Topic: Where can I find a Dollar size bang ring

Anyone willing to sell or know where I can buy a DOLLAR size bang ring?
Half dollar sized rings are easy to come by but can't locate any dollar size at the moment.

Put the coin in a thick drinking glass.shake gently, it will dislodge the coin from the shell...learned this from Connie Haden in 1974,the inventor of scotch and soda coins...don't be too violent, take your time...

Thanks Mb!!! Don't know why I didn't think of Airship as I agree that they are a great shop. Have ordered many things from them and just received their new ball and tube in fact a few days ago.
Great price for all 3 size rings as well.

FYI, I had a stuck coin in shell and I did try the drinking glass technique and it only seemed to make it worse. Kind of hit or miss with that method I think.
However, what did finally work was gripping the edges with a rubber mat, the kind used to remove jar lids, which gave me a good enough grip while rapping my fingertips as hard as I could stand onto a potholder.
Primitive but it worked.

Also for some sets, you can give a firm push with your thumb and the insert will pop out. For my chained set and my Johnson set they both are like that.

Hey Vid, just checking back here... Were you able to pick up that dollar size bang ring from Airship? How's it working for you? They do great work over there. :)
