Hello sorry if im breaking any rules, if I am just let me know. But anyway I just finished painting my wipeout just to find out my dog chewed up the priming lever. Is there any ways you guys could think of to make a new one? I was thinking wood, my stepdad has all kinds of wood working stuff. So could i get some ideas or Pictures of just the priming handle. (and i need to make the metal peice on it to) Or does anyone have one I can buy?

Did your dog just chew the handle? if he did you could probably glue and slip a length of PVC over the chewed part, or you can look for some stuff to make one out of.

You probably crossed the line at giving yourself "Airsoft Guy 777" as your username.

Doing this as I speak. I have no idea when I got it...my DAD got it some 15 years ago, but that doesn't matter. Anyways, it keeps jerking around all over the place. I try to hold it with a rag...It doesn't look like...much.

Yeah, I'd think you could hit up a dollar store or thrift shop to find something.

Essentially, a wipeout or pistol splat gun is no different from a standard pullback springer, because when you are pulling up on the lever, a metal rod is pulling back the priming rod. An easy, tested, method would be to make it pullback. Open it up, fasten some sort of rod the the actual priming rod, and you can have it prime like a nitefinder, and be able to band it. I have done this, simply out of curiosity, and it works surprisingly well.

For sure, most likely tomorrow or the next day, and I will remember to post it here or pm you, I am currently cramming for a math mid-term, so I cannot exactly take a picture. I will also be bringing it to BAFF 5.

HOTH, just to let you know, the springs in wipeout guns are VERY powerful. I don't think any of us here would be able to prime it, with the exception of a few body builders we have here. Thats why they have a lever, to make priming easy.

Thats what i was thinking. Besides what would you use to pull it back? I would think most things would just snap.

And compound im getting the box tommorow.

I have done it, with cpvc and a cpvc tee, and it really was not that hard to prime. I'm a teenager, not a bodybuilder. Blue, I'm not home right now, at a hotel, so a picture will be up soon, sorry.

How can you say it's impossable to do something when the guy said he did it and it works fine, can you not read?

Apparently not as well as you, because I completely missde the part where he says he's done it on the wipeoout/pistol splat.

I'm not a body builder and I don't have much trouble at all priming a pistol splat without the lever.

my pistol splat broke recently, I'd be happy to give you the priming lever if you pay postage.
Sorry if this post breaks any rules.

I think Talio is my mother. He's abusive, swears a lot and probably likes to binge drink.

Just kidding guys, my mother is actually quite nice.
