K26 Spring Getting Less Range Than Weak Spring? Nite Finder Question

1. Your seal sucks and the quickly compressed air vented out in other places besides the barrel.
2. The quick compression may eject darts sooner than all the air is being compressed, so you are wasting a bunch of extra air.
3. The Nerves in your arms don't work and the K26 is actually weaker than the other two springs.
4. Dart-Barrel fit isn't good enough and air escaped around the dart more than projecting it forward with the increased compression.

Yeah, thats the problem I get. My stefans shoot fine, just not as far as I would like them to, but stock darts start to spin after about 20 feet.

Trust me, my seal is so bad vacuum loading would be nothing short of a miracle. Plus, I load my darts into the barrel, then attach it to the coupler.

So beef up the seal and get back to us. Even if it doesn't help with your spring dilemma, leaving the seal crappy isn't helping anyone, and it can make your blaster wear down faster in extreme cases.

Well, the spring has a tiny bit of pre-compression when fully assembled, but there is some space (about 1/2 an inch) on the plunger rod the spring does not take up.
