I just bought a CPS 3000 off ebay. This f****** guy sent me a peace of XPBackfire-esque. the second tine I was using it. the nozzle that attaches the hose to the watergun snapped off :angry: . How can I fix it so it doesn't happen again? :huh:
P.S. I paid over $80.00 USD and the guy won't give me a refund! :angry:
Edit: change 3200 to 3000.

I think I may have had the same problem with my Monster XL. Please post a pic so a further, more accurate diagnosis can be determined.

doesn't matter if he won't refund. Report him to ebay and neg feedback. Check the HELP section. There is so much useful stuff there.

You can pretty much ignore the times on that, I rarely ever have Xfire on when I play. I should, though.

But I really don't want to get a refund anyway. It is such a rare water gun that I don't think they'll have another one for quite a while. :huh:

Why don't you just repair it? It sounds like a job for epoxy or other strong bonding glues to me. B)

What about plastic glue(or watever its called)? I heard its REALLY strong on plastic.
Also, I am afraid I will plug up the hose, making the blaster useless. Any Ideas? :huh:

Okay, If you start at the part where the hose meets the packpack,and follow the hose down, you will come to the gray part where the hose connects to the water gun. There is a hexagon with two false bolts, and after the hexagon there is a cylinder-shaped piece with the water flow on/off valve. Where hexagon shaped part meets the cylinder/on/off valve it where it broke off.
Sorry if there a little confusing :blink: , I will try to get a picture of it soon, but I don't think I will be able to.
