    Posted: 03 January 2006 at 3:10pm
The ears on my e-bolt battery cover cracked and then broke off completly. I emailed Tippmann to see if they have a replacement I could buy,but I doubt they will since they no longer make them. Right now its just taped up with electrical tape and looks ghetto as hell.... :(

Any ideas on what to do? I might put longer leads it in the mean time. I wonder if the rocket cock is big enough to stuff a battery into.

  And totally inappropriate for this application.

Also, it looks like you didn't learn anything from your first strike.

I want it to look nice because I'm going to sell it. Plus I think I lost one of the tabs.

i don't believe the rocket cocker is big enough, cuz it covers the cocking knob, and only sticks out like 1/2".

E-trigger

Kurt,

If you run across a source of these battery cases, let me know. I also need one. My intent is to make one by TIG welding aluminum. It is rather labor intensive and I really would prefer to buy a new plastic one.

Yeah, I'll let you know. I think I'm going to call Tippmann he in a little while.

I called the tech shop and they are sending me a couple (two E-Bolt markers in this house)...no charge! I am going ahead in my spare time, what ever that is, and fabricate a couple out of aluminum to see how practical an idea it is.

I really can't tell difference between the old and the new. They did not send two as they promised. My old one broke , most likely, because the heads of the aftermarket bolts I used in those attachment holes stressed the ears of the battery holder. Haven't gotten around to trying to make an aluminum one yet. Been busy modifying the E-Bolt wireing to prevent broken wires. I'll post under a different subject line.
