Adding Another Spring To The Recon
Posted 31 December 2007 - 01:48 AM
2. Cut down a piece of 1.5" thin-wall PVC (or anything else with an ID larger than your spring), and trim one end so that it can fit in the stock.
3. Shove a spring in there. I used a full AR-15 spring.
4. You're done!
With a really short Stefan, I got around 30-35' flat. Now all it needs is a better barrel. I'm also really liking the extra weight behind the handle.
The finished product:

The pipe looks crooked though.
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But I’m just not the angel you knew.

What store did you get it from?

The Recon is from a Walmart in Plano, Texas.

What about the AR removal mod?
It looks like you earned the "First Useful Recon Mod" award. Nice job.
And bare with me here, I'm stupid. How does this thing work?

Oh, alright. Thanks!
When you actuate the slide, the plunger tube (the orange bit that sticks out the back) is working against the spring inside the shell just like a mav. On this, he added a seperate chamber made of pvc which acts abainst the plunger tube externally, after it exits the frame.

I saw the Crossbow re-release on the shelf at my local Target, but I didn't want to tell anyone because I wanted them all to myself. I hid them all behind Dora the Explorer toys....

Yes, but better. Rubber bands get stretched and brittle over time and snap, springs stay nice and bouncy.
So does this kind of act like rubberbanding a nightfinder?
sn1per I appreciate your humor, that made me laugh literally out loud.

It's no problem for me to cock, but it is harder than stock, obviously. It's less hard than a NF with handyman spring replacement.
Thanks to bobafan for the explanatory drawing.

So the spring is pushing against the "ARMED" indicator (plunger)?
ANd you always have to have the stock on but I like that since it looks comfortable and awesome.
THen I would keep the barrel attachment on for looks a support for the barrel.
Honestly I would do a barrel replacement write up if i had a recon. I live on the VERY east coast and I had THREE recons at my wal-mart.
I hid them behind the firefly's . I WILL HAve a recon or two, by the 3rd and expect a writeup. (unless someone beats me to it.)

I found 3 hidden behind some other guns, check behind the other boxes. ANd like umdlancer said, If there's none on the shelf, ask a sales person to check the stockroom for you.

I guess you have some heavy duty industrial strength toilet paper holders. Do they advise you to wear eye protection when changing rolls?

On a side note, I rigged up a brass barrel (17/32") and new plunger tube (the part with the o-ring) and was getting another 5-10' with the stock spring. My "extra" spring broke my contraption, but I'll try again tomorrow with more metal parts this time.

I'm going to use a much smaller spring, and brace it against the inside of that middle chunk of the stock (with the clip to hold the magazine) to see if that changes anything. I'll post pictures in this thread when that happens.
Did you brace the tubing with anything? Like gluing it to the gun or the stock or wraping it in duct tape?
I would worry that it'd have a tenancy to fly off if it's not secured somehow.
