Re: Carbon Fibre bracing without wood

Re: Installing K&K Pure Mini help

Buy a fresh tube of Gel superglue and use that. I had issue with the supplied glue not working .

As Allen and Martin indicated anything else would be a bad Idea.

Try your Local Firearms supplier, as we are not in the USA that may take some searching , but possibly your best bet if you want some in a hurry.
