    Default bumper boy repairs

    How do I replace the threaded rod on a four shooter? Where can I find the rubber spacer for the rod?

    Dale if you find some aftermarket replacement recoil pads let me know...



    Also if anyone has a solution to the broken handles for the cocking mechanism please share i am tired of forgetting the pliers every time and having to walk all the way back to the truck. I was thinking about drilling a hole in the arm and passing some paracord threw the hole to create a loupe to pull from...

    Thanks,
    Drew

    a buddy of mine drilled a hole though his and put a big cotter pin through it. We might want to ask to start a sticky on BB repairs. Were all going to have to be creative on fixing and finding alternative parts to keep our units in service and share ideas. I have two 2 shooters and one 4 shooter and no desire to find something new. My investment in BB for my training is not much better the my meager investments in the stock market ... invest and they go out of business !!!

    I agree with a BB sticky... I will try to thread the end of the rod and screw on a ball knob( http://www.mcmaster.com/#machine-com...-knobs/=ok9f2p ) with loctite . I have a few dies at the house I need to see what size thread i can put on the rod and i will post pictures and details if it works....

    Vice grips It is funny, I actually called customer service about that and they told me that it was impossible for the handles to break. They were so adamant, I figured I was the only one in the world for a while.
