UN yes but i'm just wondering if it will break it.
Most likely. Your best bet is to reinforce the boltsled with coathangers, or aluminum. Alternatively, you could order an aluminum longshot boltsled, and never have to worry about it.

Yes, it will.

Clearly what you're looking for is someone to give you a money back guarantee that you can add a BBB spring and yours won't break.
Hey, no problem. I promise to refund nothing when ... er, I mean if it breaks. You have to post pictures to prove it though.

In either event, just reinforce it with any of the methods people have mentioned if you're worried about it breaking. It's probably worth the time and effort put into it.

Yes, they are made with a mold and are pretty consistent in terms of strength. But, there are still a ton of variences with them.
As Brit says, some won't even survive one prime with a BBB spring addition. However, I have a Longshot with a Recon spring (slightly [VERY slightly] weaker than a BBB spring), a stock silver spring, and a Nitefinder spring, and I haven't had any problems yet. And that's with well over 2000 primes.
So it's a gamble either way, but I'd say it's safe to give it a try. However, don't come bitch and moan to us if it breaks because we can't fucking predict the future.
... to be able to get a better burst or sustained fire, rather than blowing the whole load at once.

Mine cracked after about 100 primes with a spring addition (after probably 1000 primes with the stock spring only) and it cracked. All I had to do was epoxy some wire pieces on and had no problems since.

Longshot spring- Not very likely to break bolt sled.
Big Bad Bow Spring- Not very likely to break bolt sled.
Big Bad Bow and Longshot Spring- Likely to break due substantial stress.
Big Bad Bow and Longshot Spring with reinforcements- Won't break.
Put the 10 extra minutes in to reinforce it, you'll be glad you did.

I'm the only respectable person here. The rest of the NIC are pretty much just child molesters.

My advice is to air on the side of caution and reinforce whatever you would like not to break. Now, I'm closing this thread before people assume it's a catch all "will this break my gun" thread.
OMG, I can't believe exactly what I said would happen just happened...like, just before I wrote this. I'm a fucking internet prophet!
