First I'd like to say: I'm sorry if I came/ will come off as a jerk, I don't mean to flame.
ice, I will answer this. I think you mean a piece of PVC in a tee on the Angel Breech. 2 reasons. 1, PVC is a bitch to fix compared to ABS, and 2, the bolt couldn't go back far enough with it on.
Ok, I came up with this because alot of people have given up on longshots due to there weak boltsleds, and here's a reason for them not to. I myself own 10 longshots (most of them gifts for x-mas and b-day), so I got tried of them breaking as well. This is an extremely simple mod, and it still lets the clip work, but it can also be applied to cpvc longshot, which is what I did it for. For a regular longshot chamber, simply cut the tab off the chamber where the bolt sled attaches to, and epoxy in a 1/2 pvc pipe. All you have to do is pull back on the bar to prime it. But, as I said, I cpvc'ed it. So here's what I did.
Sorry, I will agree that yes, PVC is a bitch to fix, but I'm not sure about the bolt not going back far enough.
This is to keep the ability to use magazines, not to single it.
I'd post the link if I could find it, but what I mean is that you make a bolt out of wood and attach it to the top-boltsled-barrel-connector piece, so it still uses clips.
In the original post, he said that he was tired of the glue snapping under the stress.
Wait... what? I mean one of these
, as I recall there is no glue involved, or bolt-sled.
Again, I seriously don't mean to flame.
EDIT: Oh, THAT glue, for the
I just sawed that piece off, with the entire barrel segment, then I dremeled down the inside so that it would slide nicely over the brass.
