    Dearie me that was my mistake. There are two. I forgot the Longstrike Spring also had a V2 on the end. My apologies.

    Edit: With the Longstrike spring, the AT gets a nice kick to it.

    Ah shit - looks like I did order the Longshot one instead. lol guess my AT is gonna be in the 'non war worthy gun' pile for a while. I wonder what other springs fit into the AT. Hmm...

    Oh man that DOES suck. If you don't want that LS spring, I'll buy it off you. I'm doing a BT order myself soon. If you want an AT spring, I can get you one. You won't have to pay any shipping fee either. Not really all too fair if you're just getting one spring that won't make a difference to my order. No guarantee on when you'd get it though since my going to Synergy's war isn't very high.

    I hope you have more success than myself with getting a BT Longstrike spring to work in an AT. I've dremelled that much out of the shell to make it fit, it wasn't worth the hassle. I ended up just putting a spacer on the plunger tube, and using the stock spring.

    Lucky I had just bought a LongStrike, so the BT spring didn't go to waste.

    ^ hmm.. so despite being advertised to be an AT spring it doesn't necessarily work? I wasn't too sure of the benefits of an e-tape spring spacer so I removed it in anticipation of this spring. Now I suppose I have to go back to my powerstock idea.

    I'd definitely give it a try, but I had no success with mine. I managed to get it to fit inside the shell, but had to slam the handle quite violently on each shot for the trigger catch to engage properly. I really didn't like the life expectancy of the blaster, with having to do that all the time.

    With stock spring and spacer, I'm hitting 78 ft angled.

    I really need to finish my range test/dart weight with flat ranges - when I finally get some sunny days.

    I guess that's a variation in the units or something because mine works a charm. I'm getting around 50-60 feet flat without any problems. Accuracy isn't too bad either with streamlines. Though I did find that one of my longstrike springs was very poor. It doesn't work properly in any blasters.

    Hmm you must be lucky, mine only increases up to 40-45 feet in flat angle.

    When I get a measuring tape that isn't warped and mucked up by wear and tear, I'll retake measurements. But I know it goes at least 50 feet.

    And it isn't that expensive.

    It's the same internals as the Raider, so logically, they're going to jam the same amount of times.

    60% of the cost of a Raider is the drum mag.
    Not necessarily, I haven't had a look at the internals on a Raider(Not in real life anyway), but, I have compared the AT breech with a Recon breech, the AT breech appears to be placed lower which is thus better alligned with the barrel. This is just a brief observation, but to me it is clear you don't have an ATm or have never fired on, mine has never jammed :3

    My dad (whichgrep) has one, I've fired it a couple of times, it's jammed more than I've had my Raider jam.

    I think it's going to be more down to user use. I always slide my Raider handle all the way back and forth, no problems, but when I've used the AT it's seemed to be harder to bring it all the way back - more fiddly.

    Yeh, I wish my AT could've utilised the BT spring. I'll get around to looking at it one day.

    I probably should change that picture of my AT setup from previous page. It now has LSFG pistol grip attached to priming handle and side tactical rail which allowed me to attach my LED flashlight. The tacticool laser reflex scope still go on the top tactical rail.

    I thought this accessory setup actually resemble those M4 rifles used by those mean chicks in Sucker Punch. Maybe I should paint it pink, with flower and bunny pictures and give it to a girl to use instead. .... Not.

    Can you walk me through how you went about attaching the torch? I was thinking of the exact same idea with my Stampede. I was thinking using the Recon flip-up sight as a platform and attach the torch to that (looks like you did that).

    That is correct, Synergie. I used that Recon sight accessory for the base.

    Nerf Alpha Trooper CS-18 - Page 2 Img_3912

    The grey rest for the flashlight is taken from a LSFG (as pointed by the pen in the picture below). The orange semicircular top is one of the three circular bits from the LSFG which holds the main barrel steady. Two orange bits are on the foreground, the one on the right has been cut into half, its top half used in this flashlight holder. The rest of the LSFG has been integrated into my second LS. The pistrol grip is attached to the AT as pictured above.

    Ingenious work you've done there Eddie (or Eddy, cant remember), despite not having access to the LSFG to cannabolise as you have, I'm lucky enough that my father works in Hydraulics and deals heavily in metal piping and hoses, one small part they use is to mount pipes to a flat surface, it looks VERY similar to what you pulled out of the LSFG, so I will look to use that and will post a pic or two of my results. Thanks again for posting pictures and a small-writeup!

    I'm actually getting decent ranges with my LSFG, plus it's vacuum loading so I'm quite loathe to destroy it. I suppose it won't look as good with other handles but I could use other guns'
