Well I have mine so now I can tell you bassards how to get yours. This thing is schweet!

Here is the link Zippo Butane Insert

I filled it up and she works like a charm. Seemed a few thousands small, I mean just a little, so I just pinched with my fingers on the zippo and she snugged up nicely. Got two, but have to give one away to a bud that gave me a Thunder Mtn Hat, dang it!

Yeehaww, no more fluid leaks and evaporation!!!!!

More pics on the site.

You call me a troll and say I don't have anything constructive to add because I'm busting your little scam?

I have conducted well over 100 intellectual property (Patent, Trademark and Copyright) investigations and enforcement actions (raids) in China on behalf of Zippo.

I also have the world's largest collection of counterfeit "Zippo" lighters (raid seizure samples).

I have "visited" over 300 lighter factories in China, mainly in the Wenzhou District of Zhejiang Province, Ningbo (also in Zhejiang) as well as Guangdong and Guangxi Provinces.

The site that you have posted the link to claims "our manufacturing facilities are located in Tokyo, Japan". Why do you not dispute my statement that the inserts are made in China?

Why is there no address listed on the firm's web page?

Anyway, I'm sure Bradford will find this information interesting. BTW, which consumer affairs organization has approved the safety of these inserts?

Me

thunks
you are busted!

I apologize to other members for this ruckus.

is the butane insert windproof? That was the whole reason why I got a zippo in the first place: those cheap butane lighters kept getting blown out...

China gives a rat's ass about patent infringement? Since when?

Who pissed in your cereal? I don't find a Zippo logo anywhere on the insert. Go pitch your anger somewhere else.

Please read the title of this post again:

AR15.com Zippo Lighter butane insert

1. Guess why is this product not listed under Officially Licensed AR15.com Merchandise?

2. Why is TNRonin promoting this product?

3. Why is this product called "Z-plus" (with a flame over the logo)?

4. Why is there no address listed on the web site?

1. It is not an officially licensed AR15.com product.

2. He truly likes the product, or is there another motive?

3. Because "Z" is a good letter to start the name of the product with?. Zippo Mfg. has registered both the "Z" and the flame.

For those of you who say "who gives a shit about trademarks, patents etc.", why do you think it's called intellectual property?

I have heard the stories of the HK marked barrels. Won't some guys pay a premium price just because they are marked "HK"?

Hell I should promote cheap "AR15.com" junk on ARFCOM and make a fortune doing so. I estimate these inserts cost less than a buck each and they sell for over 12 bucks.

Last Question: Why hasn't TNRonin replied to my last post?

I joined ARFCOM to have fun but dipshits like TNRonin get to me.

If you can't accept zippos for who they are you shouldn't own one!

Sweet find. Yeah, my zippo has been a pain in the ass. Are they all this way. I guess if I used it all the time it would be better, but using it about once a week I have to try about twenty times for it to fire up. It'll work fine until I let it sit for awhile.

Um, mine says Zippo Bradford PA Made in the USA right on the bottom as does the insert.

As for the butane insert, nowhere does it state that it is made by Zippo, only that it is a replacement insert.

What is so difficult about that?

Get bent dumbass. TNRonin is just giving people ideas for their AR15.com Zippos. If you think it's a shit product, don't buy one. Otherwise, stop shitting in other people's threads.

Bless your heart! Now I can say whatever I want.

Tukus, LOL, not only are you a you are also a dick smooch. I was talking about the insert, and it isn't a scam, these guys are based out of NY. I ordered it on 10/21 and got it on 10/25, no scam to mee. The back of the box said the INSERT was designed in the states and made in china. Distributed by BLAZER products, Farmindaly NY, and this was shipped from Flushing NY.

I am getting dick from letting the guys know about something we discussed some time ago. Of course you wouldn't know because you are a fucking cherry on the boards!

I didn't respond until now because I had to deal with my boy (9 yoa) and my daughter confiscated the puter for her honors chem project. Sorry I wasn't sitting here ready to respond to your paranoid assinine bull shit!

Once again if you have anything constructive to contribute, STFU!! Bless your heart!

I'm happy you are the expert on lighters and all that, sounds like you could be a serious contribution to society except for your other collateral bullshit (ego), but busted I'm not, what a joke.

Get a life fuckhead! And I mean that in the nicest way. LOL

I'm still having problems believing Takakuraken's story about investigating hundreds of lighter factories in China, personally, at the bequest of Zippo. Again, since when does China give a rat's ass about patent infringement of US products, and why should we believe they would allow some clown from the US to "raid" their factories?

And yes, the Zippos in question are genuine (I have three of them). The insert is an aftermarket add-on that TNronin saw and thought some of us might be interested in. It's not like he's an agent of the Chinese counterfeiting Mafia, trying to get rich by fooling us into buying fake knock-offs of a $12 item. He's not even selling them.

With the apparent brain power Takakuraken has shown so far, I can't wait to see how he feels about Tacpoints!!

if you girls want an arfcom zippo get ahold of tattoo, he set it up the last time

What I don't get is why this wad posted his comments. Oh well, people need stuff to do between investigating the zippo infringements I guess.

And regarding blowing your pecker off? I seriously think if there were issues with exploding lighters (butane style) we would have heard about it sooner. OMG.

LOL, ya I guess, but progress is not bad. I've done some research and blazer, the people doing these, makes beau coup lighters, I think they have the design down. This insert is a metal body at the top (something nickel plated) and appears fairly well made.

for the fun flame war
and because I might buy one for the free copper zippo I got for taking a smoking survey at a bar. I rarely use it and it evaporates in less than a week so that when I do decide to use it it won't light
and I've always wanted a torch flame lighter
