ok, here's the situation; i need a replacement part for my airsoft pistol
but i can't seem to find one anywhere, probably because nobody ever figured it would break and need replacing. the part that i need to replace is the small rubber piece that goes at the base of the inside of the barrel in the gun's inner workings. (i had to take my gun apart to get the thing out cuz it tore and a BB got jammed in there)
does anyone know where i can find a replacement part for this gun?

here's a view of the part i need to replace. it may not look like it but it's actually torn.

Tip, use the macro button on the camera to take close ups, it looks like a flower. Is that the piece that holds the bb in place until the spring generates enough pressure to blast it out? I think you can just replace it with a small o-ring, but if not, I think you can use a small diameter rubber tube cut to the right length, and epoxy it in place.

You could see if your hardware store carries silicone tubing the right size.
That is all.

An O ring wont work because one side of this rubber is over the barrel and the other one is slightly smaller then the barrels ID... On the other hand if you epoxy it right it just might work :D You could even buy one of those cheap $2 springer pistols and extract it from it... far less expensive if you dont already have some epoxy or superglue.

Looks to me like a hop-up rubber.
You might want to email an online airsoft shop like airsoft gi or go to an airsoft forum, they will probibly point you in the right direction.

Just a word of advice. Don't do business with them. It took me over a year to get a refund for a defective product and IIRC they are being sued for bad business practices.

lol! i don't care if the product is defective. i just need a spare part from the gun i ordered. that's the only reason i'm getting it, cuz it's a cheap gun that i'm not gonna use. (i bought my airsoft pistol from a store called Armorgeddon. cost me about $30.)
