Default Non-firing variants of a specific gun

Note that we have a section at the bottom of the M16 page where we list the replica and non-firing variants of the rifle (notably the MGC nonfiring replica).

So far we define nonfiring as any weapon that has never been able to or never can be made to fire live ammunition. So blank 'starter' pistols/guns, airsoft, dummies, non firing replicas count.

NOTE: We DO have a separate section for ISS's 'nonguns' (aka flashpaper guns) because they are a very distinctive item in the movie industry and NO ONE outside of the industry can get a hold of them. ISS doesn't sell them, ever. You rent them and even when destroyed, you return them to ISS.

Should the official rule be 'non firing versions' of the same weapon (when obvious) at the bottom of each gun's page? These are usually non firing replicas or 8mm theatrical blank models (not a live gun that fires blanks).

Just wanted to check to see if there were any objections, but I think having the non-firing versions at the bottom of each gun's page, helps, but only if there are OBVIOUS examples that can be listed.

I have samples for the Beretta 92, SIG, SAA, Glock, Beretta 84, CZ75, M1911A1, etc.

I think that's the best way we can do it.
Cry "Havoc," and let slip the hogs of war.

Sure thing. No argument here.
