I've put Angel Breaches on several longshots now, and all of them have had this problem: the little orange nub that attaches to the brass breach always breaks off. I've tried a variety of adhesives: Fishin' Glue, other cyanoacrylate super glues, plumber's goop, and JB Weld. So far, the JB Weld seems to have worked the best - my longshot has yet to break with it. However, I did the same thing for my friend's longshot, and it didn't last more than a week or two. The fishin' glue, which I specially ordered for this purpose, broke as I was reattaching the nub to the bolt sled, before I even managed to prime it. Using more of the bolt to attach the new breach has also not helped.
Thus, my question is this: what am I missing? Is there some technique that I need to prevent the bond from breaking? Some ridiculously strong glue that can stand up to the forces put on that tiny nub? Any help would be appreciated.

Winning rounds is rewarding, deal with it. We don't play fucking patty cake over here.

I used to have that issue with the small bolt attachment nub in the original angel breech mod, its okay for lower strength springs, but when heavier springs are used, the small attachment point tends to snap off after some usage.
Like what andtheheros mentioned, i also use a design with larger adhesive contact area between the bolt attachment and the brass bolt too.
You can refer to my Longshot brass breech guide which shows an example of how the larger bolt attachment contact area is done:
I use Selleys Super Strong 2-part Epoxy glue (clamped with 3-day cure time) with the larger bolt attachment contact area, and so far i have been able to use spring loads up to 20kg+ (along with reinforced boltsleds) and the attachment still holds.
