I wouldn't put in a larger spring because the stress points behind the plunger are really weak. Try giving it a spring stretch, cook it if you need to. If that doesn't do it for you, get some mini Bungies. And remember, there's nothing like good old making it up, thats what most of us do, so don't expect to have every detailed drawn out for you. Practice makes perfect.
Faine, as a writer an thorough disillusioner of many x-bow mod seekers - i found out after i wrote my mod that there is no good replacement spring for the x-bow that you can find in any standard hardware store. I've never found one in 3 years of looking both in real- and cyber-space. don't replace the spring - don't even think about it. if you are getting shitty performance, the only thing i can point you to that Talio hasn't mentioned is barrel/dart size. The x-bow needs a long barrel, with a relatively constricting piece on the gun end. look at my mod on this site for a great barrel. I have nerfed with no one with a better x-bow barrel system than mine*
*neonerfer's x-bow rocks mine anyday, but his barrel system is the same. He also uses a very strong bungee - which i would recommend to anyone. bungees are good.
