Has anyone ever used or repaired a SplatMaster marking pistol? Answered
This is a long shot but has anyone here had experience with SplatMasters?
I bought two of these guns about 15 years ago, second-hand and they have never worked.
They dry fire perfectly but the problem comes when I load a CO2 bottle; it leaks.
Is this a known fault and can it be remedied?
The bottle is punctured on the spike, as it should, then proceeds to hiss and empty immediately.
There was nothing around the spike when I bought them so I tried various items ranging from inner tube to gas o-rings, until I ran out of expensive CO2 bottles.
It may be possible that the gas is seeping from another part of the gun; Any ideas?
Also, according to the photo with the red background I can see that every part seems to be there except a small spring and a ball detent;
Can I simply make one from a pen spring and a ball bearing?
Any help appreciated as I would dearly love to have fun with these.
