    Anyone link the thread about removing the plug from the barrel? Or a site that has a guide to do so? Thanks in advance.

    I was under the impression you just pulled it out and use some goo gone for any remaining residue. I could be wrong though...

    Depending on where it came from, removal should be very easy. If you have the very low profile plug like the ones I sold, then it should be as easy as pushing a pen or similar object through the barrel from the back and it will pop out, then just remove any remaining adhesive, which is soft and pliable.

    If it's the big old honkin' plug some others have...I understand it to be glued in quite tightly and would take more serious measures.

    if it's a BBTS plug, you might have to drill it out. some of those plugs are really hard, with a rounded tip so you can't grip it.

    I have one in the Encore version from HLJ. I was going to leave it MISB, but now I'm pondering opening it to remove the plug. Anyone else get this version or have any advice?

    Yeah, its the BBTS version, so I guess we'll see how it looks once it arrives.

    The reason I will never order a Gun Transformer from BBTS, they go way overboard on the plug thing, where as my MP5 from TFsource was stupid easy to remove.

    Do they do the mod in japan before it comes to USA?

    If they do it AFTER they get it here in the U.S., I think thats kinda retarded to plug on it after they get it.

    Where did you buy it from? You see so those US toy gun laws mean that any US based online store that carries any reissue Megatron has to crack open the package and glue in an orange cap.
