If you're able to, just buy a new stock plunger. I believe Remedy Metal sells stock LS hardware.

Well I live in South Africa so shipping fees would be horrendous, so is there anyway to fix it?

You all have very good points, so I thank you. For the moment elite blasters must stay stock (power wise only) , I must then ask which is more powerful, elite or vortex? I saw a rather lengthy article on this, but it was still undecided? (I would be considering the pyragon vs the rampage, for small to medium indoor wars)

Im away at the moment, and can't check. But I did re-lube it,and it is still the stock spring. I think there could be a problem with the PH, but can't check at the moment if it was due to scratches inside the PT, how could I remedy this problem? Thanks

Whatever blasters they own. All of the Elite blasters are very simple and easy to understand. If someone owns multiple blasters, say a Firestrike and a Retaliator, you could show him how to modify the simpler blaster (Firestrike) first.

As far as the community leaders not allowing modified blasters at their wars, just host your own wars at some large area, where modified blasters have an easily seen advantage. Then people will want to modify their blasters so that they can gain the upper hand. This is where modding originated—someone modified his blaster to shoot harder so he could have an advantage. Once the others began to be demolished by this person at wars, they modified their own blasters out of necessity. It was the same way with homemades. Once one person uses a homemade, everyone else has to use them to keep up. It's all escalation. (This is a somewhat simplified explanation, but I'm sure you get the point.)

Thank you, your logic is very sound. The community is about 10 strong and me and 2 other guys essiently moderate it, I think I will stage a larger than regular scale battle for them to showcase the mods. The only problem is that we all have very different blasters so I may just have to destroy them a couple of times to convince them..... Thanks again :)

You are correct. It is getting a horrbile seal and the air is escaping everywhere else but where it needs too.

Well, after sealing the rim it still works horribly, Could this be due to scratches in the PT? It was a very.... Ghetto attempt. Any help greatly appreciated
