So i bought the KWA AKG and right out of the Box with .30 KWA BB's it was performing phenomenally well. I was Getting around 180 feet range at 2 clicks from Max hop. One Click more and it would suddenly over hop bb's into the sky.
Anyway, it worked really well for around one or two outings. That would be 12 mags run through it, or maybe a little more. And now it can only manage 120 feet at full hop with the same weight BB's and same testing area ( my backyard ).
Now I have been using only CLP ( frog lube) for Lubing purposes and Valken Green gas. I suspected the Hopup bucking might be to blame, Maybe swollen now? I am out of warranty and i am seriously beginning to think i should stop using green gas and just use dry propane and lube the O-rings after each session of gaming ( Atleast the hop will remain dry at the cost or maybe getting occasional leaking mags)
Could someone be kind enough to make a video of how to get into the hopup unit and take it apart. Any suggestions/advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.

I'd no more use CLP on my airsoft guns than I wouild use silicone oil on my M4 Carbine or other firearms.
I've no idea what CLP will do to the bucking.

I doubt CLP is the culprit here, since i use it for all my airsoft and real steel guns, plus i don't really see a way how CLP could have found its way into the bucking and caused it to swell. I Lube the Metal Moving parts with CLP, a drop of murder oil on the orings and the only thing i think might be responsible for the "suspected" bucking swelling and the reduced performance is probabaly the Silicone oil coming from the Green gas in the mags. That is most likely to find its way into the bucking.
I have not actually tried to open things up to go in an check what might have happened, since it still reached 120ish feet. I think ill have to go in if the performance keeps falling.
Any tips or preferably a breakdown video would be much appreciated.

I follow the TMs and manufacturer's recommendations which means CLP almost exclusively for my firearms. And silicone oil in my airsoft guns. (And Honda manual transmission fluid (MTF) in my S2000's tranny.) I use the term CLP (capitalized) to refer to the military CLP performance spec. If Frog Lube meets military standards I'm unaware of it. But would be happy to learn if it does. But silicone oil remains the specified lubricant. And green gas the specified propellant.
