10 round tubes for life!

RIP Patchwork

So my T68 encountered a fatal error today, namely being the lever action that was swapped out in place of the drop out broke. How bad? Well...

There isn't any coming back from that, so I have three options:

1. Pay out the nose to get someone to remake it (Rednecksniper made it, and he doesn't come around here anymore I don't think)
2. Get a TiPX and stubbornly figure out a way to make it work with 10 round tubes and a springfeed.
3. Accept my defeat and go with TiPX magazines.

Really kind of a downer, but at this point I'm at a loss and will likely have to go with 3, which sucks cause that means my WTF gauntlets will only get usage in larger games where I need to reload my mags, or when I use my pump (and my minimag pistol when I get that fixed up).

Unable to, the knob area was drilled out for a bigger thread since the original threads were stripping from the stock c02 knob.

Make a threaded bushing to put in the enlarged hole with the CO2 knob threads on the inside. Lock-Tite it in place.

Is it just the plunger stem piece that is broken?

It doesn't look like it would be too terrible to fix but I can't really tell from the photo.

Plunger stem piece is definitely busted, but I am no machinist nor do I have the tools for it, so I'm out of luck.

An interesting idea, would likely make things easier, plus with that kind of setup you could realistically make any form of drop-out knob you wanted, though I don't have tools nor materials for it.

A BTSA17 pistol works with a spring feed and 10 round tubes.

It will not be hard to find someone here who can make you a threaded bushing. If I still had machine shop access I would be happy to help, but alas, last time I had that was 3 years ago. I would recommend a brass bushing with an off-the-shelf stainless threaded knob of some kind, similar to what Smiley put on his and my Zeuses to make a captured plug for the CO2. Very smooth and no real risk of it ever failing or losing the plug. I'll see if I can dig my Zeus out of the basement to take some pics tonight or tomorrow as an example. Please, whatever you do, do not junk that body if this is the freaked one I remember. I would gladly take that off your hands if you see no other option lol.

This is indeed the freaked one, and I would love to make it work before ever doing anything else, and if I cannot salvage it (or find someone who could help) then I would gladly find it a home (including enough spare parts to rebuild it twice over internally) to someone who can. I would have to measure the threading and length and tackle it from there.
