    Spectre Priming Bar Strength Empty Spectre Priming Bar Strength

    Post  SpectreOps Sun Jan 20, 2013 1:17 pm

    Hi,

    I have modified Spectre which I am currently running an OMW 6 kg spring in. I was thinking of putting a Longshot front gun spring in as well, but I'm not sure whether the priming bar will hold up. Anyone have any idea how strong the priming bar in the Spectre is? I hear it's stronger than the Maverick's but that's about all I can find.

    Thanks!

    If it's anything like a Maverick's, then not strong, I reckon after a few shots with the 6kg spring alone it will give in.

    The priming bar is actually considerably thicker than the Maverick's. I've had the 6 kg spring in there for a while and it's holding up fine. I'll see if I can take some measurements of the Spectre priming bar later.

    Usually it's the plastic mount that the priming rod sits in that is the weakest link. Even though it's only a small diameter, a piece of metal that short will be fairly hard to bend to the point where it isn't functional.

    Cheers,

    Hmm, in that case I might have a go at putting the extra spring in. Hopefully it won't be too hard to prime... From your experience though, do you think the plastic casing will hold up? Have you ever had a priming bar or its plastic mount break?

    Thanks!

    Have only ever broken a Maverick in this way. I'm not sure of the spring load of the BT spectre spring, but that's all I've ever used.

    Let's face it, the Spectre will never be a phenomenally powerful pistol, no matter what you do to it. The reverse plunger has a small volume for air displacement, which limits you quite substantially.

    Cheers,

    In that case I might give it a shot, since the Spectre's plastic casing seems to be stronger than the Maverick's. The BT spring probably has a higher load than OMW's so it should be fine. I'm aware of the limitations of the Spectre's reverse plunger, but it's worth a try. Might as well see whether it makes much difference. Thanks for the help!
