Hi there guys, I am still kind of new to nerf modding so I was wondering if you could help me out. I am planning on modding a longshot soon. The mod I will be doing is replacing the spring with a OMW 8 kg spring- I have done some spring mods but only on like a hammer shot and a jolt which is I imagine easier then modding a longshot . So now here are my questions.

 

 

1) If I add the 8 kg spring will I need to do anything like add a better catch spring?

 

2) If I add the 8 kg spring will I have to modify the stock using a "stock block" and if so what kind of cpvc or pvc should I use?

 

          Thank you.

Answer is yes to both. Use 1/2 PVC for the stock block. The catch spring can be upgraded using one of the springs from the clip holding part in the stock. It slips right over the stock catch spring and the two together is more than enough.

Thanks so much, if I add the 8 kg spring will I need to upgrade anything else other than the catch spring like the catch its self? Also, 1/2 pvc is like what u rebarrel a bigashock, right? Finally is there a way to purchase a catch spring? A link would be appreciated.

The material used to rebarrel bigshocks(or any blaster to take elite size darts) is 1/2 inch CPVC, which fits into 1/2 PVC (usually). Catch springs can be bought online somewhere like mcmasster or orangemodworks kits (sorry, no link), or taken from pens and things. The catch *italics*should*italics* be strong enough unless it was damaged or stressed by something.

Thanks, if you have ever done a mod like this that needs a new catch spring, what pen brand would you use? Now finally one more question: If I made it 5 kg spring would I have to upgrade the catch spring?

Brand doesn't particularly matter as long as the spring is stronger, I just use the cheapest mechanical pencils I can find at walmart or whatever I don't have to pay for. A 5 kg spring PROBABLY doesn't need a better catch dpring, but I don't have experience with 5 kgs.

A piece of advice, you may want to reinforce your boltsled, the 8kg will produce a lot of stress on the sled, and it will eventually break.

for the stock clock, you don't have to use cpvc or pvc, anything that prevents it from collapsing works. 

I do think youd still need to upgrade the catch spring not one hundred percent sure, but i do think so.
