Hi,

I purchased a G&G Green hop up bucking (with nub and brass ring) kit. I installed the bucking, and I noticed that the Bucking nub (little black round rubber) was much thicker than the stock KWA nub. I used it in the installation, thinking that this is the way it should be. The hop is is extremley sensetive now. I have to keep the hop up very close to the lowest position. The tiniest push with a fingernail changes the hop up function drastically. For giggles, I tried it on the lowest and highest setting. Both fired fine. I do not believe the bucking itself was installed incorrectly, but I could be wrong.

My question is, should I be using the green bucking with the stock (smaller) KWA nub? The G&G nub was noticably larger, and the KWA was smaller (but perfectly rounded, not worn out). The nub has no more than 5-6000 rounds fired through it.

Thanks!

Install the KWA nub and report back.  Hopefully it will give you a bit less sensitivity with hop.

Does it shoot straight and flat?

The G&G Green bucking is in fact very sensitive.
It responds to micro adjustments of the Hop-up dial.
In every gun I use it in, no matter what gearbox set up, I have the Hop-up completely turned off to 40 yards(120').
This allows for perfectly straight shots and laser type accuracy at this distance.
Past 40 yards, micro adjustment become neccessary.

I highly suggest using .30 bbs with this bucking.
It really is needed until the bucking mound wears down a bit.
I always use the Nub that comes with the bucking.
If you find that the stock Nub is better suited, then you should go with that.

This gun has ALWAYS shot to the right. Especially with the G2X bucking. The barrel that came with the gun was not perfectly cut at the bucking window, but I tried to file it down and it helped allot. I have to have the iron sight moved all the way to the left to even out it firing to the right. Really weird but I can live with it. I may get a new barrel down the road, but id like to get a higher end one (promethius? or the one from the KWA pro shop), and I do not have the funds ATM.

With the new bucking and KSC .25g BBs there seems to be fliers to both the left and right, but most of them are straight from the rought 30-40 yards. Maby I will take a video soon to demostrate.

Thanks for the info. I am happy with the new bucking! I will run through the 9K .25g KSC BBs I have then get some .30g. Ill let you know how the stock nub goes as well.

I use the G&G green bucking in my RIS with my own nub. I prefer it over the G2X bucking.
