Hello again everyone...
So I'm tearing into some mods... I recently thrifted a Nerf Airtech 2000 ($2 dolla no holla) and want to modify the barrels to accept modern darts by removing the AR's and posts, as well as plugging the over-pressure relief valve, but in order to do so the way I want to (cleanly) I have to disassemble the blaster.
Unfortunately, the shell section that the plunger rod passes through is solvent-welded (as described by Drac in his vids) to the shell and is not two-piece.
In his videos Drac mentions methods for separating solvent welded parts (aka the "boiling water" method) but I have yet to see anyone elaborate on how this is done or demonstrate it aside from crudely prying things apart. I'm also interested in modding a Demolisher and again this would be useful in this regard.
Can anyone tell me how to separate this without damaging the gun/part? What about scoring the part in-line with the shell halves so it will separate, rather than breaking it loose?
Thanks in advance,
