What's a good replacement hop-up unit for the Tactical???? I know that it has a two piece hop-up. Will the systema hop-up work???? How about the hop-up bucking??? I found online that the systema bucking might not fit.

Unless, I missed it, yes I have gone through the forum! All it mentions is the bucking, not the actual hop-up.

If you look at the title and first part of this thread, I'm asking about the whole hop-up unit not just bucking. The hop-up bucking comes secondary to the whole hop-up unit I'm asking about. And I did see that thread! I wouldn't be posting this thread if it answered my question. All the 3rd Compatibility List has is the hop-up bucking. Yes, I know its number 5 on the list, but again, I'm asking about the whole hop-up unit. If there is a good metal replacement for it.

Why would you replace the hop-up unit anyway?

I put a Prometheus Neo strike chamber in my KWA, it is very similar to your systema unit in most respects(star wars reference)

read the entire compatability thread for pix and such, particularly my post.

KWA M4 are using a two piece design similar to Marui.  I haven't found any direct replacement hopup unit.  however it doesnt stops you if you MUST use a 1 piece design like a Systema, you just have cut out all the metal that's inside the lower reciever so a one piece will fit in.  It's entirely possible.  Golgo13 have done it.  

On the other hand, I've found the stock hopup unit is just as good.  I like ABS hopup unit as it's give more torrence when mashing with the nozzle.  Provide a better seal than metal.  But that's just me.
