Instead of using a #49 spring, is there a spring in Mcmaster that I can use?

If you accidentally clock somebody with a doubleshot, then you're more liable to break the doubleshot than you are to cause serious injury.


PM me if selling a NIB or LNNB LnL.

You could of just posted this in your old thread.

I say you google century springs. I heard they have any spring imaginable. Just find the specs of the spring and make sure its not too big or small.

I didn't think this question was on topic with my other one.

I tried combining Mcmaster and Century measurements, but the spring I came up with had 70 pound of force, one that can tear apart a plunger and/or my finger. And I tried google, it didn't work.

Well, the Handman 9713 (or 31) spring has around 35 lbs. of force, and that is just a bitch to cock. I use a TTG spring for my NF. Wait, maybe thats why I replaced the spring- the NF isn't too good. I prefer the TTG. Pretty silent, doesn't shoot up because of the hopping, better ranges, and looks WAY cooler.

But you want a NF, so I recommend a TTG spring, a cut down industrial spring, or just keeping the NF's.

Go to True Value, they usually have a bin for springs. Find out which one fits the plunger setup. I found a GREAT airsoft spring there, its a PDI 160% one pretty much.

I recently did a NF mod and it shoots about 30 feet, flat, with a slight wind against it.

I removed the AR's, slightly stretched the spring, and then took off the angle in the barrel (It improved ranges by a foot (WORTH IT)).

You do not need more than 45 feet out of a pistol because it is, yes, you guessed it, A PISTOL!

You don't need to eat shit (filter loss?) with a NiteFinder (unless it is doubled). That is why I have a at2k.

How much did you take off? JUST the angled part? (IE, the first 1/8th of a inch) Or did you cut back to the first ridge? Or somewhere in between? Pics would be lovely.

Frankly, once OMC's PETG arrives, I want to make my NF a carbine/rifle. :D It's ranges already match my semi-upgraded longshot (roughly 45ish feet)

It's true that you don't need great range if you have a good primary, but that's not to say that it doesn't help.I'd rather have a 70 foot pistol than a 45, even if it's not truly necessary.

The most important thing in a pistol is accuracy however. If someone's rushing you, and you are reloading your XBow (just an example) and you whip out your awesome "100 foot NF!!11!" and then the dart flies above his head, you're screwed.

Actually, I found a Mcmaster-Carr spring that should work very well in a Nightfinder or Disk Shot, it is part #9662k31. It has the same measurements as the Handyman #9713 spring except it has slightly less coils per inch. Of course, if you bought it you would get enough for about 45 Nightfinders or Disk Shots, so you wouldn't ever have to worry about buying springs when modifying those sidearms again.

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

Yes, because you're a terrible shot. My NF may shoot further than your "optimum" 45' but the dart velocity from 0-45' for mine is a lot faster than yours I'd wager. It shoots straight and If i can get my foam on target faster than you can, then that's just an added bonus.

Power and accuracy go hand in hand, both helped by long barrels, powerful springs, and well-sealed internals. Moreover, a more powerful gun gives them less time to react at a given range.

I was just using an example. Like, most of my NF's are really accurate, some have nested brass, otheres CPVC, others PETG etc.

My least accurate one however, is my most powerful one. That is my precisionnerfer nf. I did it myself however.

It is strong, but not too accurate.
