Spring tuning for dartblasters? How does it work?
Spring tuning for dartblasters is designed to give your blaster more shooting power and range with the help of a stronger tension spring. The included spring is removed and replaced with a stronger spring designed for the blaster. But what does the conversion to a tuning spring look like? In general, the blaster has to be unscrewed and the two halves taken apart. The plunger assembly, which contains the piston (also known as the plunger) and the tension spring, is then removed. The spring is then replaced with the performance spring from Blasterparts and the blaster is reassembled. The blaster has significantly more power afterwards. We have tuning springs for NERF and other popular blasters, and you can also tune an X-Shot Blaster or Buzzbee Blaster with our springs.
Power enhancement through spring tuning works for all blasters that are made ready to fire with a tension spring. These are most non-electric blasters that are primed with a cock, pump handle or charging lever. Automatic blasters, however, have a different mechanism. They are operated with motorized flywheels. Flywheels, cages and motors for tuning automatic blasters can of course also be found here. Automatic blasters can also be tuned with stronger batteries and dummy batteries.

Tried and tested! Blasterparts tuning springs deliver what they promise!
Before a spring is approved by us for a blaster and goes on sale, it undergoes precise tests and is installed and tested by us in advance. We test the strength of the new spring and also how it affects the mechanics of the blaster. Springs that are too strong or cheap can quickly destroy the inner workings of the blaster. Our springs all come with some special features: The tuning springs from Blasterparts have double-wound ends and are ground flat at the end coil. This means they rest much better on the contact surfaces in the blaster. The amount of performance gain thanks to our tuning springs depends heavily on the blaster in question, but with Blasterparts springs you are always on the safe side.
Why are dart blasters tuned with springs
There can be many different reasons why someone adds a tuning spring to their dartblaster. On the one hand, there is the pure handicraft aspect. It's fun to tinker with the colorful blasters and make more out of the simple children's toy. Collectors spend a lot of time exploring the inner workings of dartblasters and getting the most out of them. Sometimes just to see how far the foam darts can really fly. The fascination for this is hard to explain if you haven't tried it yourself.
Then there are blaster hobbyists who tune their blasters for competitions. There are various types of dart battles and many of them also involve battles with tuned blasters. This gives the topic a sporty aspect.
And then there is the topic of live role-playing games (LARP). In other words, playing in a fantasy world using costumes and role-playing. Especially in end-time LARP, tuned and modded blasters are used as a harmless means of displaying real firearms.
