Found this blaster and it wouldn't catch so I opened it up.

It looks as if the tension spring was just to much for the poor old plastic to hand. My question is this, has anyone repaired this break before? I found pictures and info about the blaster here and it looks like this is a common problem.

It is difficult to tell from the pictures... Is it just the post that broke? That is a relatively simple repair if it is. Just use a tube or post of the correct diameter and screw it in place, preferably from both sides of the shell.

I can't remember what happened to mine exactly, I think another piece broke while I was trying to fix that post. Definitely run the post through both sides of the shell though, if you just do one I'm pretty sure it will warp the plastic around it. The springs are beastly for how weak the plastic is.

Where the post attaches to the shell is where it is broken. It is wide at the shell, and then gets smaller where it goes through the catch mech. At the widest part it also where the tension spring wraps around. I suppose a bolt running through the whole blaster would work if I rigged something up to hold the spring in the correct place, but I really wanted to maintain the look of the stock blaster.

I tried just epoxy or gluing the post back in first, it doesn't work. You should be able to get away with just a tiny bit of metal on the outside, but it's pretty much necessary.
