    This thread can give you a more realistic estimate of the range. I can't be bothered actually calculating it and I'm sure its not perfectly accurate, but you can see that all of them should shoot less than 60 feet flat.

    Spending $90-$100 on a longstrike that won't outshoot a nitefinder?

    Well, its your money.

    unless you got a crazy spring, i don't believe a massacre kit is neccesary. polycarb is freakishly strong, and is used on f22 fighter jet canopies among other high spec applications.

    At a war... all you need is a NiteFinder. And a good shot =).

    The Australian modding scene has been quite innovative thus far. Just a few quick examples are inf0rm3r's foam and tips, OzNerfNerd's boltsled brackets, and BattleWorks brass gears for the Stampede.

    Considering the Immortal kit is unreleased, and untested by general public... that's a pretty big call to pit it against "home-made brass breeches". Not to mention the amount of OMW polycarb recon plunger tubes that I've heard of breaking. These kits are designed primarily for those who lack the skills or ability to produce their own modifications.

    On another note - FA24's breech has pretty much been made obsolete by SgNerf's brass breech. And, quite a lot of really good quality performance parts are coming from Xplorer's in Singapore. And, even in saying that, the founder's have said that their Lshot kit is aimed at those who are unable to make their own brass breeches as well.

    And, I'm pretty sure that I heard on the grapevine that the Immortal kit only utilises a 6kg spring... Not that I've seen it published anywhere, so don't quote me on it.

    As for factory-made parts... well as a general rule of thumb, custom-made parts are generally of a higher quality, as they're not mass-produced.

    Anyway, each to their own.

    Cheers,


    Just thought I'd post it here 'cause this thread's as good as any, OMW sells a 10 KG spring, so I guarantee you if they're trying to compete with modders then they'll use that or something higher.

    Which is still 4kg less spring load than what most people are using. Of course they're going to keep their springs fairly light. Otherwise they'll lose a large section of the market that they can't sell their kits to, seeing as most kids will struggle to prime a longshot with a 14kg load or better...

    Cheers,
