    Hey All,

    I am writing a review on the custom Longshot springs Winter had shipped in from overseas.

    My first impression when I got the spring, after flipping it around my hands for a few times and trying to squeeze it I realised how strong this spring is, compared to a stock Lshot spring, the wires are noticeably thicker and the spring is quite hard to compress.

    After installing the spring into my Lshot I noticed that it is a fair bit harder to prime, I would not recommend this spring to anyone who still uses the stock priming handle, if you are going to have a spring like this, do a shotgun grip mod so your bolt sled will not break, I noticed with the new spring that while my Lshot is harder to prime, I am getting a lot better ranges with it and I am still maintaining a decent ROF with the shotgun grip.

    Dealing with Winter was quite easy and straight forward, the transaction was very smooth even with a small blunder on my part which was quickly fixed.

    I give the spring and Winter's service a 10 out of 10

    @ Servulus, I'll just bring one for you next week so you can see them. I've got about 20 left of these things, and once they're gone that's it, I'm not getting anymore. I wish I could sell them cheaper like last time.

    May I just say that these springs are shit strong. Stronger than a C-836 or a recon, longshot and triple shot spring put together. You only need ONE spring in your longshot, and this is the one.

    I have absolutely no idea, Servulus. But all I know is that it's suppose to be stronger than the stock spring.
    So I have no idea, cause both springs are stronger than the LShot spring. I think the V2 spring is the same length as the stock spring though.

    All ways trust Servulus to confuse people.

    Good review by the way.
