I got the M9 Ptp at Christmas and after several games i have noticed the bb's curve BAD at around 40 feet no matter how i adjust the hop up (.25 gram bbs). The footage is laser measured, the bb's curve in random directions and i mean like from straight line to a 90 degrees straight up, or 90 degrees left or right. I would compare it too a 450 fps gun shooting .12 gram bb's, except the hop up helps a little bit.

Sorry to hear about your hop-up troubles.  Have you used any silicone in the barrel or around the hop-up bucking?  If so, what type?

The only silicone ive used is the silicone included in the clear bottle i put it all around the slide anywhere the slide touches after every use, but never actually in the barrel. I noticed that sometimes when i run out of gas in the magazine that the bb's that come out of the mag are dirty could the mag be causing the bb's to get greasy/ dirty and making them less accurate?

Did you adjust the hop up all the way clockwise to turn it off?

I would recommend clean the bucking with a q-tip. The gas I doubt would be the main culprit of your bucking problems. If it was anything, have you cleaned where the bb's are stacked, with a q-tip? That place is always extremely greasy and dirty...

i havent ever cleaned the place where the bb's are stacked, but i clean the barrel after every use, and the hop up is all the way clockwise, but that5 should be most hop right?
If i turn it counter clockwise the bb's fly up like crazy.

You have to clean inner barrels with hop turned off all the way.  It can get either damaged or soaked with contaminants from the cleaning rod and inner barrel.

I clean it with the hop up off, I tested the gun after cleaning the mag where the bb's go in and it didnt help in still EXTREMELY innacurate. I am comfortable taking the gun apart if theres anything i can do without sending it off.
