#220978 Recon Seal?

Posted by y0y0 on 31 March 2009 - 10:48 PM in Modifications

So a broken boltsled? Well, mine broke, more like cracked where it connects to the actual bolt. I repaired it with 2 pieces 5/64 carbon fiber rod and two pieces of carbon fiber strips. This has held up after 50 shots, and now I am trying to prevent the issue of the inverted plunger breaking off at the end where it slams into the bolt. I will have pictures of that in my lessons learned write up.

#220376 Fiberglass Repair Kit Or Metal?

Posted by y0y0 on 28 March 2009 - 09:28 PM in Modifications

I would say use Carbon Fiber. I just repaired my Recon with CF with Gorilla Glue, instant bond, and so far so good. I used carbon fiber rod, round and flat pieces. I will post some pics and hopefully get around to posting the full lessons learned on this modification. :D

Here are some pics of the carbon fiber:

I bought the CF at a hobby store for airplanes and you can most likely buy it online for less.
