I never said the cap was expensive. But it is pretty heavy for such a small piece. They could have made it out of a hard polymer, which would be very durable and lighter.
Every ounce lighter helps, especially when that is one of the concerns with the marker.
The gun really doesn't seem that heavy when you hold it but I have not taken it out all day during a senerio game yet.
