Grease gun WTF!

I blew my grease gun apart. Seems the plunger assembly is broken. Is there a place where you can buy replacements? This gn was $60.00, and its a great grease gun (when it worked) and I dont want to have to replace it if I dont have too. ANy ideas are welcomed.

Thanks! I'll try all of those. I cant do anything with it until Monday, and I may see if I can fix it in the mean time.

After I rebuilt it, my neighbor, Bob (the guy who had his flag stolen), gave me a grease gun his Dad used in WW2. SO, I made out OK.

Oh Hell yeah. This thing is BEEFY. It has all sorts of US patent numbers on it. Bob doesnt have a son-in-law, or grand son, or the like, so He has been giveing me "Hand me downs", like tools, and stuff. He sees me working on stuff all the time and says "Hey, I think you might like this"...
