So bassically I intergrated my longshot with my Rf20.

now there is air leaking out of the bladder of the Rf20 and ive done everything i can think of to fix it. I think if i go in and i Duct tape the entire airflow system shut it will fix it.

but i dont want to do anything before i brake it, so ya any ideas are welcome!

I notice that you've used some capitalization and punctuation, for which I am greatful. That said, it seems that there is some confusion about where these things belong in a sentance structure. It's much easier to read if you capitalize the first letter in every sentance. Not only will people take your posts more seriously, but you'll also be in line with our code of conduct and I won't have to erase your mi...suspend your account.

Is it leaking out of the over pressure valve in the back, or over the bladder fittings?

If it's leaking over the bladder fittings, try using a zip tie. Wrap it around the leaking connection twice (two loops - 720 degrees) before ziping it tight so it has doubble contact around the entire fitting. Duct tape probalby won't help.

Ok, Thanks. I dont know for sure if its in the tube or the bladder. When I pump it it usually just leaks out.
I'm not sure if its a normal problem or if its something that is just me. Thanks though! I'll try that first.

I would guess it to be the large barbed fitting that the bladder clamps over. That's a common place for them to leak after being opened. Submerge the bladder under water when you pump and look for bubbles. That will tell you where the leak is. (Or just try the zip tie first and see if that fixes it. It would probably take you longer to fill the sink than zip tie the fitting.)

Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

Is a "sentance" the same thing as a "sentence"? Just curious, because I don't think my Merriam-Webster dictionary is lying.

If the air is leaking out of the actual bladder, it's completely repairable via adhesive or possible patching. If it is leaking out of the actual plastic hardware, though, you may want to look in to replacing the piece(s).

Hehe, that was as polite as I've been in a while. Which part of punctuation and capitalization do homonyms fall under, anyway? Truth be told, I've always been a terrible speller, and my penchant for posting with my thumbs doesn't do me any favors. So I thought I'd go back and see how many times I've actually corrected a member's spelling on these forums. I found one. There certainly could be more out there, but I couldn't find them with a cursory search. You could definitely find more typos of mine. Point is, your criticism lacks teeth and, more importantly, humor. I usually have much less of a problem with being made fun of if there's actually some fun involved. Look, I remember our irc conversation, and I know you're still sore about that whole word filter business. If it makes you feel any better, you're the most effeminate loser I know.

Ho Ho! I sense soem tension brewing! Fight Fight Fight! :wacko:


Plastic parts, especially those in nerf guns can be repaired with heat and pressure. They have plastic welding guns that essentially blow a hot stream of air over a focused point to remelt plastic. The most common place for these cracks is along the seam where they were molded. If the plastic is in fact to blame, I would hit it with a propane torch just enough to make it barely malty, then put your bladder or hose back in and squeeze it with a pair of pliers.

Or just throw epoxy putty at it until it looks like a bondo-PJ car.

I would suggest submerging it in water and looking for bubbles.
That's the easiest way to detect leaks.
