The plunger is made of a wooden dowel, which is why I am posting this here. I have seen two or three nf plungers put together, ut since mine boke I had to use a wooden dowel.
This is my first paintjob. The black is black spraypaint and the red and orange are acrylic paints. I need comments on the paintjob the most becuase this is what I need to work on the most. It's a little rough around the edges, but I think it turned out well.
I used to build legos and post them on another forum, so that is why I still use Brickshelf.com.
Links were the best I could do because I don't know how to resize pics.

But it does have the Mata Nui symbol, though a bit crudely drawn. I guess that's a loop hole.
I belong to a Lego forum too, and, just so you know, you should NEVER post anything but Legis on Brickshelf. It's against the rules.

Anyway, I'm curious as to how well the wooden dowel catches, and how is it weight wise compared to the original plunger? Xeo tried to make the triple nf, and holy shit was the entire project a failure. Not his fault though, the design called for some rough edges. Anyway, a good plunger rod substitute would be nice.

The plungers catches everytime becuase instead of just a compression spring I added an extension spring(not sure about the name) to it. I put the spring on the catch plate then put it on the screw that holds the trigger in. I'm not sure about the weight difference, but it works fine for me.
