So, I was thinking about buying a NIB EAT, and I will want some reinforcements for it because I have an 8kg retaliator/rampage/eat spring and it would break easily. So my first idea is to buy an OMW kit but they are both discontinued. Does anyone know where to get them?

Since they are discontinued, you can't buy them anymore (notice the word discontinued?). The manufacturer (OMW) no longer produces these kits; therefore making it hard to find them new and in box. You can try EBay or kijiji, but don't be surprised if the prices are inflated.

Why have they stopped making them? The blaster isn't discontinued.

The only reinforcnents you really need are for the priming bar. With 8kg it will bend and potentially cause the blaster to not catch. I recommend the Blasterparts.de kit. It comes with a new priming rod and another reinforcement piece for behind the catch.

EDIT: wanted to clarify because I'm tired and didn't proofread. I have no clue how you can get a hold of an OMW kit unfortunately, but in my opinion the kit I recommend has the parts you will need for 8kg, while the OMW kit does not.

You do not need to reinforce anything except the priming bar by epoxying it in place and use a stronger catch.

The EAT was literally only one store away from being discontinued. Kohl's was the only major store in the US still ordering and selling new EATs. However, if you check the Kohl's website, the EAT is no longer available. So for all intents and purposes, it's practically discontinued.

I think he meant that you should reinforce it with epoxy (in the grooves of the Plunger rod), as the plunger rod can snap with the ARs out.

I believe you are mistaken, epoxying the priming bar means building an epoxy channel around the priming bar that connects the pump grip to the bolt sled to prevent it from flexing under the load needed to prime a higher than 5kg spring.

Do you have a guide on how to do this with pictures?

Oh wow, I bought the Blaster parts kit on containment crew not 2 months ago and it's gone now. That's unfortunate. It came with the bar and a hollow plastic plug that stopped the new spring from distorting the plunger rod. That thing leaves welts. 

 

You can still get it here: http://blasterparts....-hr?___store=en

 

I think it's worth purchasing. Even if you destroy an EAT playing the hell out of it, all three parts will fit a new EAT shell fine. They may be discontinued but you can still find them many places.
