Post by shooterMCgaven

Hello!

I am interesting in buying the M725 Carbine from Den Trinity as my first modelgun. Before I buy this gun I was wondering about the legality of caps in the US, and what type of caps this gun would need to fire.

P.S. I was also woundering if there are any specific laws for california that would restrict me from getting this modelgun.

Any help is appreciated!

Hello and welcome to the forum!
I would suggest you check through DenTrinity's rules and regulations regarding Sales to the US first.
Another way would be to check a US retailer's site as they tend to be very detailed and informative about differing States and their sets of regulations.
Try this guy, he appears on E-Bay regularly, most of his pages are Law related!
E-Bay Item number 6633082230 is one of his offers, I'm sure he can get your questions answered.
Good luck!

I can recommend the MGC M-725 from denTrinity. It is worth every cent as it is a solid, very detailed and reliable modelgun. Some do not like that its receiver is made of heavy weight plastic and that it is rather complicated to take the gun down for cleaning.

If you are new to modelguns and want to find out if they fit your needs, try this M-725. You canīt do wrong on that special price denTrinity is currently offering.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

I have bought a few of the M725's from Dentrinity and they are excellent. They are very reliable when they are loaded carefully and maintained.

As for the caps here in the U.S. they are legal. However, the U.S. Post office will not allow them to be mailed as they are "fireworks" so, UPS can be used to ship them. I have been very successful in getting them myself over the years and many other forum members here in the U.S. have too.

Shipping model or airsoft guns to California is always a problem legally as your state is a very anti-gun state. I have heard that it isn't legal to import modern post 1898 replica,model or airsoftguns into California without a film-makers licence or other theatrical use in mind.

Although there are many people in your state that have these modelguns that aren't in the business....

Thank you all for your help, I am currently researching California state laws and hoping that (if everything goes as planed) I can buy this modelgun on friday. Also, where do you guys get your caps? I would like to know because dentrinity does not sell them. Again, all help is appreciated.


Oh, I forgot. When I am buying caps will I need to buy both 7 mm and 5mm or just the 7mm, or vice versa?

Unless you plan to buy at a later date, a modelgun that uses the 5mm size caps i would just get the 7mm caps at this point. You have a choice of caps in the 7mm they are the MGC or the Marushin "brands" The MGC caps are "plain" with extremely few (if any) visible sparks. The Marushin caps have a filler in their composition that makes the caps spark when they are fired. This spark is faint in some guns and very visable in others.
I prefer the MGC caps myself as i think they have more power. It is really a preference issue on the cap selection..

Thank you for your advice and for the fast reply. I cant wait to shoot a model gun. Is there any noticable kick, or does it feel like shooting an airsoft gun?

As for recoil well, sometimes it depends on the model that you are shooting as some of the modelguns out there have as much recoil as the real gun! Most not all of the modelguns have recoil that is strong enought to feel somewhat real..My MGC Colt Combat Commander recoils as much as a .22 pistol in my opinion.
Modelguns can be a pain when it comes to cleaning as the gun and cartridges need to be cleaned as soon as you are done shooting! No exceptions! As the few steel gun parts can corrode as well as the cartridges..If the cartridges aren't cleaned with a solution of hot water, vinegar and baking soda and dry them with a hair dryer after you are done shooting. As they can and will corrode (in a day or so) to the point that they will be almost welded together and it will take a lot of energy to get them apart. The cartridges are the heart of the modelguns and they are expensive too so it is best to take care of them as well as the gun.

Will a takedown manual as well as an exploded diagram come with the gun? And if so are they in Japanese?

Yes, dissasembly instructions as well as a diagram is usually included in of course, Japanese. However, that is what this forum is all about. If you need any question about modelgun maintenance answered we can usually answer it here. So, Japanese instructions or not we can help.

I checked DenTrinity's site to look at the M-725 mentioned here. Is that a PFC model??? The advert calls it a Display Model only, incapabable of firing...
If it is a PFC one then that price is really good!
Also, try Francky for caps too

Yes, it is the plug fire cap version. DenTrinity declares all modelguns on their site as "non-firing".
