Hey all... yes I know I am asking about a universal Carbine and yes I do have an issue. But I couldn't pass up the price for the gun. Well here it is, I have shot maybe 40 rounds in it and then the op rod broke at the weld. I don't have a welder, is there an epoxy that is strong enough to keep this together? Parts seem scarce out there in the webs and I'm not sure that the part I get is going to last long either. I don't think I can get to a welder anytime soon at all. So will putty work at all? Perhaps a few rounds and then break again? Well, what does he group think? Thanks all.
