    Just to throw in my 2 cents, I also have a BT V2 spring, combined with stock LS spring. Using stock Streamlines, and an 18 dart clip, the LS averages 115 feet. Tested on flat terrain, with virtually no wind, at approximately 30 degree angle, fired from the hip.
    I have all the general mods (AR removal, boltsled reinforcement, custom o-ring with silicon grease, beefier catch spring etc). Although, the only reason the average is so high, is the unpredictable fish-tailing of the streamlines.
    I haven't measured flat, but I'd imagine it would be drastically lower ranges. If I removed the ranges of the freak shots, I'd say it would be closer to 100 feet.
    I'm waiting on some stefan's to compare data, and will no doubt upgrade to Littlebro's aluminium lamination reinforcement on the boltsled.
    And before I get flamed for being a noob, I may be new to Nerf, but I'm certainly not new to using a tape measure....

    You're probably going to have reinforce your plunger head. With that spring combo, the plunger head is most certainly going to come off.

    @doubleshot lololololol. You're another noobs who thinks stretching the springs actually does something herp-a-derp-a-herp. 120ft is certainly not possible even with wind. Unless you're shooting in a tornado the streamline can get 5km for all I know. Lolololol.

    However, where did he go? He hasn't replied? Whoop, he's been proven wrong and doesn't want to pop his head out anymore.

    @andtheherois - However, with a brass breech with BBB spring, you'll get 80ft flat just with the spring. Leaves a nasty welt with stefans too lol.

    Actually I do have another LS with a brass brass breech with 4.5' of a k26. it's doing around 100. I've got a few shots up to around 110 using my best stefans. This was my first breech though so it may be a little leaky.

    @ Littlebro,

    I have padded the end of the plunger head. Are you saying that I should reinforce behind the plunger head? ie: where the head is screwed on to the plunger shaft. If so, maybe the use of some good epoxy. I realise this will prevent if from being unscrewed, but I can't see that really being an issue...

    Yeap reinforce it with some 3day epoxy (if you're planning not to take it apart ever again. This is because the screw won't rip out but the actual stem that the plunger head sits on will rip out WITH the plunger head leaving no where to put the screw and thus breaking the gun.

    Thanks for that Littlebro,

    My LS is pulled apart at present, waiting for me to finish painting it. I'll epoxy that join later on. Cheers for the heads-up!!
