The casings suck on Gen 8’s but you can make them a bit more robust and secure by replacing all the philips head screws with these bad boys:
Yeah… they look great… one just needs to be a tad ‘limp wristed’ when doing any blaster screws up… they are so easy to strip…
I hate that feeling of doing up a screw and you just realised you overcooked it by a tad … “missed it by THAT much!” (add Maxwell Smart impersonization there) and you are at the biggest screw size already, that can do the job…
I recently bought these off the interwebs (ebay)
There is heaps of kits of different size screw assortments and bolts etc on ebay and the like… I like to always have all different sizes on hand
I think I just that to my son’s P90. All but one went tight then loose…
At least it was your son’s… not yours
Hang on a minute!! Why don’t you go and do it to ALL of the rest of his… so when he is running after you trying to ‘get you’ … his blaster will be falling to bits… great idea
Lol, but who do you think gets to fix them
You can fix stripped threads in plastic.
Buy some JB weld and fill the stripped hole and wipe it flush then leave to dry overnight, re-drill with the correct size drill for your screw and refit the screw.
Stonger than original
PS you can even tap the JB and fit metal thread screws or Allen screws
Awesome, thanks. Will get some this week.
If it’s a hole right through just put some masking tape on the back of the hole to stop the JB weld slowly running out.
