Buzzbee Big Blast Trigger Repair?
Posted 10 November 2008 - 09:48 PM
The break isn't clean, the plastic got stressed then broke. I searched, and only found Bobs, repair which is in a different place, and blackfox's plastic repair, which won't work too well because there isn't enough plastic to staple. Any ideas are appreciated.

I used superglue to tack the pieces back together then lightly sanded both the area to be reinforced and the strip of metal. Then apply superglue, lots of it, clamp it down and let cure overnight. I also extended the metal to the first rib/ridge on the part your finger rests on and added a bit of superglue to the edges of the metal afterwards. It's held up fine even at 20 pumps. And don't forget to round the edges of the metal by the finger area.
Edit: The strip of metal is actually from a steel cookie tin, a great source of sheet metal.

Generally, a picture of just the broken part and nothing else, will help.
What's with the popsicle sticks?
What else is going on in that picture?
If you're using this outside of the normal shell, there would seem to be little reason to even stick to the original trigger, so you could just bend up some metal with a couple of pairs of needle-nose pliers. One of my favorite sources of raw metal is the bars from hanging file folders, but in this case even a heavy paperclip might do.
