PostSubject: Import Caps from Taiwan to Europe?   Thu Jan 13, 2011 8:36 am

Hello!

I have big fireing problems with my WaShan M9...
Then picure had the idea, to use Taiwanese Kane Caps. Because his M9 works much better with those.
Does anyone know where to get those?
Anybody knows a dealer who could bring them safely into europe?

Best wishes!

Hi Badbean,

Some time ago, I tried every which way I could to buy various parts and cartridges from Taiwan. I failed each time
Taiwanese dealers tried to overcharge (falsifying exchange rates Shocked ), asked for credit card payment direct to the salesman, not the Business Suspect ...
There is also, apparently, a big Customs problem exporting replica guns and associated parts from Taiwan so I decided to forget the whole idea.

From experience, I wouldn't recommend attempting to buy anything direct from there.

Kane caps are the company that make ALL the caps we use for our modelguns. Marushin 7mm & 5mm, M.G. Caps 7mm & 5mm, so called "Real Flame" caps are all made by Kane.
I seem to remember discussing the Kane caps you mention, weren't they in a Blue or Pink box Question They were not a type offered for sale by all our regular suppliers.

To be honest, if your modelgun and cartridge set-up is correct, you should have no problems at all using the regular Marushin or M.G.Caps. You won't go wrong with them.

Argh damn...

That thing fires absolutely properly, EXCEPT for 2 shots being fired at once some time...

The idea, that the slide isnt pushed back enough, so it comes forward to soon and detonates another, sounds somehow plausible. So stretching the spring would be one idea. But I wont do anything like that...
Maybe it remains a mystery, until someone holds it in his hands who really knows something of those models^^
