    Is the supposed "permanently affixed" orange tip removeable from the barrel of the gun? Or do they use some kind of glue or adhesive to make it hard to remove? It's the dealbreaker for me since TFSource is sold out of MP-05.


    Or is there any other online site still have MP-05 in stock? Thanks.

    The BBTS site says the plug will be glued in. Mine should arrive any day now and the first thing I'll do is try to get it out. I'll post my results with pictures as soon as it happens.

    Was the rubber cement easy to remove and did it leave any residue?

    so the orange cap, is not a cap at all.. but a tiny plug which can easily be removed.

    they might as well not even bother trying to follow toy gun laws :lol 

    the point of the law is to prevent any toy gun, from being mistaken as a real gun. that law includes being able to modify the toy to look like a real gun...

    oh well. good for collectors, bad for the company if they get in shit

    where can I order MP Megs the cheapest on-line + shipping. I saw I could get him for $105 at tfsource but they're all outta stock now. Does anyone know a place cheaper? I'm very committed to buying one I just wanna find the right price
