20 February 2013 - 05:08 AMOne question; how secure is the plunger tube to the shell?
And as others said, how did you secure the pt to the shell?
Am I missing something, it seems like you have completely neglected attaching the plunger tube to the blaster ?
You have a large amount of deadspace eg. spring is too short/plunger tube too long.
Any consideration given to adding some sort of spring rest to spread the load ? The plastic seems pretty weak around the catch.
The E-tape around the plunger tube that fits behind the second screw port from the top at the front of the blaster should be enough to hold it in. If you're worried about it or have problems with it coming out, just slather some hot glue in there.
In all my nitefinder rifles and now this, I have that extra "dead space" as an attempt to lessen the wear and tear as the plungerhead slams against the coupler. Sure, there are better ways of doing it, but it works for me. Also, even with the spring shorter, the plungerhead still travels the length of the plungertube. It performs well enough that I don't really care to eliminate any minor inefficiencies.
I gave no consideration to anything around the spring rest. I guess I'll find out if it needs reinforcement over time. Hopefully later rather than sooner.
You know that you can use this: http://www.mcmaster....ow-rods/=lk4jnj in the fire strike because the stock plunger and shell can fit it, and you wont have to use some other plunger head. I have already donethis withe the previously mentioned plunger tube andbasically just smaller, like the same size, and got 90', so ya.
