Step 11: Spring Guns - Spring Replacement
Replacing the spring on a gun is very simple. You first must choose your spring. If it is necessary, you must cut down your spring to a length very close to that of the stock spring. A spring should be cut either with bolt cutters, or a Dremel with a cut-off wheel attachment. Other tools might break if used to cut a spring. Once your spring is cut, it is ready to be put in your gun. You can remove the plunger head (usually by unscrewing it) then take out the old spring. You can then put the new spring in its place. Other approaches to spring replacements include adding an extra spring and even stretching the stock spring. However, stretching your spring can cause it to break later, so it is not recommended by experienced Nerfers.
