Hi!

I did a full mod to the Nerf Sharpfire (removed air restrictor, brass tubing in the barrel, remove locks, etc.) However I haven't bought the replacement spring yet. Would the 5kg spring from OMW for the Retaliator work in it (i.e. would it function properly and improve performance)?

Thanks for your help!

Yes, the 5KG OMW spring will work. Did that with mine but threaded it with the original spring as the OMW spring is shorter. Thing fires like a beast. I've gotten readings up to 129fps. I left the ratcheting system in place to prevent any finger losses.

*shameless plug* but I have it for sale on ebay right now, Ebay Link

Thanks for your advice! Sounds great, I'll go ahead and order the OMW spring. And yes, I was planning on leaving in the locks as well for that reason :) Also, have you had any problems with the catch wearing down under the increased pressure, or is it pretty durable?

I didn't get to stress test the catch much, but you will notice the trigger will be a bit harder to pull.

Does it always have to be this way?
I just installed the worker 7kg spring and it almost seems counterproductive. I mean, it's under so much pressure and pulling the trigger requires a little extra force, and I imagine that might have a negative on aiming/accuracy.

So does anyone have suggestions regarding this? Also regarding the catch spring, is it necessary to change that too or can the original be left in?
