    This twitter post may interest some people
    I have also smoothed down the trigger catch part without any apparent problems

    Works fine with the stock spring havnt tried a stronger spring yet

    That looks pretty sweet mate. Did you keep the thread length the same, or make it longer? Either way, a bit of thread-locker and it should be fairly strong.

    Cheers,

    Oh that looks nice. How does the weight of this compare with the stock plunger rod?

    I'm using a 15mm M3 to bolt it together which I think is longer then stock screw. The plastic ring at the end will break long before that becomes a problem
    I'll have to weigh them, it is a solid aluminium rod.

    As for the other part to stop the back plate stripping, I will trade the rod for a long shot for the longshot plunger tube as I'll have to break it first to do any testing

    Heavier and it destroys the plastic brace infront of the plunger tube, I'll have to lighten it a bit. I'm thinking of making some piece to be used to bolt the rear plate to the front and then to also be screwed through the case. There should be enough room between the sled pulled back and the tube too add something.

    The plastic nub also needs to be replaced with brass as it is another weak point.
    How is the brass breech tubing connected to the sled?

    Would probably be easier to just remake the tube, caps and plunger and just bolt it to the case. Where is the cheapest place to get a long shot?
    The breech becomes useless so also need to make them, any one willing to supply some?
    Will also most likely need a different sized o-ring if anybody knows where to buy them?

    I could possibly supply a brass breech, and a replacement o-ring...

    looks like i will be doing some major shell re-inforcements when i get the alu plunger rod then.

    as for the weak point of the plastic nub, i was going to make my own nub out of steel and silver solder it onto my brass breech. this should fix the problem.

    I will bore out the rod a bit to lessen the weight
    For reinforcement I'd suggest a bolt and nut right through the case directly in-front of the the plastic brace above the plunger


    As for the nub exactly, plan to make them out of brass then you just need to align it correctly and solder to the breech

    However excluding breech, i can resell someone elses if they want, it should be possible and not too expensive to make the entire lot from sled to trigger catch

    The tricky part will be drilling holes in the casing at the right spots
