Hey all. Just as a note before I start, I searched for glue and almost every topic came up, ever. So, I decided to start a topic on it in and of itself.

Okay, basic question is, what kind of glue do you use, for anything? I'm trying to do a barrel and stock mod on my BBB, but I'm afraid the stock is gonna tank as soon as pick the gun up. So, do you guys have any recommendations? To provide my own input, this is what I've used hrough time: 3M Superglue Gel, JB Weld, hotglue (only for darts though, or as a secondary sealer/shock absorber), Devcon "Plastic Welder," and that cheap superglue you can find anywhere.

I used the Devcon on my Tornado to fix the cocking handle/rod problem, and it finally popped after a month (this also had a hanger wire for reinforcement), and now I'm using it to make a stock on my BBB. It didn't quirt seem to want to stick though, so I'm a little worried it won't stay. I'm using PVC and gluing it to the inside of the gun a good 3 inches or so, in that tube-thing underneath where the "scope" is.

So yeah, post results and opinions about the glue you use. Keep petty arguing to a minimum, if you can. Thanks a lot for any posts and help.

I use hotlgue supported with a layer of duct tape, and a tight two layers of electrical on everything. Ive had guns done that way and have held for 3 years ( I redid most of my guns to add couplers/different barrels ).

I used epoxy on my LNL and it worked like a charm,use epoxy though you need to wait before tampering with what you put the epoxy on.

As enticing as epoxy might sound, it doesn't create a great seal, or shall I say, a lasting one.

Use Plumber's Goop. It's like epoxy, only you can afford for it to bend because it's much more flexible and it creates an awesome seal.

Hotglue and goop are good, they make decent seals and the goop remains flexible after it drys.

Gorilla glue is pretty good. Nice and strong, easier to work with than super glue.

My favorite stuff is still duct tape tho. It holds stuff together and lasts forever. Its a classic.

What glue I use depends on the application in question. For air tight seals I use Goop, or a silicon based gule such as liquid nails. For repairing/permanent bonding of plastic I use epoxy. For darts, reenforcement and attaching parts I might need to remove later hot glue does the trick.

I've had some bad luck with (5 min set) expoxy. Holding my crayola barrels onto the barrel assembly for my NFs proved to be too much for the stuff, even wrapped with e-tape and after the package-recomended 24 hour "cure" time. I would recomend (sorry about spelling) using several glues, if you can afford the extra space. IE, to solve my problem, I expoxied (for like, the third time), coated in a good layer of hot glue, followed with an e-tape wrap. It's held up so far.

I use hotglue to get my barrel on place (so you don't have to hold the barrel on while you wait for goop to dry) and then after the hotgl;ue dries I put on a layer of goop over the hotglue, sealing the hotglue and holding the barrel tighter.

I've been doing this for a long time and everytime I do, well, that gun still has a good barrel seal.

im hardcore AND USE COCK. I mean caulk. It seals really nice and smells really nice. Especially that silicon stuff that smells like petroleum like goop except 10x worse/better.
