The spring pictured is carbine spring and is about 10 inches uncompressed. The rifle length spring is about 14 inches. They both have the same k though. I can guarentee you that these springs are more powerful than what comes stock in a Nerf gun. In an AR they slam a 10oz bolt carrier home with very substantial force. I imagine it should move a lightweight plunger more than adequately.

I haven`t had much time to work on the rifle but I have made some progress. I drew up the plans for the action. I had planned on using the AR stock and grip. At this point it doesn`t look like I`m going to. Due to length issues it will be easier to just hosue the AR spring in 1" PVC. I won`t be able to use the grip because of the trigger linkages that will have to be inside the grip. I`m about halfway through fabricating the parts. i`m taking a little different route to building this rifle. I spent a lot of time designing on paper and then I am fabricating the parts from the plans. For the first rifle I mainly had the idea in my head and just designed as I fabricated. That works fine but it leads to a lot of fabricating and refabricating. i`m sure I`ll have to do some of that as I build but hopefully not as much. I`ve gotten the barrel assembly, plunger, bolt, and upper receiver fabricated. That leaves the lower receiver, trigger group, feed ramp, extractor, ejector, and furniture to fabricate. So I did all the easy parts first.......
Anyway, when I get something together that looks more or less like a rfile I`ll post pics. Right now its jsut a clooection of random parts.

Half the reason this project was spawned, is because I have all these extra AR15 parts laying around doing nothing. I do agree that using pre-existing parts kinda takes away from the homemade aspect. But it looks like I`m not gonna use them even if I still wanted to. It looks like the only AR part that will be used is the main spring.
Brilliant truly brilliant, boltsniper. The one criticism I have is the use of the AR grip. Isn't putting an AR grip on a nerf gun like putting a club on a pinto? I'd save the grip for a real firearm or something. Granted it would be unique and very cool, but I feel for your wallet.
