Hey Guys,

 

So finally getting all the parts i wanted for my own Retaliator along with the Yokiko "Worker" Clear pump action kit (Forgive my spelling) and installing everything and calling it a day. but recently i like many others have likely suffer a piece of the internal shell that holds the rubber padding as snapped so i thought ok bit of superglue should be ideal.. but sadly it was only temporary. so the parts i have are:

 

1. Artifact Metal Bolt-Sled in Blue  

2. OMWs Breech tube.

3. OMWs Stage 1 kit being the 5kg Spring, Catch plate and the back plate 

 

so i've decided, in the future to buy another one.. not my ideal choice but a learn from my errors choice. So like before i come seeking advice and ideas i could add to learn from this.

 

Kind Regards.

So the blaster shell's rubber/plastic retainers for the plunger tube broke, right? This is fairly common in retaliators. 

Example image: http://4.bp.blogspot..._1050_small.jpg

Take copious amount of steel epoxy putty, lightly sand the inside of the shell for better adhesion, and create a new retainer. This stops the plunger tube from moving too far forward and takes a sizable amount of stress from the spring being fired. I'm not really sure where you can find that in the UK, but it can't be that hard to find.

Yeah, the plastic on the Sonic Ice is awful. I broke mine in two different spots that weren't even taking the stress of the spring. Highly annoying.

Repair the one you have! Much cheaper and the aesthetic damage won't be super bad with putty.
