Pump return adjustment

On a few of my pump kits I feel like the spring return is sometimes too light. While others may enjoy this it would be awesome if you guys offered maybe either spacers in one or two different lengths that would be a drop in to increase stiffness or maybe a return spring kit to allow for stiffer springing.

My clear pump handled kit for instance I can see that there is a ton of space left in there however my brand new return spring cant even hold the bolt forward on my marker. Of course I have other options like shortening my pump arm a full centimeter or so but if you guys offered a spring kit, I would buy it and save myself the trouble.

Just a thought.

We tried offering two different tensions and people complained about that. So the simple solution was to find the one that performed the best in conjunction with our product and offer just one.
The return spring is not designed to hold your bolt forward, it is strictly to be a pump assist spring.
I would recommend getting a spring kit and finding which one feels the best for your personal needs, that doesn't hinder your pump stroke and go with it.

yeah, like I said it could ideally be fixed by shortening my pump arm. One of my guns has an abnormally long pump arm so theres a good inch on the pump kit that never gets traveled by the pump handle. If I shortened pump arm the problem would go away it was just a hope for stiffer springs as for my personal preferences, I would need to shorten all my pump arms =P

I'll look into that check it pump spring, thanks for the info.

I went to Ace hardware's spring section and found 2 short springs that fits perfectly into the handle. 1 spring is stiffer and the other softer. I mixed it up to get the perfect feel to it.

If I want the softer pull, I stretch out the softer ones and use 2 of them.

If I want more of a firmer pull, I use 2 stiff spring and 1 soft spring. Some time I even use 3 stiff springs.

you can also place a spacer in the pump handle then the spring. I cut a 1/2" delrin spacer and slid it in there before the spring, works greatt
