Okay... I have a beater Winchester 1300 and the plastic shell holder thingy that mounts on the side of the receiver with an aluminum bracket of sorts....
The aluminum bracket comes loose all the time....
I want to just glue the plastic shell holder onto the side of the gun...

What type of adhesive will work best?

Plastics can be hard to glue. You should take a little acetone and rub it on the plastic. If the acetone is making the plastic melt then you probably can use epoxy or maybe even contact cement. You may also want to try double face tape. 3M make double face tape that will hold just about anything.

Thanks...

Aluminum Devcon?

Depending on the plastic some of the 3M DP XXX adhesives may work. Look carefully at the part and you may find the plastic type stamped in it somewhere - it will be something like POM or PC or similar.

If it's acetal plastic, let me know if you find an adhesive that actually does work!

The hardware store should have some epoxy that is meant for plastics (& metal).

Devcon, JB weld?

Some plastics like Delrin ( Acetal ), Teflon, UHMW, Nylon, are hard to glue. They have an oily quality to them that make them great for bushings & such but terrible for glueing. ABS, PVC & others on the other hand are easy to glue.

Ive had good luck with CoolChem

2 part epoxy is probably your best bet IMO

There is a glue in Walmart's craft dept called E6000. It will bond plastic to metal quite well. It is not a brittle as epoxy. It dries clear and is very slightly flexible, which keeps the bond from breaking easily. Of course, both parts must be free of grease and oils.

I have used this for the last 10 years gluing plastics to metals for some of the repair and maintenance work I do. It works far better than epoxy.

try SEM products, they offer multiple 2 part epoxy's that'll do the trick....

Hehe, funny you should ask this.
I am about to place an order for some Hysol Double-Bubble Epoxy Adhesive.

Try some of that if you can find it.
I think Devon makes an aircraft grade adhesive.

Hysol, MIL-S-8802 and Scotch Weld, that's what keeps the Navy's aircraft in the air.

If Hysol won't stick it, just forget it and move on to another project.

You might try superglue gel. That stuff bonds just about anything.

If you want it on there until a decade past doomsday, use some Acraglas.
