This is very simple, and Im sure that someone else has thought of it before, but I didn't see a post so here it is:

The orange priming handles on the longstrike and longshot (I assume it is the same) will tend to wear out and not hold on very well after a while (or after you have opened up the blaster a few times).

This can be fixed very simply with a screwdriver, something to cut with, a small zip tie, and some superglue.

First take the priming hadle apart (the single one, not the one with the bar in it)
then wrap a zip tie around the part that clips to the bar (make it a little bit tighter than it was)

test fit it before doing anything else (you may have to slide the zip tie off to remove it, just make sure you dont change the size of it)

when the zip tie is off superglue it in place and trim off the extra part. When the superglue is dry slide it back on and you are done with that half. (the zip tie is glued separately so it can be easily removed if you need to)
Then take the other half (the outside piece) and remove part of the inner cylinder (just so that the big square part of the zip tie will fit inside)
I used needle nosed pliers for this step, a knife isn't really necessary

Then put it all back together, you shouldnt have any more problems with the handle falling off.

This is a great idea! I modded a longstrike for a guy at the war I attend, and the primming handle kept falling off. I will definitly have to do this to his gun. Thanks!
