8 SHOT RING CAPS - 160 SHOTS - 20 RINGS by KandyToys
5.0 out of 5 stars What caps should do., 12 May 2014
They are caps and they bang. That's it!

My little lad and I have got 12-shot cap guns. I read reviews that said the 12-shot ring caps were disappointing and I saw a YouTuber suggesting that you cut the 8-shot rings and use them instead. So I bought these and did that. Genious.

I would buy these again.

Lone Star Super Cowboy 12 Shot Pistol by Peterkin UK Ltd
I bought this just over a month ago for my 9-year-old lad, who is a typical boy in that he enjoys playing with toy guns and pretending to be a "cowboy". He's had a few guns in the past but they broke really easily, being made of plastic and having poor build quality. Kids don't need Rolls Royce engineering but they want toys that will withstand being played with.

This cap gun fits the bill. It is solidly built and the only part not made of metal seems to be the handle, but it feels solid enough. It's quite old school in its build quality. The bullet chamber revolves and the gun makes a good "clack" when you pull the trigger. It has an authentic feel and look to it… Read more
