    longshot mod.



    longshot mod.

    Post  Guest on Sat Sep 05, 2009 3:08 pm

    Hey Gang,
    I was reading an old post about longshot mods and someone had said to get a spring with the code c836 or something lie that from bunnings.
    Well I got one and it is rather powerful.
    Am I meant to stretch the spring?
    Reinforce anything?
    Please post if you know what I am talking about.

    I don't know much about longshots being a man who despises them, but I'm pretty sure you should do some reinforcements to the internals with a new spring in there. I've heard the bolt sled (I think) can snap easly if you add anymore stress to it.

    Also, Don't stretch springs. It pointless. All it does is weaken the spring and it will return to its normal size in a pretty short amount of time.

    Hopefully some one who actualy knows what to do can help out. not just someone who acts like they know.

    Are you Furstrated?

    I don't know what this c836 spring is like in terms of strength, but if the LS needs reinforcement people usually reinforce (with epoxy putty and/or brass strips):
    -the boltsled
    -the trigger catch plate (as well as upgrading the trigger catch spring)
    -the plunger head & piston/rod/whatever you want to call it (or even replacing the seal with that steel/rubber/steel washer sandwich)

    +1 to the not stretching springs, it'll be good for a few shots, but eventually will go back to normal size. Not really worth it unless you're desperate enough to open the gun up and re-stretch the spring after a few shots just to get that little bit further.

    After discovering this holy spring (works in nightfinders too!)I put it in my LS over a year ago with no reinforcement and has held up great.

    To australian nerf- did you put that spring in as well as the stock spring? if so could you tell us the dimentions of the spring?

    To wilvagilly - I would definatly put some reinforcment in to your longshot, from the sound of that spings reputaion, it is quite strong and these guns are only plastic. I might suggest useing steel and epoxy putty, I'm not sure why people use brass, it's more expensive and less strong.
