Default Is this scabbard fixable?

I recently received this scabbard and noticed the end piece wonít stay in. Is there an easy fix to this?

It looks like some spot welds have broken loose, causing the top part to separate.

I would think that you could reattach it with a good Epoxy glue.

That's what I'd do. Clean out the 'sockets' and prongs, rough em up
a bit and use a light coat of J-B Weld. Prep right and it'll last forever.

I agree with Navy, unless you know someone that has a spot welder. Clean and de-grease the areas and mix up some JB weld. Make sure you also put some on the two posts as you will need all the glue bond you can get to hold up under use. Good luck, Eddie

This is a good time to clean the complete inside of the scabbard. Spray the inside with break cleaner. Than hot soppy water with a brush. Look for a small bottle brush at any cooking supply.

And if you really want to get ambitious you can carefully bend out the locking tabs and remove the metal from the fiberglass. That would make cleaning and gluing much easier. Eddie

The seller ended up sending a replacement, so I think Iíll give it a shot spot welding it to do the repair correctly! If not that, for sure a little JB weld. I appreciate the advice guys!

That scabbard is an import from Taiwan, possibly via Greece, so you may not want to get too invested in repair time/expense. See Bayonet Points #41 about halfway down.
