Hey!
Since I installed my new spring for the longstrike, I'am having trouble priming it with one hand.
The bolt will be pulled on one side, which makes the boltsled tilt. Because of this I get more jams, reloading issues (because the plunger isn't going flush into the dart reciever)

Do you guys perhaps know a way to still be able to prime with one hand, but not having these issues.
Yes, the spring is from OMW, I'll also contact their enigeers, but perhaps one of you has had the same problem, and found a fix for it!

Open the blaster and make sure everything lines up correctly before putting it together. Nine times out of ten this will solve problems like that. You could also search the OMW forum, which would probably contain a solution if the spring load is causing it. Good Luck!

If opening it and reassembling it doesn't fix your problem, add a fore-grip and make it pump action.

Do you have any idea how complicated making a longstrike pump action is? The shell is not conducive to such mods so extensive modification would be required.

taerKitty pooped on your face.

Maybe, scouts9III, you could do a simple search for longstrike foregrip to find several solutions. Ignorance is no excuse for misinformation. This is especially true when the tools to peruse the last 9 years of modifications are at your fingertips.

Ofcourse I did that, but I'am sure that's not the problem, it also works good, with two hands! But that's not what I want to end up with. Also a Pomp action longstrike isn't a solution, there must be a way to just use the current mechanism (bolt) without getting all these jams!

Your problem lies in the fact that that gun needs a relatively straight-back pull.

Try just changing your method, bracing the stock against your bicep and cocking, pushing the gun into your cocking hand at the same time? It works for me.
