Hello!
I was messing around with a Nite finder spring, and I saw with some force you can stretch it to be as long as a stock Alpha Trooper (AT) spring. They have practically the same diameter, though the AT spring is a bit less. Has anyone tested firing a AT with a Nite Finder spring? I know that OMW has a replacement spring, I just want to find suitable substitutes.

Stretching springs doesn't work, it will return to the same size after firing it a few times and be weaker overall. McMaster sells many types of springs and if you're willing to spend the time looking through their catalog for something that is a close enough match that's your best bet. IMO, just buy the OMW one, I think there's a Worker one too.

The [k26] fits nicely, but I'll need to cut it down in order to cram it in.

Has a [k26] in a elite alpha trooper been tested before? I assume I would need to reinforce a lot of stuff aswell

I think one of the alpha trooper mods in the directory did a spring change that should give you an idea of what would need to be reinforced if anything.

What and where could I find the highest KG Spring that would fit (without cutting or stretching) that would work?

Most springs you might have to cut, the other option is if you have say a longshot or similiar you may be able to nest a second spring with the original and increase the power that way.

McMaster also sells non-cut to length springs. Although you can easily cut springs with a dremel or bolt cutters (actually a really useful tool to have fkr Nerf).

How much power would a OMW Alpha trooper kit spring add compared to stock? (On their website, their spring is 5+kg, while stock is 2.5kg

The OMW kit spring would give it a good bit of pop, just be sure to replace all the components in the kits since as you increase spring power other aspects needs replacement or reinforcement
