    WTB: longshot springs 20kg+

    Post  Nerfherder88 on Wed Apr 10, 2013 1:27 pm

    Hi,

    I'm looking for any springs over 20kg+ for the nerf longshot.
    I already have all the reinforced parts e.g. Metal boltsled, plunger.

    Cheers

    20+kg? what are trying to do? shoot down low flying aircraft?

    but on a serious note, you'll probably have to use a combination of springs. cut down k26 is 11.5kg, stock longshot spring is another 2.5kg, so there's 14. i'm not sure if it'll work, but a 6kg recon spring from Orange Mod Works will bring it up to 20, if it fits.

    also, you're probably gonna need a remedy metal kit for that, weighted darts, and decent biceps.

    You can get a 24kg spring that'll fit in a Longshot from one of the types of guy rope kits you can get at either Big W or K-mart. Can't remember which one though.

    Thanks for both replies, I might give both options a try but will have to start doing more bicep curls.

    Wasn't thinking of trying to shoot anything in particular down but you have put the idea in my head of testing it out on some magpies that constantly swoop at me and the kids when we walk the dog JK

    It'd be interesting to see what results you get out of it. Do you have a sealed breach and a shotgun style priming grip or just the stock bolt action style priming bar?

    Sealed brass breech based on SG Nerf guide, and shot gun style priming grip. Currently have the black tactical v2 spring but don't know what the rating of that spring is.

    You've definitely got what you need to get as much as you can out of a longshot then. Try and see if the 6kg recon spring will fit inside the bt spring. I know it fits inside a stock ls spring.

    The 6kg OMW spring doesn't fit inside the BT spring unfortunately.
    Still need to head to Big W to try and find the guy rope.

    These are springs I have used before in various blasters: http://australia.rs-online.com/mobile/c/?searchTerm=Compression+spring+135mm&sra=oss&r=t

    The 27mm diameter one is thought to be around 13kg.
    The 22mm diameter one is thought to be around 16kg.

    Both of these fit in the longshot.

    something I tried in my remedy metal LS today, was the cut and closed k-26 that came with the kit (11.5kg) + my 6kg orange mod works recon spring + stock spring (wich i think is 2.5kg? someone correct me if I'm wrong.) that's 20kg, and it works fine for me, however I had to reinforce my trigger with a cut down 14g bike spoke in the groove along each side of the trigger, as well as reinforce the plastic below the trigger as the flex in the trigger was bending that too. downside, it was a pretty stiff prime and i had to use 2 fingers to pull the trigger. upside? well, POWER. LOADS OF IT. In the end though, I went back to the k26 and the omw spring anyway because I couldn't prime fast enough.

    I put in a cut down K26 spring (11-12kg) and a black tactical V2 longshot spring (14kg)and both fit easily.
    I am gathering that is roughly 25-26kg load. Works like a charm,but is a bitch to prime.

    Mate,

    Even with all your metal parts, 20kg is getting a bit heavy for anything other than achieving records with careful reloads between shots.

    I'm 115kg, and that 14kg spring of mine is as much as I'd want to running around reloading flat out in a war.

    Each to their own, but you can get a good reliable result with the right balance of spring load, plunger seal, light reinforcement and lubrication.

    Assembling the thing properly helps too.

    You'r absolutely right.

    It was more a bit of fun to see if it could handle it.
    Realworld use is pretty much zero because of the priming issue.
    In my other brass breech I use just a 14kg spring plus the stock spring which works fine for nerf wars.
    Currently have about 10 longshots that I am messing about with for various mods, 2 with RM kits, 2 with Xplorer kits and 2 brass breached so was just testing out different spring rates and limits as I'm a bit bored
