Well I've got my new longshot. I installed a Big Bad Bow spring in it however the catch was too weak and continuously released at unwanted times. I fixed this by using this very easy process.

Simply cut about 1 cm off the end of a dart.

Then push in between the shell and the catch plate. Put the catch's spring in the hole in the dart. This adds resistance to the spring making the catch stronger.

This is a quick easy way to make BBB springs function well in Longshots.

Thanks for reading,
:D Nerfchild :D

You know that that will not solve the breaking of the boltsled problem.

I'm about 100% sure he didn't even mentiona a boltsled in this topic...

And nice solution, although I don't think it will last a long time as the foam will weaken.

Whoever said that it would fix the boltsled problem?

I like it, though a think more springs should come first, that way the foam is not smashed as much.
Speaking of foam smashing, how often would you think that you have to replace the foam 'nub'?

Damn it rokor, you beat me.

No, this just reinforces the catch. Like it says in the title.

On topic: Nice use of easy simple stuff.

Edit: Wow I must be a pretty slow typer, because two other people beat me while I was composing a reply.

Yes this mod was only done to reinforce your catch with some easy materials. I would have used springs however I dod not have any at that time :P. And to who ever sa
id It wouldn't fix the bolt sled problem... I never said it would.

For springs you can use the springs found in pens.

Yes it does interfere with that however you don't need it to know if the gun is primed. The trigger is stiffer when the gun is charged.

Thanks for this solution, my catch plate had been giving me problems and I don't have a hot glue gun and wasn't quite understanding the spring addition solutions, this worked perfectly :)
