Hi, I got a strong arm rather recently and wanted to do a spring replacement, but wasn't sure what spring or combination of springs to use. I was thinking of using a stock spring from another Nerf blaster in combination with the stock strong arm, but haven't noticed any that would work.

Try a spring a little smaller than the od of a big bad bow spring, like a scorpion bow spring.

As Panda said, I don't think there is a way to fight gravity without a guaranteed loss. You could use magnets, but no one knows how those things work except the Mormons.

Or lasers. You should integrate some lasers into your Nerf darts. Problem solved.

The best spring I've found is SGnerf's 10kg Swarmfire spring; it just fits (may need to be cut down a smidgin).

I've got one in my re-barreled strongarm and it has a lot of 'oomph' behind it.

I hadn't seen that. I think like what he said in his first post, he wants some type of stock spring.

Do not get the OMW spring. I put that in my strongarm and it snapped my plunger. It broke the shell first. When I reinforced that the plunger snapped in two. Im waiting for their kit to come out for it.

Replacing my spring with an OMW swarmfire spring a few months ago ended up bending the pegs on my priming slide and partially breaking my blaster. Guess I just had bad luck if CRCL managed it with a 10kg spring.
