    Quite p.o'd, first of all my Recon was shooting. This was a while ago.
    Next minute... Stopped firing. Then....
    The back of the recons plunger tube breaks. I had padding on the inside and out? =Not working.

    Do I get a new plunging tube?

    What did you break exactly ? The plunger itself or the PT ?

    Most common breakages in reverse plunger system blasters are the plungers themselves. In a recon, I'm assuming that's what broke.

    You need to replace it - ever considered getting an aluminium plunger ?

    Or you can get one of those OMW kits. lol

    Or just buy a Longshot. Up to you though - most people with broken recons shove an airtank inside it.

    The back of the plunging tube broke.The plunger therefore pokes through. I might stick a BBUMB tank in there if worst comes to worst. It is possible that I buy some aluminium pieces. But I don't want to buy OMW stuff, as I heard it breaks and I don't know anyone one who sells those parts.Link? Thanks.

    Do you post anything other than links to the FB selling group Acerised? I mean I'm all for it but this is getting kinda silly.

    Abyss, have a look at the BT plunger . It's expensive, but it works.

    Padding is only ever a precautionary measure, certainly not an iron clad prevention. Presumably you were running an aftermarket spring? Dry fire it at all?

    Due to my internet being capped, I can't find the video I used, but there is a way of repairing them by using a Buzz Bee shotgun shell, chopping, gluing, and some minor mods to make it work. Not as good as a replacement but it works.

    You could always attempt to repair it with a polycarbonate disk. Just cut one to size and screw n epoxy it in place.

    If you're wondering. Padding is NOT sufficient. If you just chucked it down the plunger tube and expected it to work. It won't. Felt pads have very limit shock absorption. Rubber pads work best. Rememebr to 3 day epoxy the plunger padding. That will ensure strength and cushioning.

    Checked it, will think about, if worst comes to worst i shall do this. No aftermarket spring. It use to fire, for the first day or so, but then it stopped completely, I only 'dry-fired' it twice. Thanks for the input.

    I'll search for it, but I need a shotgun shell so I may have to wait a bit. Luckily I have patience. Tar.

    Interesting, a possible answer to my problem, thanks!

    Man I should have heard that earlier, too little to late.With my '5-minute' epoxy, I lost the tube that it files through (So went off it.). I weirdly have a thing where I hate to use glue, but yeah should of listened, thanks.

    Well. All it takes is the epoxied padding and epoxied 10cent coin. Although technically according to Sairex it's a federal offense to defaced the currency. Lol, so you can find a washer alternative

    I used this method on my Recon nearly two years ago. It worked for a while and I guess with a bit of effort you could get a semi-decent result. Personally I wouldn't bother though, there's just not enough surface area to get a nice bond and it won't ever be as strong as it was prior to breaking.

    My one is still running fine. Although I'd recommend the polycarb disk.
