Posted by machineguneddie

"All the arms we need are for hugging."
An AK bayonet w/scabbard works great for snipping those things, by the way!
A regular pair of pliers will work also.
Stick the band all the way in and use the inside of the pliers to pinch a tear in the band, once you have that little tear grab one side with pliers and twist, this will then tear right apart.
Remember to keep your eyes safe.
What he said - that, or bolt cutters if you have 'em.Originally Posted by machineguneddie
Now THAT is a great idea! Never thought a bayonet would be useful for anything... thanks for the tip!Originally Posted by ATC
4 1/2" power grinder works good, too, and on a corner won't mark much.
they should have come with can opener mine did quite easy to open with said opener...
Go buy an early Colt SP1 with the open flashider and stick the flashider into the band then twist until it snaps. Just thought I could provide you with some justification for another rifle purchace.

Swiss Army Knife Can Opener. I'm not kidding - they actually work very well on ALL Eastern Block "spam can" ammo.
