Alright, I've PETG'd the barrels, but it only gets about 5 feet. The only problem I've found it that the plunger head and plunger tube have a bad seal, can anyone help me fix this? (If pics are needed I'll try to get them up.)

Is it fear or courage that compels you?

Electrical tape sucks, do the job correctly with teflon tape.

Teflon tape is a white tape used in plumbing to make a seal between two threaded pipes.

Wrap electrical tape around the center stub in the cone so that it pushes out the rubber, works way better than wrapping it around the outside.

The same thing happened to me with a nightfinder. The only thing I can think other than tape it is an new or double o-ring and lube it.

Wow, other than flashflint, most of the people trying to give advice in this thread have no idea what the internals of a Warthog are like.

It doesn't use o-rings.

The warthog has rubber cup washers on the end of the plunger rods. Unfortunately for you there's nothing you can do to improve the seal on them.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?
