Gun shoots fairly decent up to about 50 feet, then the majority of the bb's randomly go off of their path. North, east, south, west, and everything in between.

Also, it really shoots to the left most of the time. Even when it's shooting consistently at 50' indoors at 70 degrees. What is the problem here. I've cleaned it, shot several hundred through it, so it doesn't have any lube on the hop-up rubber. I've cleaned the barrel a few times(hop turned off). How far down is the rubber piece supposed to come down. It must be working because if I twist it just a bit too much they fly straight up after 50 feet or so, so that's definitely working.

The little rubber piece has white on it, so I can definitely tell bb's have been rubbing it. Are there any barrels, hop-ups, or assemblies available in the pro-shop? I don't see anything.

I just don't know what to do to get it more accurate. I know it should be better than this. I'm using ksc .25's. I even tried the heavier green madbulls. I think they are 34 or something. Same thing...straight to about fifty feet then wild.

On a positive note, I got nearly 200 shots off of one filled mag. Indoors 70 degrees.

Thanks,
jpip

i cleaned it according to the instructions in the video, which was with a q-tip and a small dab of silicon oil. This was without disassembly of the hop up. Just gently stuck the q-tip in there and swabbed around. Then I gently did it with a dry q-tip.  It shot the same way before cleaning it, so I know I didn't damage or manipulate anything. I'm very slow and cautious with this.

I'm using king arms gg.

Should I take the bucking off completely and clean it? If so, how to do it?

Thank you.

I do not really agree with that video KWA has out about swabbing the bucking with silicone.  I think that it causes problems and I really don't see the point of that since you are going to get oil on it regardless just from shooting.

I am going to work on the hop-up disassembly for you but it will take a bit of time due to my schedule but if anyone else has the time they can post up some pics.

Well I certainly appreciate that, but only at your own convenience. Even if I'm at 30 feet and aiming dead at the center it will still shoot to the left a couple inches. What could be out of alignment for that to happen. I wouldn't think a bucking, or even the hopup altogether would cause that at such a short range. If I could get it to shoot straight thyis pistol would be very accurate at 50 foot or less, but like I said, past that and the bb's go stupid. I know this pistol should do better at much farther distances. Thanks again.

OK, I disassemled the hop-up very easily. I cleaned the bucking and the barrel again. It actually looks like there is a large scratch inside the barrel. It definitely wasn't from me.

Anyway, I reassembled it and nothing changed, still shot to the left. I called the company I ordered it from and got an RMA. I'm just going to exchange it for another one. Hopefully this new one will be the way it was designed. Like I said, it was accurate at short distances, but not straight ahead. Past 50' and it was very inconsistent.

That scratch inside the barrel can definitely affect accuracy.

Will keep you updated. Again, thanks for being there with responses to my questions. If I could only find somebody to answer questions about women.....my wife to be specific. Kinda like a firearm, if I don't maintain her then she won't shoot straight :clap:
