I want to thank you for all your help, Vanevery. I had the opportunity to somewhat range test my SR10 today. Even without the full cylinder and other mods, and despite increasing winds through the valley (about 12 mph), I was able to easily hit a man sized target at approximately 270 feet.

Your gun should be eating up 200' for breakfast.

Given your description, I believe it does not have anything to do with the Gearbox or Air Nozzle.
The fps may seem low, but for .32's that is actually about right.
10 different Chronographs can produce 10 different readings as well, so keep that in mind.
It also matters at what setting the Hop-up Unit was set when chronoing the gun.
I believe you need to focus your attention on the Hop-un Unit and Bucking.

Install:
If the Bucking was not installed correctly, the gun will not shoot correctly.
The Lonex 70 Degree Bucking gives a lot of people issues regarding the install process specifically in their KWA Hop-up Units.
This due to the Bucking's thickness and the tight tolerance of the Hop-up Unit.

...

Mr. V.
As usual thank you very much for such a detailed response.

I did the uninstall - reinstall of the Lonex 70 bucking according to your procedure. I inspected the bucking which looked fine. It was easier this time, the back and forth movement of the inner barrel helps a lot.

The results at the range are very similar to my first try, depending on the hop-up setup:
1. the BBs curve down before reaching 200 feet: 0 hit.
2. the BBs curve up then down to reach 200 feet: 50% hit, but this setup forces me to aim fairly low to hit at 120 feet .
3. the BBs curve up (typical of too much hop-up): 0 hit.

As a reminder, my current setup for my KWA SR10 is:
1. Quality heavy ammo: Elite Force MILSIM Max Bio 0.32g
2. Hop-up Unit: standard KWA; Bucking:   Lonex 70 Degree.
3. 455mm Inner Barrel: MadBull 455mm/6.03tbb.
4. Full / Type-O Cylinder: VFC cylinder
5. Spring: Stock M120

PS: I mentioned earlier 295fps, with hop-up setup to the minimum I am at 315fps.

Hello Pyro,
Quite impressive indeed.
Do you mind going over your current setup in details?

No problem, Philippe. I have a KWA SR10, stock hop up unit with a Maple Leaf 70 bucking and RTX flat hop nub. Stock 0.5 cylinder, M120 long spring, and Madbull 6.03mm 455mm. Ammo is Elite Force .32g MILSIM Max. It took a little bit of fiddling with the hop up, seeing as how I started with .30g, but after I got it set it was great. I didn't mention before, but the winds were about 12 mph or so, so I was impressed with my results.

Troubleshoot:
- My guess is you are using the C-clip?
Get rid of it.
Use added Teflon Tape or muliple Brass rings, or both.

- Possibly installing without taking the Hop-up apart?
This can cause the Nub to not seat correctly.

- Ammo:
You could try a different brand and weight of ammo.
All brands make a bad batch of ammo from time to time.
I don't think that is it, but it could be.

- Shine a bright flash light on the Bucking Mound.
I once had a Lonex 70 Degree Bucking Mound tear for no explicable reason.

- Make sure the Bucking Mound is raising and lowering properly and that it is centered in the Barrel window.

- Try a Lonex 50 Degree Bucking and see what happens.

I just received my SR10 yesterday so I am ordering all the parts Vanevery has already tested and had good results with.

I also want to say Thank you to Mr. V for all your hard work collecting data and field testing.

How do you get the barrel correctly in the hop up with it aligned with out the c-clip?

Has anyone tried this new miracle barrel? While ordering my parts for my DMR yesterday I came across it on airsoft gi, also found some YouTube videos about it. It looks promising. I ordered one to test it out. I will report back after I get it and test it. The big con to it is the price.

Yeah, I've seen it but I don't like the price and I'd rather just get a prommy or madbull barrel with r hop.

I fired an RM4 with one installed along with a maple leaf bucking and tensioner.  The system performed well but it was one mag with nothing as a comparison and no way to tell what was driving the performance.  I would like to hear about your results though.

Hey van, im wondering if you've ever used a wide bore barrel. Im thinking of trying it but am not sure of the results since it's a fairly new item in the airsoft industry.

1. is it better than r hop?
2. can you r hop a wide bore barrel for better results?(more hop)
3. is it better than a tbb?

What would be better.
1. Kwa .3g bbs w/ Prometheus eg 6.03.
2. Kwa .3g bbs w/ Prometheus wide bore 6.20.
3. Kwa .3g bbs w/ Prometheus 6.01.

Which barrel would have the best hop affect while still flying straight. My gun shoots around 430 with .2g bbs.

Hey everyone. V, you are an amazing person helping everyone out! Just wonderful! I'm totally new to upgrades so excuse me haha.
I have a cqr mod 1 that I would like to get up to 400 fps or near that. I'm planning on getting an angel customs 0.5 cylinder, 455mm 6.03 tbb, and a g&g green 70 degree bucking. What type of performance/ range should I be expecting after these upgrades?  Thanks everyone, I appreciate any responses!

I've been doing some tests in my own gun as far as various hop up combinations.

KWA sr10 with merf 3.2 mosfet. My gun is set to safe/3 round burst/auto using a 9.6 1600 mah battery. Bbs used are G&G .3s and valken .3s. They both have performed equally among all my guns.
Over the last few months I've been playing around with various hop up and flat hop bucking/nub combinations.

Drop in bucking
- 2gx
- lonex 70

Flat hop:
- kwa 2gx
- lonex 70
- madbull red

Rhop: (only used Zkit for patch)
- lonex 70
- kwa 2gx

For nubs I have used
- standard nub
- standard nub with wire and other various inserts to strengthen the nub
- raptors RTX hop up nub
- madbull shark/conclave nub
- homemade nubs with pink erasers and with hard pencil erasers
- prommy hopup tensioner bridge
- prommy buffer rubber

My best results were with rhop using KWA bucking and prommy buffer rubber, I personally liked the kwa bucking because of how easy it was to install and adjust anything. Unlike the lonex 70 which would take quite abit more work to get seated into the hopup correctly. I'm able to hit a man sized target on 3 round burst at 250 feet. One of the three bbs will hit and often 2 may hit. The only thing I have noticed is that while the bbs have an incredible range, they do have quite a spread, up to a 4' square on the worst of days but still effective enough to be able to engage targets at that distance.
A very close and similar performing set up was using the raptors nub. It did not need quite as much sanding as the prommy nub did, making this one an easier install.
Previous to that my 3rd best performer was using a lonex 70 degree bucking and flat hop using a raptors nub.

I could never seem to get a strait enough cut for the erasers in which case they were always less consistent and had the weakest ranges.

I also have a KWA CQR mod 2 that i'm beginning to test on. I've tried flat hop 2gx with prommy tensioner bridge and a strait lonex 70 degree. I'm going to give it a r hop and see how it performs. I havn't been quite pleased with the success of the mod 2. The bb's never seem to get quite enough hop. Have used .25s, .28s, .3s. Shots die out after 100 feet.

My next job i'll be working on is trying to make my sr10 more consistent. I'll be reprogramming my mosfet into semi/auto and seeing if that causes an effect. Otherwise I'll be tie the bucking with floss and wrap in teflon tape.
