Strongarm Final Stage Plunger Rod Failure
Dec 22nd, 2013 at 11:08pm
 
Hello All!

So I was just derping around with my strongarm when I realized that it wouldn't catch anymore. I took it apart and discovered that the plunger rod had failed on me. It broke right at the point where the end part connects to the rest of the rod. Anyone else have this problem?

Hello!

We are currently doing another production run of that part and will be sending a replacement to all affected customers. The catch has been revised to bring back slam fire functionality and divert stress away from the small plastic nubs!

Oh wow, mine lasted significantly longer, but still failed catastrophically. It's all good though, since they're working on the replacement parts.

Mine kept kicking for maybe a week before I experienced a mushy trigger followed by the realization that those parts snapped. They should've kept the original design for that part, isolating those nubs is just begging for mechanical failure.

A polymer slide would also be helpful, I can see the catches on the inside already starting to wear down, only a matter of time before those come off.

On a related note will they be mailing out a replacement to everyone who bought the part or is there a form I should fill out?

Update on replacement parts:

They are in the shipment along with the retaliator stage 3 kits and according to our tracking information the shipment is in Dallas, TX awaiting US Customs inspection. If customs does not hold them too long we are planning on being able to ship both the revised catch and the retaliator stage 3 kits next week.

I asked about this the other day since Retal Stage 3 is shipping out. Apparently the replacement Strongarm bits still weren't up to snuff, so another revision is being made that's darn near indestructible.

They posted a picture on their facebook page a few days ago saying that the replacement parts would be shipping out, so hopefully we'll receive them soon.

Checking to see if there has been updates to this thread.

I just sent messages on Facebook and Amazon.

We have the same issue with minimal usage on one and maybe 100 shots on the other.

My strongarm plunger rod failed too. Cry It has only been a month since I installed the kit.

The same thing happened to me! I had just finished modding my strongarm, and I cocked it and pulled the trigger... I heard a snap and things rattling inside my gun! I opened it back up and I saw that the pins holding the catch on the plunger tube had snapped off! Angry Please help!

Just installed the kit today. Nothing broken yet but the plunger rod keeps turning in the tube so it won't prime. Any ideas on that?
