After I took apart my LongShot, and took out the clip release so I could take out the trigger lock, my dog ate the fucking outside button of the clip release. Damn mutt.
Anyway, is there a way to replace this/use a substitute item for it?

Don't want to shove balls in tight spaces. Trust me, bad idea.

Use a bit of dish soap on the dog, and like Fett said, get a pair of gloves.

Although, I think it would be safe to assume that the piece is dissolved in stomach acids by now.

If it takes stomach acids 5 years to dissolve margerine, then I highly doubt that they could dissolve plastic in a couple days, which, come to think of it, is basically what margerine is.

I'll sell you mine. I singled my Longshot witch no long needs a clip or the clip release button. PM me if you are interested.

That is if i can find it. I try and look for it only if you want me to.

If you still have the inside piece, all it will take is gluing on a small metal bar or something of sorts. If not, you can add friction to the tops of your clips(by painting, etc). This will remove the need for the clip holder, but you may have to repaint every couple of months.

I don't want to come off as a know it all, but Margarine is not made out of plastic. It does have a really high fat content though, and depending on the manufacture, its chemical makeup can be similar to plastics. It is still a pain to digest, apparently.

You could always try to make the button. I think I would go about it by creating a small mold out of paper, if the part is really simple. I would then fill the mold with hot glue, let it harden, and rip the paper off. Then I would trim it to shape with a sharp knife.

A hot glue clip release would probably break fairly easily. Unless you wnnt to make a new clip release every month or so, I would reccommend calling Hasbro and seeing f they will do a parts order. Tell them you opened the blaster to see how it all worked and the clip release button fell out and your dog chewed it up. Many toy companies will send out replacement parts for toys. I don't know if Hasbro will, but it's worth a shot.

A broken gun just means more parts for the other ones.

My dog always eats my stock darts, and the suction cups always come out the other end completely intact.
So your clip release button is probably still alright just watch for it the next time your dog goes number 2.

The solution is to shoot your dog "Old Yeller" style.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?
