other means of breaking off the cap

Step 3: Final Assembly
Tape the cap to the part where the eraser used to be and put the grip in the clip as a sight or grip.(optional)it should look like the second image
Step 4: Final Prep
insert a 4 or so in. long piece of thread in the hole in the back of the ammo then put in your propellent of choice.Matcheads work fine especially if you crush them into a powder.
