Hey all. I have many springs in my workshop but none are the size of or have the modding capabilities of a longshot spring that i think. Does anyone know of a place to buy springs or of a spring that is about the same length or longer (can be cut), same power, and width of a longshot spring. Thanks!

I know that Ace #49 springs are good for LS's, or Home Depot has a pack of 4 springs 2 big springs (about the same paower as #49 springs) and 2 very powerful springs that are like 1" in height (they wouldnt work).

Just another side note for you Cappy. Make sure whenever you put a stronger spring in a gun, add reinforcement. If you are already aware of this, then sorry for posting, but I just hate seeing Nerf guns crack.

ACE #49s work well, although I find them a bit over-powered in some applications.

I use [k26] and [k25] springs for my projects. The come in 1ft sections, so you can cut them down to the lengths you need. I use a [k26] spring in my longshot, with good results. The [k26] is slightly weaker than the ACE #49, and the [k25] is similar in strength and width to the Big Bad Bow spring.
