Try the mcmaster k27 spring. Works reasonably well for me.

The stock Sledgefire spring has a strength of a [k26] (~12kg), so there aren't too many springs that are stronger.
Maybe an ace 69? Or maybe add some spring rather than a replacement.

I don't recommend the century c-836 as it is a pain in the ass to install due to the rough inch of precompression it has (i cut my hands and bruised my fingers) and it isnt actually much of an upgrade to the stock spring. Instead i highly recommend the century spring corp c-792 spring. It is ALOT tougher than the c-836 (feels about 20kg) and isnt so much of a pain to install. I know 20 kg's probably seems like a bit much, BUT my slegefire has been running it for a while now and is showing absolutely no signs of ware and it is still really easy to prime. You don't need to replace the catch spring either, in case you were wondering.

Is there any particular reason why you don't cut the spring to a more suitable length? If it is because of a lack of tools, bolt cutters or a dremel will do it quickly and easily; most hardware stores will even have a store use pair of bolt cutters you could use for free.

The reason i didn't cut the spring is purely because if the the spring is cut, then one exposed, single coil will be present at the end of the spring instead of the flat coil of wire that is at each end after the spring comes out of production. This one small area of contact will concentrate the forces exerted by the spring to one, confined area therefore increasing overall stress in that area. This will greatly reduce the durability and structural integrity of your spring rest/plunger head and is likely to cause that part to crack or fracture. Plus it pretty much defeats the purpose of a simple low-effort spring replacement which from what i gather is the whole point of this mod.
