PostSubject: Home Made Caps for Model Gun   Sat Oct 06, 2012 3:21 pm

***Under Construction***

Will update soon:
The dimension of home made paper caps
include video firing comparison using kanecaps and home made caps


Sorry for my broken English Very Happy

In my country, caps difficult to find and expensive, the price arround USD 75 for one box Kanecaps. The model gun it's self the price can be double from Uncompany retail price.

So i really want to fire my model gun but i can't affort the caps. So i'm making an experiment to make caps with cheap material.


Ring Caps and Paper Caps

The Ring Caps sold arround USD 0.5 and the paper caps USD 0.2



Put the ring caps to used cup of kanecaps
or home made paper cup


The sample cup made by paper


Put the caps to the cartridge





The hand made caps ready to use. Make sure your ring caps is dry or just
dry it in the sun. When you the model gun, the gun will fire, blowback and the used cartridge will flying out. But no 'Bang' sound. So follow the next step



Put a little match head powder like in the picture, so the 'bang' sound will appear.

Warning: Using match head will making your cartridge really dirty compare using Kanecaps.

Good luck with your enteprises :-)
This might be a working way to replace kanecaps, or to fire more cheaply.
