Default Leaky Pumps

I have two weapons that soak me because they leak like half their water through the pump shaft. This IS fixable using the pump mod, right?

Yeah, it should be fixable.

The homemade I am 95% done (all except glueing) uses only electrical tape as the O ring on the pump. If you get it right, which takes some time and experimenting, then the tape can have a perfect seal by itself. Try lubricating it too, it makes it seal better if you use a thick grease such as vaseline and also makes it buttery smooth.

I don't care for big complicated homemades, more that piston pressure homemade using that simple white PVC stuff
