Makeshift Adapter

Lacking patience, experience, and having seen too many posts on the net on how to make your own duster adapter, I cobbled together an adapter of my own using part of an old duster can trigger, clear tape and a lollipop stick.

...

After wasting much gas and exposing my hands to the point that my fingernails continue to throb as I type, I realized that the magazine baseplate comes off. Off it goes then.

...

Does a proper adapter leak at all? Because my cobbled-together shit leaks quite a bit whenever I press it against the magazine nozzle.

Wouldn't it be less work and money to just buy a duster adapter?

Only really weak guns like Tanakas and some Marushins need to use duster.

I have had 2 AI adapters. The seal is fine but as you fill the mag a little bit leaks out, it is a non-issue though.

I don't really feel like exposing my pistol to propane, since it's made primarily out of plastic and parts are hard to find.

KSC-make.

Specifically for the M945 Compact.

You're supposed to refill it upside down right? As I was filling it, a narrow jet of gas sprayed out from the port and right onto my hand.
