i just got my m4-s, and i havent changed anything. ive put about 1000 rounds through it so far. i cleaned the barrel and oiled the gun as i was instructed. i have the hop up turned all the way up, but it still seems to be dropping prematurely. if i turn it all the way down, then it drops to the ground after 50 ft. admittedly, i dont know much about airsoft guns, cause this is my first one. i honestly didnt think anything was wrong with it until my brother (who plays all the time) said that i might need a new bucking. this sound plausible? thanks for your responses

Just to be safe, you may want to send it in, before the warrenty is over.

I had the same problem, well sorta. I had lost the hop up nub, and I wasn't getting any hop. I found it replaced it and was good to go. If your warranty period isn't over send her in. But if so order a new bucking, and nub. before you do that you should chrono it to make sure your still good compression.

Before you do all that, shoot a couple hundred rounds and make sure you don't have excess silicone inside the barrel.  The only way you could lose the hop up nub is if you took the hop up apart.  

I bet you just have too much silicone in the barrel/bucking

He already shot 1K through the gun, 500 should take all the silicone out of the barrel/bucking and start to give you more consistant shots. I would send it in after you get it chrono'd.

I wasn't sure if he cleaned the barrel before and then shot and vice versa.

Could be the hop-up nub that's missing as someone has already mentioned.  Take the hop-up/barrel out and turn the wheel to give it more hop-up and see if you see it pushing down.
