Nova 700---need help
I bought a nova 700 that someone took out the velocity screw, velocity cap, velocity washer, and regulator spring, i was told if i put an inline reg on it would still work good so i put on a ANS Gen. X-2 Reg. I aired it up and the barrel moved inwards and no leaks so i fired and BOOM!!! the barrel shot off with such force that the end of the gun hit me in the chest. This made the three metal slots holding the guns barrel break off. Is there anyone out there who can EXPLAIN TO ME WHAT HAPPENED? Can someone help me get this thing working? can I send it to someone to fix? Please reply. Thanks.
