Hello all,

Was doing a bit of close range firing today approx 10m, and when I have the Iron sights or red dot bang on target the bb's seem to pull right a bit from my point of aim, elevation is well within reason but they still pull end up right of the target..

The hop up is seated correctly checked that, the inner barrel is very stable, it defo isnt on my part with my aiming because I set up a make shift bench after i noticed, and the barrel itself doesnt seem to be warped!!! And it was indoors so no wind. The barrel, hop-up and chamber were just cleaned (thank you KWA for your video on "how to")

Cant figure it out at all.

Any suggestions?

Simply adjust your scope/iron sights to the right.  It appeares that you have only zeroed for elevation.

Well I found the problem, My outer barrel seems to bend to the right ever so slightly which is odd as its never been dropped. It would not be something you'd expect to find which is probably why I did not notice. So its no real wonder why the accuracy is off.

Thanks anyway.

Just how far is it bent?

Bout 2-3mm off to the right from the dead center of the upper receiver. Ill dismantle the front end and see what the story is.

Is the barrel bent, or not properly seated in the hop-up chamber and inner barrel.  To test this, remove the inner barrel and role it on a very flat surface, like a granite counter top.  If the barrel is true it will roll flat, if not it will lift where bent.  Please let us know.

If your barrel is bent you are going to need a new one.

The only thing you can really do besides getting a new barrel, is zero a mil-dot scope, or any other range estimating scope for about 125 feet and compensate.  But if you don't have one just buy a new barrel.

How did you determine that your barrel is bent?
It sounds like the bucking contact and barrel is off center a bit.

Cheers for the reply's lads, yea the inner barrel is fine did all those checks, the outer barrel was not warped thank god. I dismantled the front end pieced it back together and its right as rain now. 99.9% posiitve it was just a seating issue. phewww

Because when you look at it dead center along the receiver and barrel assembly the barrel pulls right like i said, and to make sure I was not imagining it, I got two other peoples opinions and both agreed. Like I said in my previous posts I did all the routine checks and came up blank it just did not occur to me to inspect the front end just took it as a give that it was fine I guess, not to worry its sorted now anyway.
