MemphisMechanic Posted June 8, 2009 Share Posted June 8, 2009 (edited) The hop-up tool adjusts the back-spin that the gun puts on the BBs. Mine is set for the tightest headshot group possible at 10 yards (which is pushing max range)... and I still have your issue. Especially since I only have one magazine. Shoot fast, and the mag freezes. Lower temps = less pressure from the same amount of gas. Leaving your mag out in the sun, and switching mags, should help this. My solution so far has been itty-bitty targets about 15 feet away. It hits before it begins to hook.1 I have a buddy with a CNC Plasma-cutter at work. I'm going to have him cut me a bunch of 3" diameter circles to make a plate rack out if, and a bunch of pepper poppers. I've figured out that 16ga sheetmetal is impervious to airsoft (200 rounds, zero marks) but it falls reliably. I tried thinner stuff, and it dented the bejeezus out of the plates. Oh, I've chrono'd mine with both green gas and the WalMart propane bottles I use now. It's never been outside of 300-318 fps until the mag starts to run dry, with either gas. I found the EXACT same velocities with my buddy's 1911 (WE Hi-Capa 5.1) Some of the airsoft-teenaged-dorks websites say propane isn't as powerful. But the chrono doesn't lie.
