I am wanting more range on my CQR MOD 1. I'm getting a new barrel and heavier bb's. The next thing was a hop up unit. I'm not sure if there is a specific one I need to get or if it will benifit me so much that it is worth getting.

    Thanks

The KWA Hop-up unit is excellent. I do not believe you will get better performance in your KWA gun with an after-market Hop-up unit. My suggestion would be to upgrade the bucking or do a Flat-hop or R-hop. The Mod1 also has the CQB Cylinder, so changing to a Type1 Cylinder will greatly help for field use vs CQB in terms of distance. The added air volume will lift heavier bb's such as .30's much better as well.

Ditto. The hop-up unit should be left stock and the other mods Van outlined should help.  Personally, I would get a KN Head TBB and change the cylinder.  In fact, start with the cylinder and reevaluate the gun's performance.  I've used a lot of inner barrels and have yet to find one I like better than the KN Head though.  They are not cheap but at long ranges they are very, very good.

I'm using .23 gram bb's trying to get some .25's the shop was out of them at ther time so I got .23's. Then I was going to get the KWA 395mm tightbore, then maybe a new cylinder and possibly a new spring.

    Thanks for the advice.

The new TBB and cylinder will bring you close to 390FPS with .2's.  Unless you need to go higher, I would hold off on changing the spring.  I would also use the opportunity to replace the piston o-ring with a nicely stretched Danco #14.

About any aftermarket cylinder will work as long as they are not a bore up size.  But why not use a KWA original type-0.5 cylinder for a peace of mind.
