Well, I have been the owner of a KG36c for quite some time and something I have noticed is when I am using KSC Perfect .25's my bb's will have a curve in their flight path, with the hop-up completly shut off. When the dial is all the way down and there should be no hop, the bb will make an arc if the aeg is fired at a straight level. Now it's not a problem but something unusual and would like to know if anyone else has had this occur. Could it be the bb's are too slick? I also shot G&G Bio .25's and have needed the hop up about 3/8 to 1/2 the way up to make a steady flight path.

If it really bothers, you can you can swap the barrel and bucking.  It's very easy to do.  Here is a great guide.  If you don't want to upgrade anything, you can always try reinstalling the bucking to make sure it is perfectly aligned.  http://www.airsoftfo...ssi-t43274.html  

It is VERY easy to do.  The G36 hop up design is pretty much fool proof.  Just read the instructions carefully.

I have a madbull silicone bucking and a "fishbone" style spacer and I used to have to crank up the hop up almost all the way to get a good hop with .25s.  Now, I barely have it above zero and it has a perfect hop.  (it also has much greater range flying straight. I used to have to add a ton of hop to get range so the bbs would soar up)

If your warranty is expired, I suggest you upgrade the barrel and bucking.  Even just a bucking made a huge difference for my E1 G36C.  (I assume KWA buckings are better, so you may not see a huge performance increase)

Hope this helps.
