Ok, I've been wanting a couple of these for my KRISS and LM4 for a while. How do you get them? And if I can order them through you a PM would be cool and we can work something out maybe.

Interested to see the results! Definitely looks stronger with that larger plate pushing down on the bucking. Hoping this is the be all end all solution to the plagued hop up of the LM4.

Great to know BOOBIEM4H is testing this out. I think that the wider arm will really help get better hop up with heavier Bbs. It will also be interesting how it works with the blue ratech bucking where the original arm was too soft for the harder silicon and would loose tension making it inconsistent.

It's not released yet, Boobie has connections. Though considering that Boobie got one, that means it'll probably be released soon.

Super excited for this.  I love the flat contact area, very reminiscent of what makes the R-Hop so successful.

That kit is listed on RA-Tech, but not on AST yet.

I'm assuming it is this kit:
http://en.ratech.com...=110&Itemid=232

Is there no option to get just the arm? That would be nice for those of us that just want to upgrade an RAT LM4 barrel and hop-up.

I'm really curious to see this compared to the RAT LM4 hop-up and the bucking compared to the new Guarder.

If it uses the same hop up as the m-series then yes.

M-series and ATP use the traditional ball bearing hop up system. This piece is not compatible with those design of guns. But is compatible with the HK45 and Vector due to the fact that it shares the same hop up system as the LM4.

On second note, it DOES say it is compatible with the m series pistols. And it replaces the entire hop up system.... It's not just one piece. If it fits, then it must be compatible. We won't know unless someone becomes the guinea pig on this.

Yes..this is suppose to "upgrade" your old style ball bearing hop up in the m series pistols. It comes with hop up housing, bucking, tbb, tensioners and c clip. Suppsie to be a direct drop in replacement of the old style..basically a conversion kit if you will.

Man, you're always getting the new tech!  This looks really promising.  The hopup lever looks much sturdier than the original brass OEM one.  Let us know how the hopup fairs in comparison to the guarder.  Good luck!
