yeah, if you grab at the front front bolt area, you would probly have the leverage to do it. You are still a moron now.

Now that we have proven you are a douche, I don't see anymore reason to leave this open for discussion.

Now, you are still faced with a repair method. The Tippmann frame is a low strength aluminum alloy. Not quite "pot" metal but not an alloy that lends itself to most aluminum welding processes. If you can straighten it so that the parts fit together again you may find that an epoxy product  like JB Weld will fix it. Roughen the underside (inside) of the frame with coarse sand paper so the epoxy has something to grip. Smear some on the broken edges and press them together. Then on that roughened inside smear a layer about 1/8" thick bridging the crack line. Screw or clamp the frame to a board or other flat surface to maintain alignment until the epoxy is cured.

The other method is find a welder who knows how to braze aluminum. If he knows what he is doing it will not be cheap $50-$70. If he hasn't done such repairs before do not let him learn on yours. Find someone else

^You can trust him on this.

At least it will still work... If you were going to say you did this to your 98 by hitting it agaist something, try doing the same thing with your ION and test its durability.

I can't just bend it back into place considering the fact that it will be covered by the grips?

My new baby :-P

I live in the Silicon Valley. Wish things were that cheap. Which alloy filler is recommended, 4043? BTW, with a name like Tigman, are you a TIG weldor.

GEEZZ.. As a reminder to us all, don't forget to unscrew the ASA adapter screws before trying to open it.  And at that, never pry a cast open because if it's stuck it's stuck for a reason. 

Agreed?    Indeed. 

The Guy has an attitude problem.  Sexually frustrated if anything.

4043 is probably the best i've also had luck with 5356 but 4043 would be my first choice

You have got to be the most idiotic, stupid, moronic, and dumbest person I have ever seen. You don't force things. Analyze the problem and then find a solution. On rare occasions that solution may involve forcing something but not in this case. You also insulted Tippmann, and everyone who buys their products by trying to blame it on the manufacturer. You sicken me, totally sicken me and I pass gas in your general direction.
