First bit of modding with blasterparts

So last night while the missus was watching some rubbish on the telly I did my first bit of modding.
Pretty straightforward stuff,  spring upgrades to the lawbringer and sledgefire and a metal upgrade for the hammershot all from blasterparts.

The lawbringer was crying out for a bit more oomph and the spring swap couldn't be simpler. The prime is a lot harder now but not unmanageable and it's transformed the performance , Its much more able to hold its own now and I'd say the extra power has improved it's slightly wayward accuracy.

The sledgefire was a little bit more tricky as I couldn't figure out how to remove the spring retainer, but after watching the MTB  mod guide on YouTube this was a fairly straight swap out as well. The stock spring was fairly beefy to start with so there wasn't as much of a marked power increase but it does seem to fire with a bit more crack and as a result the dart spread seems slightly increased.

Hammershot metal parts and upgrade spring, watched another guide and completed fairly quickly. I used a small bolt to help knock through the retaining pins, even being careful the original part didn't hold up well and isn't suitable for reuse, mind you I can't see me needing it.
Performance is up on this one too but I guess the weight of the hammer cancels out some of the spring power, it is pretty sweet though and makes fanning the gun a bit more do'able.
All in all, much more fun than watching the voice.

Watch out for wear on the end of the hammer where it contacts the metal sear/trigger assembly on the Hammershot, I would get some lithium grease on it as an interim measure, I have seen two failed ones on the web elsewhere this month. Keep the original parts then if yours fails you can still use the Spring.
Well done on your mods, nothing beats that sense of achievement when you shoot them modded the first few times.

Cheers I'll get onto that. As I say the original hammer assembly took a hit on this one.
Yeah really enjoyed the tinkering,  great fun.

Perhaps a bit off topic, but some line breaks would make your post much more readable. Just something for the future.

I didn't even know that someone did a spring for the sledgefire! I thought it was already a super beefy one - have you tried one of the singled shells and tested the range/power with just a single shot?

Metal Hammershot - I found that when I had a go with Dark Kittens' metal modded Hammershot, that the draw was just too hard for me to fan it effectively. I'm coming to the conclusion that i'm just a wuss... Smile

Congratulations though! Like OldNoob says, that sense of achievement when it all works and the satisfying 'thunk' of the upgraded shots is amazing. I think I might be addicted to it

Not sure about the sledgefire spring tbh I don't have enough experience yet. But your right the original is pretty heavy already.
The new one was a tiny bit harder to compress by hand.

Bearing in mind my testing is very rudimentary based on the facts that I think it has a louder "crack" now on firing and the darts seem to hit my bathroom door with a louder "thwack".

Sorry I don't have a specialised single shot shells  (yet)

You're less of a wuss than I was when I started. Back then, I was struggling with a 5kg NiteFinder, now I use a 10 like it's nothing. It's all about practice I assure you, though the priming mechanism does make a difference.

Yeah, my non re-lubed full metal Hammershot gave itself some nasty friction burns, with the metal hammer grinding away the shell plastic with every shot. Don't let yours reach the same stage of self destruction.

Use lube!  Very Happy
