Epic Ego 11 fail

This one is all my fault! I bought my first ego 11 and received it today. I went outside to try it out and noticed that the previous owner had the bolt in upside down. The airway hole in the side of the bolt was facing up. I have no idea why but I attempted to remove the bolt pin and flip it to the other side of the bolt. I pulled the pin and the bolt plunger assembly shot across my backyard and I have not been able to find it since. What a kick in the nuts.

Can someone tell me how to get my hands on these parts?

Thanks

You mean the little spring and detent? I did that with my old ego8. A temporary fix would be to use a spring from a pen that fits well. As for the detent, an air soft bb would do the trick. I had that in my gun for a very long time. I don't remember ever replacing it, but you could if you feel the need to.

I did the same thing with my Empire Sniper.

Used a spring from somewhere and a BB ball until Kee could get me replacement bits.

Sounds like that would work so well, and I'm pretty surprised it works so well but hey, cheap home fixes are awesome.

In the end, I would recommend you still get the original parts just so you don't end up having issues in the future.
