How to I get a Spam can open???
So I ordered 1 spam can of 7.62x54R for some fun this weekend with my Mosin.
How do you guys open these things??
you buy two cans and get the opener
The first 40 seconds should tell you what you want to know. But watch the whole thing anyway; it's pretty funny.
(Also, if you buy two cans you get the tool. I'll sell you mine for a hundred million billion dollars.)
I lucked out and got an opener when I bought a single can from JGsales. A cutting torch would work just as well though.
I have several spam can openers, but prefer a hammer and chisel.
4" grinder will make short work of it.
If you don't have one of the openers, get a starting hole with a chisel/ flat screwdriver and a hammer, then a set of tin snips will make short work of it. In a pinch, when you get all the way to the range and realize you forgot an opening tool, a Microtech Scarab will open it up as well.
