    This happens to the hornet, I have 3 all rubbish, to fix it I wouldn't have a clue. It has a very high failure rate.

    If you buy buzzbee you are wasting money*, hornets are quite unreliable, I think I'm the luckiest guy to own one as it actually works. Just don't buy a hornet again, if you want a hornet-type gun that works, get a big salvo, they're pretty good.

    *Except for the few good buzzbee guns

    Ok well your going to have to open the gun and strip it of everything EXCEPT the insides that dont come apart.

    Now do you see that pump (the green one) pull that out of the tube (plunger if you want) and look down the other side.

    Do you see the holes? Now fill em with hot glue making sure to only glue the one on top and the ones on the sides.

    Now that your plug is pumped look for like a orange T it should be just above/ behind the barrels. It is the firing pin.

    Pull this out and put it back in but only this much ( before -) T now grab 1 rubber band and put one side of the rubber band on the left side of the T and pull it over to somewhere its going to catch.

    this makes the hornet pretty damn awesome but it just means you dont have it in a shell.

    firing- pump 20 times and then pull the T towards you. pull fast for it to shot all six shots in a rapid blast.

    pump the air up in then put in a bath tub full of water and see if there are any air leaks.

    if there are fill them with hot glue

    @coolcam hot glue is likley to melt the tubing.

    Honestly your best chance is to return this blaster because even when its working its not very powful or reliable.

    Buy a Signal Launcher with the refund,
