I have bought the kit for the Retaliator, and can say that the kit is easy to install and instructions clear, but may not be worth the money. With the kit installed, the Retaliator can shoot about 90 feet. All you need to do to install the kit is remove the stock spring and replace it with the modded spring, put the upgraded catch spring on the metal catch mechanism and replace the stock catch mechanism with that. Then, you put the metal reinforcement plate in the stock adapter.
Even though there is only a 15 foot range increase, I feel the kit is worth it.
Yeah I don't mind paying the $18 for a 15-foot increase. I feel like it is worth it. So I would buy the Stage 1 kit but I have heard, the metal trigger from the stage two kit is slow and the priming slide requires much more effort, is that true?
OMW is not the only kit maker. The Australians have one and Blaster Parts exists. Blaster Parts can be sourced in the US through Containment Crew. All offer tons of upgrade at different Price points. Will you be doing a Brass Breech mod or installing a pump grip? The OMW stuff isn't as good as the other options in my opinion. Stage 1 is good I feel the Oz Nerf Nerd kit was just as good though. Stage 2 is unnecessary in my experience if you know how to pad a plunger. I have not broken a bolt sled even with a Blaster Parts spring and a brass breech. But I do take meticulous care of my blasters, Some may say too much.
I'm not doing a brass breach just because I feel the breach is alright as it is so I don't really see the need to reinforce it after the stage 2 kit. I'm also not going install a pump grip because I think the priming slide is fine (for me.) I have heard of Oz Nerf Nerd but I have seen the kit and I think it just comes with the spring and some other thing which I don't know. I don't know how to pad the plunger head. I assume it's like applying felt on the plunger head?
Does anyone know about the LS kit?
