Hey I have the M9 Tactical PTP "New Structure Full" Green box?

I just replaced my old mag thinking there was a problem with that, but the outcome was still the same. I can't go through a whole mag without running out of green gas. I'm thinking there's a leaking problem, but I'm not sure. There is also an issue with the hop up. No matter how i position it the bb's just go straight down.

Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

A couple things to consider.

1. What's the ambient temperature when you use your gun?  Gas doesn't expand well in cold temperature.  

2. The type of Gas you are using also affect performance.  Some brand seems less pressure than other and will loose power just about half empty.

K the new gas can did it. So it's not leaking, and i bought a new mag for nothing.

So it's probably just the hop up now. I live near City of Industry, CA. It's actually a cold day today- just under 60F. Are there replacement hopups available? Or are there any other suggestions? It's not that windy today but it's cold and I also lube the gun often.

Wow, I didn't know that a new can of gas would work?

Yea. A can of green gas can feel like it has more propellant in it than it actually does. So, when you go to fill the mag, you actually under fill it. Since you are near KWA, why don't you stop by and let them diagnose the rest of the issues. It could be the gun is just over lubed. Or it could be more. :gun:
