Spring compatibility

I'm building a vsr 10 g spec and I'm installing the custom springer works s trigger 9.2, piston, and spring guide. I'm trying to find a reliable 170 spring to work with the set up. I'm thinking action army (as I've kept reading that some springs dont work to well with the setup. All knowledge is appreciated, thanks guys.

Hi, your rifle has any other upgrades?(cylinder, piston, trigger) I think you already know that you have to upgrade those parts for steel ones before, because if you use an M170 or even an M150 spring will damage your rifle, but if you have all of that I recommend the PDI springs

Look at mother post. I got a bunch more parts I'm installing. I just listed these because they relate directly to the spring. I've been out of the airsoft game for a while and I just wana know what spring will fit with the piston and trigger setup and will have the most longevity.

I hear great things about the rapax springs. I'd recommend getting a 2+ spring, and spring spacers just to increase fps if necessary.
Some people are like slinkies, not really good for much but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs

Agreed. I run RAPAX and have run SBA springs as well in my VSR.

Both are excellent springs, but the with the RAPAX you can usually get around 1J more of force and it won't be any harder to pull than the weaker SBA spring. That is, they're easier to pull than any other spring I've tried for the force they produce.

I run a WASP piston and guide for both of those brands of springs. You can use spacers like Sodium mentioned or change the piston weight to fine tune the power.
