    If you glue it, I will reimburse you the cost of materials and etc and what shipping would have cost sending it back.

    For feedback for sellbuddy:

    If you log in you have an option to leave feedback. You also received an email on purchase (Check your junk folders)> That has a link to the feedback page for this transaction.

    If you did NOT register, you can still leave feedback, and after you register it will find any feedback that was left for your email (before you registered) and apply them to your account. Regroactive feedback restoration is not automated atm, its manual but will be automatic when the system goes live.

    Registration and use is free, forever, selling one thing at a time is free. Forever. The use of the mass selling tools comes with a subscription, but that's because I have to pay the bandwidth/server/storage to deliver the images millions of times all over the world. But its not necessary to have a paid account. Ever.

    In the future there will be:
    A garage sale app (Can put multiple items for sale in one ad
    A invoice app (A way to invoice people, pay it, and receive feedback for the transaction whether its buy sell, work for hire, etc. )
    Facebook and twitter feeds/plugins to integrate seamlessly.
    Shopping cart plugins to share/buy/sell/feedback through the major freeware shopping carts all over the internet.

    I have invested a lot into this idea. More than any of you could fathom. Patents. 2000 hours of programming. So all feedback is welcome and taken very seriously.

    I will just glue it and don't worry about any reimbursement, it's fixable so it's not a big deal. Will regular superglue work or should I use something else like gorilla glue?

    Fixing the tips is simple, BUT youll need to do something.

    Where it breaks, will be a lip. Because there is a groove there below the barrels gnarled texture and the guns tip. Youll want to sand that off (of the tip and the gun) so you can glue flat to flat. I can take a pic when I get home. Its a simple fix. but annoying. I have also had people use a litte dowel rod in there to make it stronger. And two part epoxy.

    Super glue does work well on these guns.

    A pic would be great. I was thinking of using a dowel rod or something like that.

    I don't have any more til I get rubber. But let me explain this with a photoshop pic.

    The gun tip has an indention under the tip. That spot is inherently a 'break' line. Like if you scored plastic and broke it, its magic. I have broken a lot of these.

    I take the gun at the break, sand down the gun side and the tip side (pic 3) and then glue it back together like 4.

    The tip ends up having a full all the way around edge to glue on and it rarely breaks here again. If you are concerned, you hollo w alittle foam out, and use a dowel on each side and epoxy. You can do it with the dowel and epoxy and glue it without sanding off the break point (2) and it will hold, but a dowel and picture 4, is the best.

    I use a plastic pen instead of a dowel, super glue bonds to plastic better than wood.

    Cool. Mine actually broke where the shaft and the tip meet. I am just going to sand the two pieces and insert a pen (good idea) and glue them together with double bubble (5 minute epoxy).

    It will be more stable that way. Im sorry it broke in the mail. The person I am having help me ship didn't understand how to wrap the cardboard around the barrel and tape it. Mis communication. Wont happen again.

    Dude, no worries. I will fix it, so it's not a big deal. I would use bubble wrap instead of paper to wrap the sidearm though.

    Holy hell. Well, same deal, if you want to fix it, Ill cover the price of materials etc. If you want to send it back, Ill send you another. I am cutting silicone from that area of the mold, so it will essentially look just like a repaired tip from now on. it is just a weak point in the design when casting and there isn't much else I can do.

    So essentially youll get the same gun, without that groove (it wil look as if it was filled in with weld because of the cut.

    As always let me know, and I apologize.

    Mike

    Stormrider- this thing is awesome! I finally got around to cleaning it up last night and noticed that it isn't broken, it just needed to be cleaned up then screwed on.
    It is rediculously light and I am so happy I bought it. Great products, service, and prices. You have a customer for life.

    Thanks vultana, glad you like it. It has its flaws, some cleanup, but it wont pull your pants down when you have your costume on, that's what I like the best about it
