So recently i have been at working on a longshot. I finished working on it and was getting around 30 feet with a CS stephen, and 29 feet with a hot glue tip streamline(Glint's kind).

The mods i have done are: ar removal, reinforced catch spring, added a nf spring and an industrial spring(weeker than a ace #49 spring), improved ph seal, and i lubricated the plunger tube.

I believe i should be getting better ranges.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

P.S.
I won't be able to get pics for about couple of weeks from now.

Everyone here knows I am partial to LS's, so I will attempt to help:

1. What did you "Improve the plungerhead seal" with?---double O-ring?...E-Tape?...Teflon tape? You may not have as good a seal as you think you do, or perhaps too good of one. A seal that is too tight will slow down the plunger motion and cause issues.
2. Your A/R removel----did you remove it completely, or just drill a hole through it? If it has not been completely removed your ranges will suffer.
3. What did you " lube the plunger assembly" with? The wrong type of lube could cause either break down of the O-ring, or "Sticktion"---which is a goofy word for the lube acting similar to an adhesive.

I sincerely hope this is of at least some benefit.----Rogue.

Thanks Rogue

I used e-tape under my o-ring, and i used a silicone spray in a yellow can.
The fit on the o-ring is pretty good.

When i get my kink out what should my ranges most likely be at?

Hard to say---but with the springs you are using I would think 60'+ would be easily reached.---Rogue.

I'm also having Longshot troubles. I did all the modifications he mentioned, but I only used two Maverick springs. I'm hitting about 35 ft. Should I be getting better ranges? And if not, could some one sell me a BBB spring. PM me please.

If it feels hard to pump, stop.

Make sure of two things.

1: You have the dart tooth in the gun.
2: You have covered the hole in the stock breech with etape or something.

That's all I can say.

I've both of those components in my gun. I covered the breech hole with hot glue and it's held out so far. Are there any other reasons that it would be performing below par?

The breech hole, like the one a coupe inches away from the plunger tube?

I have not covered that yet?
