I was cleaning my room today and found the spring to a very old nerf gun. I believe it's called the Monoshot but here's a picture anyways:

Sadly, I have lost the gun and only have the spring. I was wondering if I could/should repalce the Nite Finder's spring with this one or if I should double up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How much stronger is the Monoshot spring compared to the NF spring? How much harder is it to compress? If it's too hard, I don't think that the case could take the added pressure, and neither would the plunger/barrel assembly.

I wouldn't, The nf is good as it is a pistol. Mod it right and it'll be all you need as a sidearm, the last thing it needs is a spring replacement.

On the new EX-3, the springs suck ass.

So nothing a couple of bands can't fix, and one more o-ring on the plungerhead. But while all you guys are complaining about the new nf's suckage, I'm pretty sure it's all the same internals so maybe it's just your gun.

It's the same internals, minus the spring, which is weaker. If it was just my gun, why would everyone else be having the same problems as well. I know bands would help but I despise them. I prefer the cleaner look where its all on the inside (if I can help it), I don't like things getting caught or snagged or snapped.

Well back on topic, luke what kinda NF do you have? If it's old I'd leave it be and stretch the spring a little. If it's the new one measure the springs to eachother and cut to appropriate length only if it seems stronger than your old one. Otherwise just stretch your new spring as well and add some bands. And maybe some e-tape around the plungerhead for a better seal.

It's the Orange and Blue Nite Finder and I'm getting 80 ft. flat. No lie. i know because mine and my neighbors lots are both 41 ft each and it shoots over both of them. So you guys are probably right. Why screw around with it when it already kicks ass.

A day later, but who cares.

I found that my local Farm and Fleet sells a perfect spring that to replace the nf's stock spring (and yes, the orange and yellow version is much weaker).

The measurements of the spring were:

7/8 x 4 x .080 in.

They came two to a pack, and are definitely stronger than even the original nitefinder.

Monoshots are pretty powerful, tearing darts un-modded. When I had my modded one, it got 60-70ft I think. It's a great little gun. I sold my other one though..

Get a few darts and test ranges with each spring using the same few darts. See which is better. I did this when I swapped an armorshot spring out with the NF spring.

ArmorShot spring > NF spring.
