Hey,

Did a voltage mod on my stampede, now it's exhibitting the "runaway" behaviour. Have openned it up and done a little trouble shooting. Problem seems to be the Black bolt return spring that can be seen through the plastic window on the side. diameter is a bit larger than a recon's breech.

Would a recon's spring work?
maverick?

Just need a few suggestions on where I can get a spring to make my blaster work properly again. I ask largely because thisspring is not included in any of the spring upgrade kits i've seen floating around.

Threw what i think is a scout mainspring in there, it helped, but hasn't actualyl solved teh problem. It now fires short bursts of irregular length on a single trigger pull. looks like i'm just goign to have to drop down to 12 volts.

The stock return spring should be enough even for a voltage mod. I run my stampede at about 16V, using the stock return spring and it was fine. You may need to upgrade the catch spring or the spring that controls the catch disengagement ramp.

If you really wish to replace the return spring, the follower spring from the buzzbee tek rapid fire rifle clip might be a good add-on or replacement.....

Did you do anything else? like replacing the o-ring or something? maybe you should lube the PT.......

Your catch control spring probably needs to be realigned, or better yet replaced. More info here: http://modworks.blog...rol-spring.html

Alright, couldn't post sooner. Work and such.

I ended up replacing the return spring, the plunger spring, and the plunger control spring

a Sharpshot provided teh return spring (stretched to same length), a tek 6 provided the plunger spring (slightly stretched to match length) and a bic pen provided teh catch control spring.

Soon I hope to put a video up. Can empty a 6 ound mag in under a second.
