Hello everyone, last week I went to Home Depot. I live in Canada, so when I got there I looked for industrial springs in the aisles and I could not find any. Any Help?

Much appreciated.

Try a hardware store (I'm not sure if they have ACE hardware stores in Canada), but any hardware store should have springs.

I live in Canada and have had no such luck with springs. I found a couple of weak springs at Canadian Tire, but that's it.
Home Depot: none
Rona: none
Home Hardware: none

The only place I've been to that had springs was called the TSC. It's some Country Hardware Superstore, but it had some nice replacement springs for an NF or a Mav.

Haven't found many other places, but you might want to try and sniff out a Fixco.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. A good nerf gun is like a good woman. It shouldn't require extra lubrication.

If you don't mind ordering off the internet, Mcmaster is a great place for springs. Type "springs" in the search box and you can find the exact dimensions you want.

I've only found one suitable spring from Home Depot, found it in the gate/fencing department. Came in a pack of 4, two long two short. Forgot the exact dimentions though. Next time, I'll take a look.

No we do not

Mcmaster is a great place for springs

I'm not sure, but I don't think they ship to Canada



BUT YOU CAN FIND SPRINGS in automatic screen door closing thingies.
You know the one that makes the screen door whack you in the face, only if your cousin doesn't hold the door for you. (don't worry, I shot him pointblank with a plugged BBBB)

But those springs are killer, as in too killer and your nitefinder goes KA-BLAMO!!!

Since you're too young to get a hotel, you should look around, maybe check some aim chatrooms.
Theres alot of really friendly, nice people out there, that'd be more than willing to accomodate a young boy.
