    C836 in Longshot or not?

    Post  Point_of_Contact on Sun Jun 23, 2013 1:39 am

    So, after numerous searches, I have not been able to come up with a definitive answer to this question: Does a C836 spring work in a longshot?

    I know it works in a nitefinder, but I have seen mixed responses in regards to it's use in the Longshot. 

    If putting a C836 in a Longshot is a bad idea, what would be a very good, powerful alternative for use with a streamline/modified streamline blaster. Just remember that, being the usual 12 year old, money is a bit of a constraint, so offering the best spring ever, with a price tag that reflects that, is pretty useless information. 

    Currently I'm running my Longshot with only light modifications of AR removal and an NF spring addition (I dislike the NF spring as it rattles like something else). At the first war I've ever been to, (stock darts, mainly stock blasters, run by me) which was yesterday, my Longshot was way OP. I would really like to show them what a really good blaster is, and in the process urge them into modding their own blasters.

    Thanks for your help,

    Yes, it does. I ran an 836 in my longshot, with the standard spring inside it, for a few years. I found it the quickest and easiest (laziest :)  ) mod that I could do.

    Make sure, though, that you add sufficient padding, either to the very front of the inside of the plunger tube, or to the plunger head, so that you don't punch out the bottom of the plunger.

    Take note of the alignment of the plunger head on the rod before you take it apart. It can go on more than one way, but only one is right.
