    I am in DIRE need of a repro gun barrel for my Alt Windcherger. I cannot sleep at night and I've got a stomach ulcer because of this.

    Will pay via PayPal.

    I'm also interested in the barrel, but the quality on that site doesn't look to good. If you know of anyplace that still sells them, please PM me.

    Thanks!

    Yes!!! Support these guys!
    They got a ton of stuff. Including those annoying little guns and random parts everybody needs to finish their G1 collection.
    Go casey!

    It's fairly simple to kitbash your own barrel out of a Lego axle, or one of those plastic dart shafts.

    I never said anything about them not being trusty. I said that the pics of the design look like the quality isn't the best. I'd rather get the best bang for my buck. JDproductions isn't open anymore and Transrepro doesn't come with a pin.

    I hear you. The guys over there a well aware that their repro gun barrell isn't the best:
    Looks like I'll have to send my original Binaltech Overdrive gun barrel to get a decent repro one, unless someone is willing to send theirs in.

    You don't even need a pin, a small nail cut to length is what I used.

    Unless you know exactly what you are looking at, you can't tell it's not the part that should be there.

    Well, I have tons of Lego sets that I've had since I was a kid, so I had spares. I think I used one that was 6 or 8 long.

    You don't have ANY Legos laying around?

    As for the nail, I have no idea what size it was. I just dug through my junk drawer until I found one that fit somewhat snugly. A thick enough paper clip may do the trick. Be creative!

    nah, all my legos slowly dissappeared as i grew up (my parents did the random fill up a box and get rid of my toys thing when i was young) and i never got into collecting legos....but i can probably find something at work to use....does black or gray look better? i cant remember the gun since mine are both in car mode....

    Alright, I got a reply to my E-mail. I'll be sending him my Binaltech gun barrel and it should take roughly 2-3 weeks before he can offer new repros!

    I'll keep you posted.
