My BBBB's trigger broke so I put a crap load of Plumbers Goop on it and it has help up well, but during WAM war my Plumbers Goop broke away from the trigger and instead of putting more on it I thought Epoxy putty would work better. So I need to know if Epoxy putting will bond to Plumbers Goop?

All that epoxy really needs is a rough surface to grip onto. Search "How To epoxy" it will teach you the ways of the adhesive. Epoxy putty is what is holding my LBB's trigger together.

They don't bond very well. At least, it didn't feel strong.

Dayko, try gooping a piece of metal to each piece, and JB weld that.

I can't put metal on the trigger. The whole thing is covered in Goop.

Thanks for answering my question. I'll most likely just put more Goop on the trigger, and keep it out of the heat ^_^ .

You could also try sanding down the goop. Then try some sort of plastics epoxy or putty.

If you can get the goop off use some adhesive that you have to mix. I use ace brand plastic adhesive and it is designed for plastics.

The last time I used plastic Epoxy, the pieces I was Epoxying didn't hold. I don't like that stuff. How should I sand it off? With my Dremel or just a piece of sand paper?

Ok, I have used quite a bit of plastic epoxy, and I know its strong as shit. Currently it is holding the plunger head to the rod in my ertl shotgun (stock spring + ls spring + bbb spring). Sand down the surface so it is ruff, put epoxy on both halves of the trigger, let it set for 1 minute, sandwich the 2 pieces together, and cover the sides with leftover epoxy.

Oh and do not let it come into contact with silicon lube or wb-40 (rouge, palm face). It seems to signifcantly weaken it.

*edit* Also buy a new tube of plastic epoxy, it seems to degrade over time. *edit*

It's a distinct possibility. But seriously, that's all you could come up with? You are a terrible Troll.

Thats what probably happened to mine. I used it once then let it sit for about a month before using it again.

I think he was trying to tell him to weaken it, so that he could get it off.

Take a blow torch and melt the plastic together. its dangerous, but a good last resort.

You can just sand it down with sand paper. If you have some acetone you can also take some of that and just rub it off. Kinda like a chemical sanding. Make sure to wear a mask and gloves when using acetone.
