So it looks like the abutment washer came out with the abutment seal on my dad's 103. Great. Before I get started I thought I'd see if anybody had any advice. It appears as though the washer is fine and I'm pretty sure I can see the staking tabs in the compression chamber. Beyond that Clueless.

I've successfully used a thin application of E6000. This has gotten me out of a jam several times. But putting credit where it is due, Cobalt 327 suggested this adhesive to me a long time ago.   Just make sure both surfaces are clean of lubricant. I use alcohol to accomplish the task.

Thanks guys but I'm pretty sure we're talking about two different problems. The metal abutment actually came out of the gun along with the Rubber abutment seal.

Just in case you’re not already aware of this, Shane (Restomod Daisy) has done a couple of videos on these abutment washers (the most recent being Feb. 4 of this year) good info, well worth checking out.
Good luck !

In re-watching the video, I see he didn’t show reinstallation.
Using the shot tube for placement/alignment is the best way.
To bend the tabs, I’ve used a piece of pipe cut at a 45 degree angle to (gently!) force the tabs away from the tube wall and start the bend, after this a flat-ended rod and some careful hammer work finishes bending the tabs against the washer.
Good luck !

Yeah I'm glad you pointed me to that video. That would have been pretty funny to try to glue my abutment washer back in there. Haha. I'll let you know how it goes. Appreciate you guys.

All right just to follow up 3 hours of frustration later. I was able to reinstall the abutment washer. Pretty similar process to what Mr Bruce shows in his video. Interesting note pretty sure this gun was manufactured wrong in the first place. The tabs on the compression chamber to hold the abutment washer in place are nowhere near at 3:00 and 9:00. So my guess is they were never been over but I'm still performing my forensic analysis. Anyway gun shoots dead straight and hard. Appreciate the community spirit.

Good deal !
Never seen one with tabs in the wrong place before, but apparently non-bent tabs did happen from time-to-time.
I had a 102 with the seal stuck to the plunger head, when I pulled the shot tube the abutment washer almost fell out.
Whenever I work on one of these, I always inspect the tabs now.
Glad you got it fixed !
