I am having trouble finding out how to adjust the hop up, the bbs don't even shoot out they just get stuck by the rubber hop up and I have to tilt the barrel down just so the bbs fall out.

Also I don't have time to get the hop up tool so please tell me how to adjust it without the tool

Welcome to the forums!! It looks to me that I don't think you are using the KWA M11A1 NS2 model... I don't see the hop-up grooves anywhere, and never seen that loading ramp in my life!! Perhaps you have an older generation of the gun? When did you get it?
Perhaps a mod could help you better...sorry.

Alright... this is a start... could you provide the link to the page he sold it? I just want to see if there's any other photos... Can you provide some other photos of the gun so I can make sure we are dealing with a real KWA gun?

After searching Google a little bit, I think it is safe to say you bought a KWA M11A1 NS1 model. I don't think KWA provided a tool to adjust your hop up, and after watching a few dated youtube videos, the hop up can be easily adjusted with your finger. Simply put your finger on the loading ramp... (I think, not entirely sure) and twist right for more hop up, and left for less hop up...

Hope this information helps...

Edit: The videos I watched were the Mac11 NS1 Maintenance series of vids by aderonn. Links:

Oo!! Those pictures say it all... sorry to tell you, but you have a TSD Mac 11; very similar to the HFC Mac 11... I can tell by the trades on the right side of the gun in the back... And also with the magazine... you definitely don't have a KWA... sorry to say it, but the guy scammed you. Try to get your money back if you can. (that's probably the reason why the guy is ignoring you) And no problem for the help, it's what we do on the KWA forum ;)

So, I looked up how to adjust your hop up on the TSD... try this page: (besides the KSC using the hop up tool for the KSC version...the page tells you both), you will need some sort of allen key to adjust the hop up from the top...

And here is the link to a TSD M11 just for proof you own a TSD:

Good luck with your gun man...
