I only ask because I'm thinking of trying these and it would suck if the balls got all covered with hairs after a while.

1. There is almost no need to add the bbb spring and keep the original in there. I modded a Longshot for my girlfriend and took out the stock spring to make the pull a bit easier for her. It seems to get identical ranges as the guns with both springs.
2. The large air restrictor isn't really all that important. Two of my longshots have the large air restrictors removed and two don't. One of each has the post removed as well. The ranges are identical on all of them. The only real difference seems to be that the two with air restrictors still in them are much quieter and get far less spin-outs. The range is just about identical. Of course, with a modded barrel I'm sure it makes a huge difference, but if you haven't modded the barrel yet and plan on using the stock darts from time to time, I suggest leaving the big air restrictor in there. Also, the guns with posts still in them seem to fire the stock darts more effectively (though still with some spiraling).
3. One last thing is if you can find a slightly stiffer spring to put on the catch mechanism, that seems to be an area that needs improvement. The catch is sort of touchy. My first three mods didn't have any problem, but the latter two were a bit too touchy on the trigger and occasionally fired on their own. If you can upgrade that little spring I think that would solve any problems in that area.

Someone already has a step by step, I believe, or at least an outline of how to do a barrel mod on the longshot. I would personally suggest PETG rather than brass simply because brass is going to add a lot of unwanted weight to the front end of the gun.
Could you link me? I don't mind brass, because I like a little weight to my guns. I'll probably end up putting little weights all over the back of the gun just to balance it out.
