So I saw FA_24's angel breech modification and saw that he used fishing glue to glue the orange nub and boltsled to the brass. I really don't want to buy fishin glue and was wondering how do you do the pull back mod? Do you glue the wire to (my wire can hold up to 90 pounds so I don't worry about that snapping) the end of the plunger with the indent (which I'm better of just buying fishin glue and not doing a pull back mod)? Or do you drill a hole and tie a knot through the hole. Or if there is something else I overlooked or forgot that you guys, the NIC do to do the pull back angel breech modification? Thanks in advance!

Fishing Glue is stronger than other cyanoacrylic glues, yadda, yadda. You can read all the claims at the web site. Krazy Glue, Plumber's Goop, Marine Epoxy all failed for me. Besides, the purpose of the write-up is to show what works - if you want to stray off the reservation, your mileage will likely vary.

Well I guess I'm better off buying fishing glue then.

I have found that Zap-a-gap works just fine for angel breeches along with JB-Weld, which can be found at ACE.

J-B Weld is the best thing for this. I tried three separate kinds of epoxies before J-B Weld, and they all broke with just a few primes.

I still want to do the pull back mod though. So please stop commenting on glue and inform me on how to do the pull back mod please.

Why don't you use the search function?

Maybe even oh I don't know THE MOD DIRECTORY?

For my Ls, I drilled a tiny hole in the back of the plunger rod and put a small screw in it for the wire to wrap around. I've also used just plain old gorilla super glue (on the nub thing) and it's held up fine.

You mean attaching something directly to the back of the plunger to prime it?

You, uh, attach something to the back of the plunger, drill a hole out the backside of the blaster for this thing to exit, and ... you're done.

Look, if you can't think of three different ways to do that based on just the description above, put the longshot pieces back in the box, put the box on a shelf, and find something a little more basic to mod.

There are enough busted LS out there because someone thought they could mod one before learning better. (I should know - I contributed at least one to that pile.)
