Has anybody found a way to make their Tomenosuke Bolt from swinging loosely out? There's got to be some type of simple remedy for this!? Mine is so loose and always opens if I lean the Blaster to the right side, bugs me so much! Thank you in advance to whoever can help me on this. Here's some more pics of my live-fire conversion with a freshly reblued receiver!

You could write to Tomenosuke Company I guess. They might help.
Their Tom Pro Blasters (completed version) bolt levers did not swing out so easily and are quite stable for blaster models manufactured after the 2013/2014 year onwards. I am not sure what they did to reduce or stop/rectify this "behaviour".
Like Joberg said, I too remember a few years ago one of the members here or on the RPF did a mod to his blaster using a washer of some sort inside the steyr receiver's front end assembly, behind the 'fixed end cap' and the moving bolt.
Example from the RPF:

Hey, thank you guys for the links! There I almost tried gluing the cut rubber washer to go behind the Steyr Bolt Cap, but I kept reading and found an RPF member that said he used a really small nitrile o-ring on the screw after it is placed inside the Bolt Sleeve then threaded into the Bolt itself. Worked like a charm! I literally have zero room for anything that can go on the front pin otherwise but, the other method worked perfectly!
Thanks again fellas,
Damion

The O-ring method sounds interesting. Hard to picture what is going on there, but if it works...cool. Cool

Maybe this photo will help you understand a bit more clearly? It actually doesn't get any easier than this, very simple and seems to work quite well.

Now, you just screw it in her and she's fixed! Works on almost all females. Sorry, had to go there....my bad!?

Funnily enough the Tomenosuke copies the hero 100% in this regard because the bolt on the hero is extremely loose...
