The bottle opener works very well. The shell casing is pretty beat up (dents and such) and polished very well. If you are looking for a new looking casing you may want to go elsewhere. If you want a casing with character this is the place. I wanted new but the character is growing on me. Shipping was quick.
I bought this as a Christmas gift for a retired friend of mine. Awesome quality and an awesome way to show your support of our service men and women.
