Improvised paintball gun fixes

Okay so I have heard of people forgetting hoppers and using empty water bottles as a hopper, losing screws on clam shell 98s so tape holds it together,using elastic bands for o rings, and the list goes on. What's the best improvised quick fix for a paintball gun you have done?
I wanted to let my friend use my diablo pump, but it was leaking as it needed a new cup seal. I discovered that doubled over duct tape is a fairly decent replacement, as far as quick fixes go.

hose clamps/zip ties/duct tape can fix damn near anything I always have them in my gearbag(as well as a full rebuild for both my guns)

modern guns brake alot less than old ones though and I have not had to jerry-rig anything for a few years now

My old marker had a ridiculous amount of Teflon tape on its threads. Because it was an older marker it just ate O-rings and would leak constantly through the threads by the low-pressure entry. I gave up replacing o-rings and just covered those threads with the tape and it has been working perfectly ever since.

Spliced plenty of battery wires in my day. Mostly all Smarts Parts boards.
Always got them off of cheap $5 alarm clocks.

Recently got a second hand L7 bolt for my Rev-I and it was sent with a Threshold spacer. I bought a rubber plug for $0.10 and drilled it out to fit the bolt stem. Worked fine for a few days, until I could buy the real spacer.

A handful of Teflon tape and duct tape can fix pretty much anything.
