I have a UTG L96, with a metal trigger box, and a laylax piston and spring guide. With these hardy internals, I decided to upgrade my spring as well, to a PDI SS 3000 Spring. A combination of the spring power and repeated use has resulted in a problem- the section of the cylinder that attaches to the bolt handle has physically been pulled out of the cylinder body. Short of taking the $150 dive for a new one, does anyone know of some DIY fixes that could fix this puppy?

You could try drill and taping some set screws around the cylinder or call in a friend that can tig weld. Have you looked around for another stock cylinder? Some of the guys here have had luck annoying the piss out of Leapers for UTG stuff.

No welds.... they are crimped on the end.


You could always try and contact leapers, though if you are pushing that large of a spring, it is going to do the same thing as well.

I would suggest getting an upgraded cylinder, and not have to worry about it.

Yeah, you are going to have to run by a local welding school or machine shop and have it done. The school will be cheaper. Just talk the the professor, ask if a student could tig it for you, and pitch him $20 and tell them both thank you. I agree with the above comments, limping your current cylinder along is only going to result in you needing to buy a nicer one eventually.
