I am currently working on an Angel Breech and came across the problem that the left part of my breech was to far to the right (the lip was protruding). I foolishly didn't check before I super glued it into the dart chamber with Gorilla Glue (I don't recommend, It foams). Therefore, i was wondering how I can remove the left part of the breech from the dart chamber.
Thanks

Gorilla glue? Thats some heavy duty stuff. Your best bet is to Dremel/Sand or use a razor blade to get it out.

How do you dremel it if its connected on the inside of the dart chamber?

Cut the brass if it isnt that important to you, or maybe try to heat the brass to melt the glue.

There's no solvent you can use that will selectively remove only the super glue. Whatever will dissolve super glue, will also dissolve the plastic parts.

Should I just single the Longshot then? If so I'll need an additional spring if someone wants to sell me one.

First try nail polish remover.

I know it's much more gravitated to paint removal, but I've had luck at least loosening super glue. And it's relatively plastic-safe.

And try dipping it in boiling water.

I haven't tried it myself, but I remember a model-making tutorial on Games Workshop's site that mentioned putting the pieces into the freezer to make the superglue brittle before trying to seperate them.

I can imagine the outcome of that.
Roommate: Why the fuck is some metal and plastic in the freezer!
You: Um, It's my angel breech.
Roommate: Then why is it in the fridge?
That would be a intresting conversation.


Wow that was not the least bit funny.

Wouldn't putting it in the freezer significantly shrink the brass? Just wondering before I try it.

The kind of nail polish remover you want would be pure acetone. Which is not plastic safe, it will start to dissolve it, but as long as you try to keep it away from plastic and quickly remove any acetone that does come in contact with the plastic, you should be fine.

No. Not significantly. Besides, don't you want it to come off?

True. How long should I keep it in overnight our just an hour?

You said you used Gorilla glue correct? If so I dont think freezing it will do much, try dipping it in boiling water.

Not that it matters any more but will that completely trash the plastic?

Gorrilla glue is stronger than most plastic. I recommend a hammer.

So can I not do anything with my longshot now that my dart chamber is welded to a piece of brass?

I wouldnt say that I used to make Bows so I used gorilla glue all the time, it comes off fine with a knife you should try to use an exacto blade.

But its inside the dart chamber so I can't reach it. Any other suggestions would be helpful.

Cut the brass above where the gorrilla glue is and do whatever every body told to to try.

No one answered how long to freeze, if it won't do anything than it doesn't matter.

Wait, what do you mean by you glued it to the "dart chamber"? Is this the black piece in the plunger tube? The orange bolt nub?

It's the far left piece in the internals, where in an angel breech you glue in your barrel and breech lip.

Heat will loosen the super glue. I've used a heat gun and pliers. Heat everything up, and then grab the bolt nub and twist.

Would blowdryer/oven/microwave do any good? I don't have a heat gun.
