    Hello OzNerf community.
    I've been looking for K26 springs for ages now and i've finally sourced a large quantity.
    Since they're in America, the postage is pretty bad but if people want, i can bring them into the country for roughly $12 a piece + domestic shipping. If more people are interested, I may lower the price as the shipping decreases.

    INFO: These springs pretty beafy from my knowledge and are 11inches long and may be cut down to fit many different blasters and these are perfect for; homemades, +bows, longshots, cut down in NF's, ERTL PAS and not too sure on any more.
    POST YOUR INTEREST.

    I'd be happy to grab a couple at war pickup to skip domestic shipping..

    Alternatively, if you need my mod services you're more than welcome to make an arrangement for a trade or two. Thanks.

    Honestly, not too sure about either but for $2 more i can change it to USPS priority mail probably making each order faster to arrive.
    Personally, i've never experianced the timing of US postage due to the price.

    Thanks, mate.
    However, I can't figure out what translates to the pound-force per inch from those specs.

    If anyone can work it out, I would appreciate it.

    I know what you mean Mull, half of McMaster's springs are easily given in lb/in, the rest go in some weird system. Anyhow, from what I wrote down in my notes the K26 is 0.68 N/mm or 3.88 lb/in.

    In comparison, the SS spring (slightly stronger than the BT LS V2 spring with the same OD) hover around the 1.20N/mm mark.

    From what I can work out, if you use the whole 11" of this spring and compress it all the way down you will be getting about 14.5Kg spring load which is 0.5Kg more than a BT V2 spring.

    If you cut it in half, you'll be getting about 7.25Kg in load.

    I worked this out using the free length(279.4mm), the min. working length [70mm(# of coils x wire diameter)] and the N/mm rating

    So.. I know the k26's diameter is posted on the first post, but how is it relative to the V2 spring?

    Now that I've actually committed to buying one, which was initially out of curiousity, I'm actually thinking "where the eff am I going to use this?!"

    You can use the whole 11" in your longshot which is actually stronger than the V2 spring or you can cut it down to fit into a couple of NF's and i'm not too sure about its strengh compared to a C-836 but i think it should be stronger. This pring is used so much by the American nerfers because of the availability.

    that would make it really hard to prime and you would have to cut it down to around 3-4" for it to fit. Seems like a waste to me.
    EDIT: unless your going to use it for a couple of NF's aswell.

    Hey man I plan on paying you around next week? I know it's a bit late but I'm a bit low on cash atm, and I need a decent cash flow to pay for petrol and going out and stuff..

    Cheers
