Weld Pot Metal

Apr 20, 2011

how do you fix pot metal?

pot metal or white metal cant be welded and it came off my co2 airsoft gun so the magazine is broken . if you use this pistol there`s 2 things at the top to hold in the bb`s . if you wanna see just go to youtube and look up ” my broken sw40f magazine ” its also my favorite gun .

Airsoft guns are fairly new so I doubt that it is pot metal (they don’t use pot metal in toys because of the potential lead/zinc content). It is most likely a cheep grade aluminum. If it is pot metal you can use a rod called Muggy weld that works good for that metal but you have to be very careful because too much heat and poof its gone. If its aluminum you can use Aladdin rod if you don’t have access to an aluminum welder.
