So, I've had this DT3 for a while now. Worked fine yesterday, not today. The Arrow guns plunger refuses to stay caught on the pistols catch. It looks fine to me, but obviously it's not. Any ideas on what could have caused this and how to fix it?

Well first off this catch is extremely weak. Secondly the arrow part must be on the pistol part very well in my sinlged one I have it taped on and it works great. Also it you are missing the front orange piece that is located at the front of the pistol when its in the arrow part, if its not there it will not work.

As others said, its a weak catch. If you increase the power of the arrow shooter in any way ( stretching the srping, bands etc. ) it wont be able to hande the force. As already mentioned, you need to leave the orange thing on the front of the pistol to make sure it's in there nice and tight.

To fix the weak catch:

Go into your parts box and cut a small peace of plastic from a shell or scrap. You want a small flat square shaped peace. Glue that onto the barrel end of the catch sticking out of the top of the pistol. You may need to so some trial and error to get the right size and thickness. This will help give the arrow shooters catch more bight.

So, I cut the piece, and then glue it on the catch at the part closest to the barrel, correct? Cool, I'll try that.
