This is my way of fixing a broken Tech Target plunger Tube.

Materials Needed:

-Pillers
-Dremel
-6 inchs 1/2 inch PVC
-About 6 inchs of PETG
-Etape
-Goop
-Hot glue

Ok so what you first want to do is take apart the gun and see how your plunger tube I cracked, and if it was like mine the entire top part of the plunger tube was shattered. So what I did first was I dremeled around the inside so it could Fit PVC.

Then what I did was I wrapped the piece of PVC in a layer of Etape and then gooped it and shoved it in the plunger tube, (Make sure the plunger can still move all the way forward). Then I wrapped the PETG in Etape and shoved that in the PVC.

Then after that for some stability I hot glued around the etape, and then wrapped the entire end piece in Etape. For the final touch I removed the ridges on both side of shell so the PVC will fit in.

Reassemble it and you should have a really nice TTG.

Not a bad mod for a problem that probably plagues NF, TTG, Diskshot, etc
Advice:
Take pictures with lighting BEHIND the camera. Everything is really dark and hard to see. Won't get into the mechanics of how what you did is stupid, but suffice you will get better results otherwise.

Very nice mod, I haven't personally had it happen, but I wouldn't be surprised that it does. My brackets that hold the plunger tube inside the gun broke off, and I can't find any reinforcement washer things for it.
But I think that it is a very good job for something that would otherwise compromise your gun.
