So stop with all the "new Recon" crap. This thing definately isn't a Recon, I'll wager my soul. Someone can quote me on that if they'd like

Sorry for the double post. There was a computer glitch.

I don't think you'll be able to add an extra spring into there unless it is smaller in diameter than the RFR spring. Also, the NF spring is weaker than the RFR spring.

In my experience, RFRs are mediocre. They get horrible range even when modded, and reloading is a bitch. I modified (does anyone use that word anymore?) one with a Mav or some sort of spring alike and added it to the stock one...significantly harder to load a shell and it got maybe 10 or 15 feet more. Topping out at 40 or so ft. If you want a RFR that works well, reinforce the internal parts with aluminum tape or epoxy putty...anything that doesnt affect the performance. Unfortunately mine broke after a day of use. It was a nice gun while it lasted.

I've never tried it, but I was going to make a breech that works similair to an Angel Breech, only with a 2K as power source. Dont have any 2Ks or brass to spare so this project is at the bottom of the list.

AJ.Z is right. I also broke my rfr shortly after doing a spring replacement. The catch is extremely brittle and very awkward when compared to nerf catches. If you're going to put a more powerful spring in there, reinforce the catch first.

Wll I got it out and I stretched the NF spring to the point where it barely fits on the thing and to make sure i get better ranges I added a small but good industrial spring inside the NF spring....I thank you guys for your help
