I am having a bit of trouble with reinforcing the catch mechanism of the Longshot. Could anybody tell descriptions or pics of how they did this?

No ones done it. They've all been talking out there ass. Unless they never posted it.

You don't need to do it unless your spring is stronger than a ar15+ bbb spring combo (don't try that, trust me).

You only need to reinforce the bolt's connection to the bolt catch (if you replaced the breech) with glue. and put PVC in the stock so it doesn't collapse.

Thanks, I thought that since people were talking about it that someone had actually done it.

I'm pretty sure i'm not talking out my ass when I say that I have. Probaly not to the extent to hold up alot more stress than a stock catch, but enough to the point that I won't have to worry about it miss firing or somthing along those lines.

And the OP is asking for people like you that say you've done it to actually tell how you did it.

If all that you are doing is adding in an AR-15 or BBB spring, swapping the catch spring for a stronger one is all the "reinforcement" that you will need.
