This mod is driving me nuts. I have been working on a rear-loading 1500 off and on for about 3 months now. I can't get the washers to seal with the flat hot glue surface on the back of the turret. I have tried everyting. I filled the space in between the barrels with hot glue, cut it flush with a razor blade. It is fine. I have tried washers, BBB arrows, micros cut down the middle and spread flat, nothing works. I always end up getting a seal that is worse than stock. I need a good seal because my darts are snug in PETG. I know many have pulled this off, so what did you do? I have searched, read every rear-loading 1500 thread, tried at least 5 different materials to make the seal. I'm out of ideas, so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Are you using a lubricant? I use white lithium grease and it works very well.

Try filling the space with epoxy putty instead. Sand down the front half of the turret until it rotates correctly and you have a good seal. Make sure you don't sand it down too far or it will seal like shit. This has worked for the last few 1500s I've done.

Basically what Ryan said, and also: If you DO sand it too much (like I did) it truly turns into shit, and theres no way to help that. Try a belt sander or a palm sander for sanding it evenly.

It's a distinct possibility. But seriously, that's all you could come up with? You are a terrible Troll.

May be a little off topic, but I didn't use a hot glue flat surface, nor did I use a washer.

Gets around 95+ish last time I checked, but my dart barrel fit sucks.

Well, I am probably gonna have to try an improvised version of ChefDave's because I already have barrels in there. I think that if I put FBR in there, it should not be hard to poke out. I don't have a belt or palm sander, so the epoxy putty method would be risky.
Thanks for all the help guys, much appreciated.
