This is a FYI and I also want to see if other KWA G36C owners have the same problem.  I recently was doing a barrel swap on my G36.  I accidentally broke the hop up when I was removing the barrel assembly.  The hop up snapped at the attachment point.  So, I went to my local airsoft store to buy a new hop up, but only CA hop up is available.  I reinstalled it and the bb does not have enough power/FPS from the barrel.  I even reinstalled the broken KWA hop up to test shoot and it had more power.  With the CA hop up, the bb can't even puncture a cardboard box at point blank range.  The broken hop up shot like before, bb went through the box entirely.  

So, I need to buy the OEM KWA hop up.  But the KWA store is out of stock.  Also, be careful with the frame locking pin.  Do not tighten the screw on the the other side too much, my snapped off when I was tightening it.  And I wasn't even doing it hard.

When you are re installing your hop up chamber be sure to push it forward so that you don't break it again as a heads up  :)
