I recently took all of the air restrictors out of my LS and added a stronger spring and it works great; with the darts that it came with. I can't get any stephans to fire further than two feet and all other Nerf darts always get jammed in the gun. Is there anyone who knows what might be the problem? Thanks.

They are too big.

Only streamline, and some stephans work, along with CTDS.

Define "all other darts." If you use stock darts that have heads with a wider diameter than the foam, such as suction-cupped darts or stock taggers, then they are bound to jam. The streamlined darts have such small heads because they need to fit in the breach and allow a good seal. A head with a larger diameter than the rest of the dart would make this impossible. Also, you can fill the open space in the streamlines with hot glue to improve range and accuracy.

Yeah I know that, but I would rather just eliminate the streamlines from the equation. Do you know how to make normal stephans fire well in the LS?

Try and make them longer and have less weight on the tip.

Just try stretching the stephans. They're probably to big. That or they're too small, and you'll have to make new ones. And stephans won't work unless you take out the post.

Do this if you want to fire stefans.

Sure. the foam sold by Dwldworld, Modman, dartseller, and forsaken all fit well.

Infact, every stephan should work fine...
