Here's another thread going that will answer your question:
C414 capsule

They're all interchangeable (swappable).
Does Tele-USA sell their CK-12 capsule?

all the brass ck12 414's got bought up a few years ago so people could scavenge that brass ck12 … (looking at you VK) the nylon ones are fine for tons of stuff and they sound better than the later models uls, xls, xlii etc… now people are trying to get stupid prices for eb versions with nylon ck12 's like 1200-1500 and now people are trying to pimp their brass ck12 414's for like 3500 each… crazy.
