I got no idea why my last x-bows lasted so long, I was a fucker to them.
I would strongly suggest heavily reenforcing the plunger, latch mechanism, and the posts that the spring sits against and using external bungi cords or industrial rubber bands. You can replace the spring (obviously) but I wouldn't suggest it based on experience. No matter what you do, though, you must reenforce the plunger, etc. If you do not reenforce, some parts will inevitably break no matter which strategy you use.
After a half-assed attempt at a search (3 times) I turned up nothing, so lemmy just ask this here:
Why shouldn't we replace a crossbow's spring? I did that on Mickey, switched it for I believe a Big Bad Bow spring that wasn't so weathered. I wonder this because I just figured a spring of higher tension would be just as bad as an elastic. Perhaps worse on the plunger and the deal that keeps the spring inside the tube (something I yanked out and replaced with a solid plexi-glass piece), but I'd like to make sure. I was thinking of buying a crossbow and doing the unthinkable, sticking on a bow to make it look like a crossbow! (Can you say short hunting bow?)
