SLR CQB tapper plate spring

What happen if i shorten the tapper plate spring?
Shorten spring mean stiffer and faster?
Is it good or bad idea?

a stiffer / quicker return spring is a good thing

modifying a spring to do it may lead to excess wear and tear on the spring and premature failure.

net outcome, your pew pew becomes a drip drip and you get the walk of shame to spawn to collect your backup…or the backup’s backup…

i’ve done this a bunch of times and its really contingent on the spring quality.

a similar but alternate method to check nozzle seal

  1. have tappet, cylinder, head, nozzle etm in box as normal - half shell
  2. tape off gel feed hole (or bluetack)
  3. marry t piece to box - you should see the tappet move back ever so slightly
  4. blow down the barrel
  • if you encounter resistance you have a good nozzle seal
  • if your tappet moves back more than a mm or two you are probably going to suffer from nozzle bounce - more problematic with rubber tips
  • you will hear any leak if you have one
