well, that would explain why i could NOT find a replacement o-ring!!!

i tried 2 auto parts places and the local paintball shop where i volunteer my services.

WHERE do i get a few replacements???????

i lubed the snot outta the old one with DOW33 and oil, and i managed to crack off a few shots before the full-auto effect took over.

i will be madly out-sourcing these o-rings. i wanna keep shooting this beast. i just picked up a stock for it and was gonna mod it to fit, but i aint gonna bother unless i can find some hammer o-rings.
