I integrated my ls front gun into the ls but the front gun doesn't seem to catch. So I took it off, opened it up put a strionger spring on the catch and even shortend the gun's spring a little bit. But it still didn't catch, (it wouldn't stay cocked), any ideas on what to do?

Try taking apart the gun and putting it back together. You may have put the catch in wrong, or a lot of the times, you fix the gun without knowing it. You should also tell us if you have done any other mods to it, because they can have an impact on the catch.

What I also do is to take the spring off and see if it can catch without it.

I hope this helps!

Well, I,ve done the procedure of taking it appart and putting it back together about 5 times. Yet, still no catch, the only mod I've done to it is removing the air restricter.

A picture of the internals would help. The LSFG is pretty finniky when it comes to part placement (well, practically every gun is), and there might be something in the wrong place. Or in the ight place, but the wrong way or something.

Here's a shot from the internals directory, does yours look any different?

Look in the highlighted areas for problems:
  • The catch on the plunger tube, make sure it isn't worn down
  • The rotating arm, make sure the pivot isn't gummed up
  • The gap where the trigger pin rides, make sure it slides through smoothly

In my opinion, the amount of trouble that it takes to get this thing into a good, working, well-shooting condition isn't worth the power you get out of it.

The picture is exactally the same. But I don't know whats wrong with it, I took the main spring out and it worked flawlessly(it always caught) - then I put it back in and it didn't work. I don't get it, its the stock spring that hardly gives any power. How would it not catch? I haven't streched or done anything to the sping.

It sounds like you linked the main trigger to the front gun trigger right? On the front gun the plunger has grooves on each side. You have to make sure the plunger grooves are connected on the walls of the shell, and that the plunger can slide smoothly.

If you cut into those walls, which you had to if you linked both triggers by wire, make sure the cuts are smooth and the walls fit into the grooves of your plunger. Then it should catch every time.

Add a bigger catch spring, or add a few coils from a bigger spring underneath the "U" shaped part of the catch. Also cocking it faster helps in most cases.

Sorry for the double post but, I have another question. Since I'm not getting amazing ranges with my longshot would it be too powerful for the plunger if I had a 3'rd gen nitefinder spring, a recon spring and a longshot spring in it? Would the plunger break?

No, but you should re-enforce the catch spring and the stock.
