It may be best to just sell it for scrap and get a new one.
I don't know, I may just be full of it and this could lead to one of those fabled <70' ranged Recons.
But I too am now intrueged and if you do manage to get 'er up and running again, please post your results, I have a zillion Recons and love 'um like...uummm...everything that came to mind to finish that was vulgar, so I'll just shut up now.

Once again the main reason I started this thread was to get ideas on a better seal than simple duct tape. E-tape may be an option but my supply has run dry. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thank You Bob, Saladin and BRF726 for your suggestions.

I ditched the bolt entirely. I have CPVC coming out of the stock barrel which is linked to a minimized t coupler. The T coupler acts as a bolt and pushes the prime indicator back via another piece of CPVC. My problem is I don't know how to seal up the dead space between the cpvc and the prime indicator. I'll try some tape again and get back to you guys.
If you are talking about a first-gen Recon, without the black sleeve over the back end, then there isn't any dead space back there. It's a separate compartment that is already sealed. There is a relatively large dead volume in the bolt, but that is why the Recons suck... There is no way to fix that.

I've done it. But I can't really tell you if it helps the ranges, because I added an extra spring(as in powerstock) after I had done it. What I can tell you is that MY recon is maxing out at 65feet(yes, that is slightly angled, but less than 10º).
As for the seal to the plunger tube, use some sort of glue before you tape your cpvc in.

Don't worry so much about what other people will allow. Throw your own wars and kick your friends' asses until they all want one.

I tried dremeling out the back piece of the bolt (The piece that fit into the "prime indicator") it seemed to work fin the CPVC fit very well into it and it primed well. I got 45 feet flat but after a couple of primes the range began to steadily decrease. It really flucuates now. I just don't feel like working on it anymore. As a prop gun it is actaually kinda cool. Thank you for all the help but I think my recon was screwed to begin with. I did however get some success out of my newest recon. 45 feet with no AR removal. I swear this is not bs. I haven't opened it up yet and it already gets close to 50 feet. However, since it is totally stock it may just be the streamlines carrying.
