Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyways.... i was modding my LnL, when i lost the a spring. Its the one thats with the square object, not the trigger spring or the main spring. Now, i replaced it with a pen spring from click pen. I had to cut it of course, but other than that, it looked like it would work great. Now, when i put it back together, the spring pushes up too much, and it makes the trigger impossible to use. How could i fix this? Should i cut the spring shorter and stretch it out or what? elp would be nice. Because without the thingy working, i will have to dip into my reserve of new LnLs, and i dont want to do that yet. So help would be nice.....

Try switching the trigger spring with the spring in question, it should better replicate the original spring, and if the trigger springis too loose it will just make for a hair trigger, which is not neccesarily a horrible thing.

"Hair Trigger?" Anyway, i did that, and whatew happens is that it takes a crap load of force to make it fire. The trigger doesnt do it, it is just always stuck. Another problem i realized, was that the spring i used to replace was too wide. Is there any way to make the replacement spring less wide?

I replaced IronRhino's catch spring with a spring from a click pen and it works great. Just cut it down to a shorter size and then stretch it if you want it to be weaker.

Make sure that the square catch isn't in backwards, if you look closely you'll see that the notch on the catch isn't the same on both sides. If you can't get the catch to release then that could be in backwards and be getting jammed.

You could look really really hard and try to find it.

Strike two. Yeah, I know you never got one, but this falls under the "so stupid makes me want to harm myself" catagory, and after the time I did at NHQ I'm pretty immune to stupidity.

And NSF, I don't see Admin in your profile anywhere, and you're name isn't Ompa, so you get a mark for replying to this as well.
