Option 1 would be to order a new bumper. They can be purchased from multiple places including directly from Meucci. If it's the pill style bumper, Meucci would probably be your best choice.

The butt cap tenon is glossy which would seem to indicate some sort of chemical adhesion. You can even see it in the grooves. Just because glues tend to not like to bond with delrin doesn't mean that...

Interesting thought although I seem to remember most of those were non-veneer points. To be honest, I'm not 100% certain this isn't a full spliced conversion. There's a 2" rattle ring at the A joint...

I don't think there is a "right" answer to that question. If it has ringwork or a buttcap, I call it a 'fancy sneaky." That's just terminology though. I don't personally care if you call it "zaboo...
