When I opened up my stormfire, I was really upset over how there was an overwhelming amount of glue sealing the barrel to the plunger chamber. However, I thought back on other methods that other people used to unglue the glue and remembered one:

Step 1: Boil Water

Step 2: Pour the boiling water into a cup.

Step 3: Put the plunger chamber assembly into the cup of boiling water. Make sure that the boiling water is covering the glue. Leave it in there for a few minutes.

Step 4: Take it out (be careful of the hot water) and just wiggle pull and it should come right off.

I have realized that I have post under wrong topic. Please do not tell me to switch it. I am trying to figure that out now.

Can't the hot water deform the plunger tube?

The yellow balls are also slightly smaller in diameter than the green ones.

That's nice, but I just drilled strait trough the ar. easy and no hot water needed. But wait, wouldn't putting sovelet (sp.?) weld into hot water make Brain cell killing fumes?

Probably not, I don't think most plastics melt that low, but don't boil it for a super long amount of time then squeeze it with pliers or anything. So long as you're fairly gentle with it while it's hot, you should be ok.

No.


A good method, I'd skip the cup though and just hold the piece in the pot rather than fuss with a plastic cup, less chance of spillage that way.

Boiling water will loosen up a lot of the glues found on nerf guns, doing the same thing with an AT2K turret works well, the barrels can be pulled right out after a few seconds in the water.
