Have any of you guys heard of Marui caps? A guy tells me he has 5mm & 7mm Marui caps for sale. I've never heard of them.

If they do exist, are they any good?

Francky sells the Mauri brand caps and they seem to be good. But, they are different than the "normal" 5~7mm caps that we are all used to. The Mauri caps have special outer diameters intended for the weird Mauri cartridges.

All caps that are manufactured for modelguns today are made by "KaneCap" in Japan. Some have a slightly different chemical composition to create sparks etc. But, they are all made by the same company.

Mauri modelguns do include a small strip of adapter cap bodies in their kits. These adapters are meant to adapt a normal 5mm cap to work in the strange Mauri cartridges. These adapters really don't work that well but neither do their modelguns..

They are designed for the Marui kit modelguns and are of slightly different proportions to the usual M.G.Cap and Marushin caps.
Pretty sure that in my tests they are not as powerful either though it was a long time ago when I tried.
Think I tried a 7mm in a non-marui gun and it wouldn't cycle properly.

Hope that helps
