PostSubject: where can i find caps?   Sat Nov 24, 2012 12:16 pm

hi,
i'd like to know where i can find caps for my modeloguns?
before I bought them at "francky' modelguns" but since it is closed I don't know where i can buy it.
I think it's too expensive on "modelguns collector" website.

Thank you very much.

hi,
thank you for your post.
I know this adress but it's even too expensive than "modelguns collector" :

11 euros for one box of 100 caps instead of
9 euros on "modelguns collector" website
it was only 4 euros on "francky's modelguns"


Thank you
Have a good day

Sadly cost has gone much higher after Japan banned normal shipping via Post.
Currently caps have to be imported from Japan with a complex legal paperwork and handled like explosives along the way.
This adds to delivery cost, and to the final price.

Not the best news for hobby, but at least caps are available - there was a period when it was not possible to import them at all.

Hello bricollilo

I've just checked www.modelguncollector.co.uk to find caps are priced at 10 GBP per 100 which equals €uro 12.03 according to Paypal's currency converter. It would certainly be good news to learn their price has reduced considerably. One point to remember is that www.modelguncollector.co.uk did only supply caps to customers buying model guns from them. Unless their prices and sales policies have changed very recently they will not supply caps to customers that have not bought model guns from them.

www.franckysmodelgun.com in Japan has closed business now. He is now based in Hawaii as I mentioned in "Modelgun News" under "Francky's Back". He offers caps for sale on Gunbroker.com at US$ 14.50 per box of 100 which is €uro 10.89 Plus Shipping

Another Gunbroker.com seller based in California "Model Gun Collector USA" (Please note there is no connection at all with www.modelguncollector.co.uk ) offers caps at US$25 per box of 100 i.e. €uro 18.78

www.plugfirecapgunsuk.com list caps at 8.50 GBP i.e. €URO 10.23 according to Paypal at todays' exchange rates. This company will sell and ship caps to any customer even if the model gun was bought elsewhere

Sadly, Japanese Law and Mail Delivery policy banned the carriage of caps from Japan over 2 years or more ago. It is no longer possible to buy caps direct from Japan without correct Import Licences for Explosives. The good times of US$4.20 a box are well and truly over.

If you have confirmation from www.modelguncollector.co.uk that will sell and ship caps to you at €uros 9 per box I think we would all like to see it please Very Happy Those will be the least expensive on the market today, I'm sure we'll ALL be asking him for supplies

I'm not sure but John may be on holiday at the moment. I'd give it another few days and if you've still had no reply try e-mailing him at mail@plugfirecapgunsuk.com
