Allright, so I can't really spare it right now, but the Ertl Rapid Fire shotgun's stock spring is a perfect fit diameter wise for the Recon. Will put it in there temporarily tommorow to get ranges.

If you are talking about the 12 shot one, it's spring sucks.
I get like 5ft with the included mega darts.
Am in the process of angel modding it.
I wouldn't reccomend using it for anything.

If you are in the process of angel modding it, you should already know that the plunger spring is among the least of the problems with the stock gun. The air restrictors and overly tight barrels are far more damning to performance than that spring.

That said, if you wouldn't recommend using it for anything, then perhaps you'd be willing to part with the spring?

Or you could poke through industrial catalogs to find a spring with similar dimensions instead of trying to scalp a spring from another gun.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

Precisely what I was in the process of doing. Something around page 500 of this catalog should work, but I don't know enough to determine the correct size that will actually be stronger. http://www.leespring...&pageNumber=501. I will post the dimensions that I have at a later time, but umdlancer posted some general ones under the Nerf Recon Ar Removal thread, I have some others also.

Those springs are way too small. The Recon stock spring has dimensions of 1-1/16 x 1/16 x 4-5/8 (OD x wire size x length), with about 1.73 coils per inch.

Edit:
I went through their catalog and found two springs that look promising. The only problem? A rather absurd price tag.
LC 082M 10 M
LC 082M 10 S

Edit2: added some descriptors so this can be searched.

Wow, holy crap. Never thought to check the tag on any of them, there is no way I will be forking up $90 (minimum of 10 a purchase) on something that may or may not work. Rather disappointing, thought that I had a good lead.
