First of all, the parts I was missing in my other topic got put in by myself, and that problem is fixed perfectly. :)

But I noticed another thing now. I believe this was my fault though.
When I adjust the hop up, the nub actually rotates slightly in the direction I adjust it, which makes the bb go off to the side a lot if I turn the hop-up up. When turned off, the nub is rotated to about 1 o'clock if you were to compare it that way. Fully on the nub is about 10 o'clock. I think this happens because I might have tried cleaning the inner barrel when the hop-up was still on.

My question to the KWA techs, or anyone who knows what to do, is how would I go about taking apart the hop-up, and making sure everything is lined up properly?

during installation, did you take the whole hopup unit apart?

I don't know how. I took off the part that keeps the inner barrel aligned straight, because it is the only piece with a visible screw to take out.

that part may be misaligned.  Your hopup should not be spinning around if this part is doing it's job correctly.

I fixed it. The screw wasn't tight enough, so the barrel still had a little bit of room to wobble around.

Case closed! :)

When you say tighten the screw is it the one connecting the hop up to the inner barrel?

I mean the only screw that you can see with the hop-up still attached. It holds the piece that keeps the inner barrel from rotating.
