    Hi,

    Just wondering for a longshot with ARR and NF spring added, do i need to reinforce the boltsled? or should i?

    Or reinforce anything else?

    Also: Great work on the questions thread. Really good idea.

    (This is what I remember from someone elses post)

    The normal Boltsled is built to only hold the stock spring and the stock spring ONLY. Anything Added will need some reinforcement.

    Any added spring means that your boltsled will eventually break.

    End of story.

    Yep, when you upgrade the spring you should pad your plunger head and reinforce the bolt-sled. It might not break today or tomorrow, but it will eventually crack.

    OzNerfNerd sells both of these on ebay:

    Otherwise you can find and make them yourself.

    You'll find that after constant use of an LS + NF spring combo. You'll find that there will be a hairline crack on your boltsled.

    Thanks for the rap!

    These brackets have been our absolute biggest seller.

    Check out our new Longshot size recoil buffer as well.

    I see also on SGNerf that some mob over there is making a heavier plastic replacement boltsled.

    There are also full ally replacements.

    The sky (sorry, bank balance) is the limit.

    If they make those heavier plastics. I would probably reinforce them with aluminium anyway. The more strength the better :D.

    Yes,

    That is a very valid point, as the SGNerf review said that they still showed signs of stressing.

    At the end of the day, how much heavier spring is necessary??

    Fair enough if you are going for best distances, but if you're using it for wars I would want something that would shoot around 90-120 feet.

    This would be a nice hard hitting blaster for 60-90 feet ranges.

    Reloading force should be a consideration.
