Cover the hole with e-tape, and if you modded it to shoots stefans, hot/superglue that orange part you took off back on.

Can you show us some internal pics?

Are you sure you put it back together properly? I would think you may have cracked the barrel or screwed up the seal. Internal pictures of your gun may help.

This may help...

4 words for you -

Part. Placement. Is. EVERYTHING.

Use CaptainSlug's diagram. Your first step would be to make sure EVERYTHING is in place.

If a part is in crooked, it could be reducing airflow to the dart.

Make sure you put the O-ring back on, also make sure the dart tooth is in place properly

EDIT: Damnit ilzot, beat me to the part placement idea

You should check your seal on the plunger head.

The yellow balls are also slightly smaller in diameter than the green ones.

By getting off of Haven.

Make sure that the plunger tube and bolt sled are correctly placed in the groves that are there.

Don't mod a longshor if you don't know how.

BTW: Longshots suck unless they have been angel breeched.

I singled my longshot today (I play indoors with taggers so its a pretty decent gun) and i also had a problem with this. It took me about 2 min, but if you look you will see a peg type thing; just align that with the hole located on the interior of the shell. It should pop right into place and then give you your desired results

Sorry people, I have a question to add to this thread - would I hit 100+ if I used a 3rd gen nightfinder spring or a first gen recon spring along with the ls spring? I can hit 93 feet with the recon spring added
