Did this and wow did it prove to me wonders. Thank you sputnik for supplying me with the correct washers and whatnot, some worker had to help me find it because all the labels were ALSO mixed up; thank god he worked there for 32 years.

I'm like 90% sure that you got the size of the cpvc addition wrong. Because I just tried 3/4 of an inch and it was way to long. I ended up cutting it down to approx 1/4".

Would this be possible to do in any plunger gun? What sort of increments in OD do rubber washers come in?



Not sure why I missed this before, but yes, to some degree. Last week I actually used a piece of 1-1/4" Brass sink tailpipe (1-1/4 inch OD) as a replacement plunger tube for a Lanard Firstshot. I used a 1-1/4" rubber washer, and it works quite well. I was very happy with the results of 50-60 feet from a 3" cpvc barrel.

Two things: Would a nightfinder spring work?, and Would vaseline (don't know if I spelled that right) be a good alternative to silicon lube? ^_^

In addition to the LS spring, yes. But it's under powered. No! Do NOT use any petroleum based lubricants. Even vaseline.

Some days I just have to wonder if the inability to retain that vital information might be a genetically inherited trait.



Hahaha! That's hilarious! I find that the best lubricants tend to be those that best match the original equipment stuff present in the plunger tubes... ^_^ Best not to fuck with anything else.
