My slide just broke after less than 1000 pellets.

Can any tell me is there anyway to turn off the blowback?

The gun wouldn't function, it would just blow CO2. Unfortunately the blowback feature is required to cycle the slide, cock back the hammer, unless its a DA. But still needs to cycle to pick a BB from the magazine.

Sorry I didn't know it was rotary, assume it was a mag fed.. All you would need to do is plug the gas port. I would plug it nearest to the Co2. No Gas, no recoil.

That would make it more like a single-action revolver: You'd have to manually pull the slide to cock and load it. Don't even know if that would work, but it sure makes the handgun nothing like the real steel.

Either way, you're going to be putting strain on the slide, so I'd say it's time to go on a parts search; a slide shouldn't be too difficult to find. R&R Airgun Repair is a licensed Umarex repair guy in Winnipeg; I'll bet he can find one for you, and the price will be fair, at the very least - a well-respected resource around here.

Heres the answer i got :(

Hi, unfortunately, the gun has been discontinued and repair parts are no longer available. I sold my last replacement slide several months ago. Only option is to find a used gun for parts.

Sorry to hear. I didn't guarantee good news, but now you've got the true skinny, so your search efforts can be more focused. If anyone had parts, Rob would know (more likely, he would be the one who has them). I don't know how much you like the DE, but I wish I hadn't sold mine, and would definitely have hunted for a parts gun (which may end up being in better shape, making your current DE the parts gun :). If your like is not so much, then there are lots more equally fun guns for the choosing. It's happened to all of us.

Have you tried superglue?

to be honest i bought a second one (while it was working, its in the mail)

i had an airsoft DE with metal slide that never feeded properly. both slides are almost identical..

Maybe ill be able to make a miracle.

here is some guy on youtube that canceled the blowback :

JB weld would be your best bet for fixing the crack.. Just need to use a tooth pick to get it in the holes, might have to pull the crack open a bit.

Well JB weld is a name of the company. So they do make stuff for plastic, not just alum/metal.
