In Topic: Quick catch mechanism question

23 June 2017 - 09:12 AM

Ok, so I've recently upgraded my Longshot to a ~6.5-8kg spring. To handle the increase in spring power, I added two extra springs to the stock catch. It catches fine, but I am encountering what may or may not be an issue. So the prime weight is fine, but when I get to the last cm or draw stroke, I kind of have to force it back with some more pressure. I'm assuming this is because of the extra catch springs, causing more downwards force. Thus me having to force it back more. Is this normal for blasters with a stronger catch? Also, will this eventually break the stock catch mechanism?


I do not know if it will break the original catch but I think it is totally not a problem.

I believe you are mistaken, epoxying the priming bar means building an epoxy channel around the priming bar that connects the pump grip to the bolt sled to prevent it from flexing under the load needed to prime a higher than 5kg spring.

Do you have a guide on how to do this with pictures?

You do not need to reinforce anything except the priming bar by epoxying it in place and use a stronger catch.

Are trying to troll me? Why the f would I epoxy the priming bar in place?

In Topic: Magnus + Retaliator Catch spring

I'm not 100% sure on this, but the catch spring may not be the issue. The Magnus spring's diameter may be too large, thus interfering with the actual catch. When you prime it back, the spring may be binding with the catch, not allowing the blaster to properly prime. Watch a "can it take a [k26]" vid on the retaliator if you don't get what I'm saying.
Otherwise, pen springs make a good addition to the stock catch for more power.

Do you have a solution to this magnus spring binding to the catch? Do you have any recommendations on the pens for the catch?

I try to host monthly so I hope you can make it to One. Also I suggest you join Pacific West North Nerf (pwnn) and Olympia Foam Society in Facebook. I'm the only one from either who posts to nerfhaven so you are missing out on a lot of wars

Doesn't green spike post these wars too? I've been to a couple wars, Fort Borst 2 and 3 and WINshington 1 and 2. I also check PWNN and I am in OFS
