Hey guys, I recently opened up my magstrike to see the internals and how it functioned. I began to pump it while holding the pump tube steady. After about 15 pumps or so, the small plastic tube connecting the pump casing to the bladder disconnected from the pump casing. I attempted to put it back in, but to no avail... Any suggestions?

This happened to one of my SM1500's. To attach it I used super glue and then after it dried put gorilla glue over it to make sure no air escaped. You might want to use some Plumbers Gloop or other adhesive other than superglue.

I would try an adhesive like Plumbers Goop, (Or Amazing Goop, same thing) possibly JB weld, although I am not sure how that works for airtightness, I just know it's a good adhesive. And if you're new to nerfing, I would suggest not just opening up guns to see the internals and how it works, there are plenty of pictures of guns on the inside and out in the modifications directory. I "saw how" plenty of my guns worked, until I broke them trying to put them back together. Mod Directory.
edit: Damn, someone always beats me to the punch!

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

5. Protip: sarcasm is good for making someone else look like more of an idiot than they already do. However, if you are an idiot to start with, using sarcasm just makes you look like a COLOSSAL idiot.
