EVENTUAL it probably would break. But as would anything. I'm pretty sure NF's have exactly/nearly the same internals, and they last for agis with a industrial spring in it. As I live in the UK, there are no Ace's over here, so I couldn't be certian.

I once got a modded NF from ebay, from the US, with a industrial spring in it. Now weather it is a Ace #49 spring, I could not tell you. But since most people use that spring in NF's I can only asume it is. And that thing has been fired blank, tossed around, droped, sprayed, sprayed agian (I could go on...) and is now about 2 years old, and is as it was new. So I'd just do it eitherway.

I would imagine that my NF combo spring is as powerfull as the 49, but i'm not sure because some retards work at my local ace and say they're out of the #49...or that "It doesn't work that way...take a lookey over here..." But i have a TTG with stock in mine and it hasn't broke since.

Nah, you should be fine for a long while with the #49 spring in your Disc Shot. Just make sure you replace the catch spring with a new stronger one and sand/dremel down those two ridges that are used to hold the stock spring straight otherwise it is almost guaranteed you'll have lots of misfires. I have a cut down #9713 spring in my Disc Shot and haven't had any problems with it.

When speaking about a swallow, always make sure you know whether it is an African or European swallow. It is very important.

I've had one in my Disk Shot for months. Although mine is actually a #54, it's the same model, the number just varies by location. I picked it up in Pennsylvania. Here are the results:

It has not broken.

The o-ring occasionally pops off, but that's an easy fix.

Without a stronger catch spring, my blaster would fire randomly as I ran around.

It becomes noticably harder to cock.

If you completely reinforce the internals with epoxy, sheet metal, stronger catch, and longer screws, it should be fine.

I took a random pen spring (from the kind of pen that clicks open), compressed it against the catch-socket to measure, and cut it. To cut mine, I bent the amount I'd be cutting off 90 degrees. I then took a lighter, and lit the spring's elbow until red hot, then stuck it under water. After doing this multiple times, the metal weakens. Just cut it with kitchen scissors.

note: While holding the spring and lighting it may seem stupid, it really doesn't get hot anywhere other than where it's being burned.

You might want to find a spring with a heavier wire gauge too.
This is important though, really important, if you want to significantly reduce the chance of your gun misfiring sand down these two ridges until they are flush:

I use springs from ACE for my reinforced catches.
I believe they come in packets of six and I cut them in thirds.

You want your spring to have the same length and width as stock, just have a heavier gauge wire.
You can shave or sand the nub the spring rests on a little bit without doing any damage to the structural integrity of the frame.
