Wait, is this the indy of whose I think it is?

oi vey...


I have an idea, but you'll need some stuff to make it work and it won't be JB.

Consider brazing. Completely plug the inside of the body, then drop copper in there. Sand it down so there's a tiny trough, and then put a tiny bit of JB weld or some epoxy over it to keep **** down and tight.

Then sand that flat and shazam.

that was another idea that was brought to my attention, using a coper tube to completely bypass the holes in the body, but i need one end threaded for the noid hose adapter and the other end needs to be cut to get air in from the lpr


i do have allot of welder friends that could make that happen as far as the tig goes but i cant put any money into re anno. id just leave it as is and use it


also, the screw that holds the asa in place is stripped and the noid is blow, i need to get that screw out and does anyone have a spare noid?

If there isn't a body you can pick up for less than the cost of repairs (say sub 100$) I would keep it as parts and trade for another indy.

This one most likely isn't worth the effort and should go back to the ashes. Have tried to fix guns with similar problems and the results just aren't worth it.

Look at it as an opportunity. Attach a whistle to the hole. REPURPOSING LIKE A BOSS. There now you got yourself a fancy new fangled whistle you can sell to a hipster for like nine-thousand seven-hundred eight-seven dollars and sixty-three cents

Interesting.........I thought trademygun.com tested everything before passing it on? If not then what good are they?

I still don't see how someone put a hole in there like that. That's a pretty precise knock out.

it won't......... do a few practice runs on some random stuff and the product speaks for itself..

i'd cake it over the hole and cut some piece so that the eye covers and eye wires can fit on


edit: i'd wear a pair of gloves or something while working with it.. it smells pretty awful until it dries. don't want that smell on your fingers

im sure a bit wouldnt be a bad idea, but like i said, give it a few practice runs on different stuff. I haven't used it to repair anything metal really, just some brackets on chairs and stuff, ceramic stuff, and other things. My uncle has used it a lot more on a lot of stuff. He swears by it.

try cutting a hole in the side of some macroline or some small metal pipe and see if it will seal.

Plugged up the inline air hole on my invasion with JB Weld Stik. Same stuff as Mighty Putty. I sanded the immediate area down a bit, but not much, and it is still holding strong a few practices later.
