I just bought a yellow LS and was wondering if a LS+LS spring combo would be to much for an unreinforced Boltsled?

I wouldn't think so. You could add some reinforcement just in case, but my LS with both a BBB and a LS spring holds up pretty well.

Really? With no reinforcement?
A red BBB or purple?

I used the original Hypersight spring. It's pretty damn strong and hard to prime (for me, I'm weak).
But if it's put under too much stress, the bolt sled will probably crack.

How would you find space for two LS springs?

It's really hard to do. I almost got it, but the cap popped off before I was able to screw it on.

Dude if you are going to use the two springs then reinforce the slide. Two days ago my slide broke and i was pissed. <_< Trust me with any springs other that the origional renforce the slide.

For your question i would use the better of the two Ls springs and an AR-15 spring it kicks ass.

I have a related question, my LS has the stock spring and an extremely beefy spring that I mod NF's with in it. The beefy NF spring I can barely compress at all with my hands. My blot sled has never shown any signs of stress or breakage. Should I reinforce it? I don't understand why it would break, because it seems like when the bolt is all the way forward the plunger head slams into the black piece which gets pushed against the front of the plunger tube. Do the sleds ussually break because there is actually a bit of space between the black cylindrical piece and the front of the PT?

Two LS springs will not compress. Not even two of the new, wimpier springs.

The new and the old springs are the same diameter(?); I'd imagine if you're using a spring from an older gun. As far as reinforcing, like tantumbull, I've never had a boltsled crack or show signs even with stronger springs, however, because of the power it did put a nice crack around the top of the plunger tube (almost a complete circle). It crippled my gun. I tried to fix it. It still works but it shoots worse than stock now. It's a LS/AR-15 combo.

All of you nerfers who think your guns are invincible when it comes to cracked boltsleds, It takes time to break but it will break if the sled is not reinforced!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :blink:

That really didn't answer any of my questions. I think I'll reinforce it anyway just to be safe, though. I'll probably epoxy on some bent coat hanger wire.

Epoxy Paste will stiffen the flexibility within the sled, probably making the life longer of it. It will not save it, but it will help dampen the time.
