Broken Longshot Plunger Tube Cap Help me fix my primary!
Posted 22 March 2012 - 05:25 PM
when I tried to prime it after installing My Ace#49 spring replacement. I've tried replacing it with the top of a medicine container, and that cracked in half,I don't know what to do next and don't want to spend a lot of money (preferably none). I've heard something about a 3/4 in. PVC end-cap wrapped in E-tape, but so far I have no specific help or plans. All suggestions and help are welcome, please help me fix my primary.

EDIT: Yes, snakerbot is right. DO NOT goop the endcap in place

Do not goop the endcap in place. It only needs to act as a spring rest, so there's no need for it to be airtight. And if you leave it ungooped, you can remove it for maintenance or additional work on your springs. But besides that, yeah it should work. Run some screws through the sides of the plunger tube into the walls of the endcap and it should hold fine. That's what people do on SNAPs.

Is there a writeup for this?
Thanks, but just. Need a little more specifics.

but if that doesn't work out for you, xplorer dart blaster developments just released a metal version of the exact piece that broke on your gun. In my opinion they overcharge for their products, but you definitely won't have to worry about it breaking again. You can find them on facebook: http://www.facebook....41266132605635/ and then email them for price inquiry.

Although this is for a quadshot/octoshot, the the principle holds. This should prevent further damage by distributing the forces over a wider area.
