I searched around a bit and didn't find what I was looking for. I know hot glue could be used for it, but I want something stronger and more reliable.

I'm attaching a different pistol grip to a tek 6 and I want to know if I should use epoxy or Bondo or maybe even JBweld (skeptical on that).

Thanks

get plastic sheets (or cardboard) and hot glue them together on the inside, using the sheets for support, then use plumber`s goop

Epoxy is cheap, strong, and forms a durable, long-lasting bond. Use that instead.

Well I use Plumbers Cement or Grout The upside for both of them are great durable hold but only Plumbers cement is air tight and water tight. or just use epoxy then reinforce with hot glue.

I just don't like hot glue in general. I know it can be useful in some applications but I have used it throughout middle school and high school shop classes and have and haven't been impressed with it. I just don't feel that it would have the strength to hold a high stress portion intact with the forces that might be applied to it. It has it's uses, but I don't feel that I should use it externally. It also doesn't like to form well...

I guess I'll go with epoxy, maybe I can slip out of the house to drive to get some.

Thanks for the input guys.

I kninda know what you mean about hotglue, although I find it good for testing things, becuase it just rips off if you want to change something (e.g. a barrel replacement).

I use Araldite for permanate fixtures, or Bisonite, which is insansly strong. Once you glued something with that stuff, it ain't coming off.

I use a large mixture of super and hot glue. I use the super glue first, and then the hot glue. it holds very strong. Sometimes the fumes get to your head though, so when that happens, don't try to test your new mod point blank on your under arm. You do not want to go there. Trust me.

I've tried that before (for a clipped BBB) and it does hold pretty well.

As for Araldite and Bisonite, I'm not sure where you can get them. Although I havn't seen Bisonite around for a while, I did find somewhere selling it when I Googled it though. I remeber reading on the packet that 1cm³ of Bisoite can hold something like 30 stone (420 pounds) I don't know if thats true or not but it's pretty insane even if it's half that. Although dunno how pointful it is really as the stuff you bond together with it will break before the glue itself does.
