XP 310 Missing Screws

Post by strato_2r5 » Wed May 18, 2011 4:33 am

I recently opened up the pump handle on my XP 310 for a pump reinforcement. I seem to have misplaced the screws. Do they use standard sizes or are they custom made for the gun? Where can I get replacement screws?
Sorry if I'm not active much, busy on another forum and another project non-soaker related.

Are you just missing the screws on the pump handle? I wouldn't worry about finding replacements, just wrap the handle in electrical tape to keep it together. The moldings are generally fitted to lock together so it should still stay pretty tight.

The screws are much smaller than normal screws, but if you look hard in a hardware store you may be able to find something that will work. From my experience, you really only need four or five screws to hold together the main case of any gun. They usually build them with a 2x or 3x redundancy on screws.

You can also just take screws from the main body of the 310, or even from another gun. I have a huge number of extra screws, because every time a nerf gun/super soaker breaks, a take all the screws out. This gives you plenty of replacements.
