I recently lost my hop up nub and was looking at other hop up nubs. I came across the SCS Hop up nub and was wondering if or what kind of hop up bucking I would need to use

I find KWAs bucking fit & work the best. SCS nub is concave i tried that in the past & found a regular nub worked better, maybe due to the "V notch?" in KWAs bucking.

I do notice that KWAs nub is a little long, or the hop up unit is not that wide, either way it gets hung up, i remove around the thickness of an X -Acto blade on the nub and it works great.

FWIW, i mix up nubs all the time, you can find one a lot less then a $12 SRC nub.

Maybe others have experience with the SCS & chime in.

KWA buckings require a straight or flat nub due to the design of the bucking.  The SCS nub is not recommended.

Concave nubs are more for standard buckings with a single mound type contact point.  The KWA bucking is more of a "V" style bucking therefore a concave nub would negate performance.
