My N2S USPc is not holding a round in the chamber. I am fanatic about cleaning it and making sure that everything is lubed properly (this might be the problem, too much lube). I have tried adjusting my hop-up but it does not appear to change anything. Any troubleshooting advice anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.

Heya welcome to the forum. When you lube your gun, do you lubricate the hop up chamber as well? This is something you shouldn't do.

Thanks for the welcome!

Yes. I inadvertently got some overspray all over the hopup chamber. How can I fix this situation? I was thinking of blowing it off with compressed air but I feel like that’s a bad idea.

Should I take out the inner barrel and try to dry it out somehow?
Should I change the way that I maintain my gun?
What parts should I lube?

Try not to use spray silicon in your KWAs. We always recommend pure silicon oil like the one that comes with your gun in the little bottle. And also, never lubricate your hop up bucking. (that rubber piece in the barrel) that will make it swell and cause problems like the one you are facing. You are going to need a new bucking. You can order them at the pro shop: store.kwausa.com.

Welcome to the forums!!

Yeah. Don't get oil or any type of lubricant especially aerosol silicon oil near parts of the hop up or anywhere that the BB travels. This includes the barrel, hop up, BB track, etc. Lubricate the mechanics lightly, don't over do it.

Out of curiousity, why does he need a new bucking? I've had oil on mine before and simply washed and dried it. It has been fine ever since, thousands of shots later.

Now that we all know that I messed up. How can I fix my screw-up? Take it apart and clean off as much spray lube that I can? Replace the hop up bucking, and then I should be good right? And I will NEVER EVER USE spray lube EVER.

I will try to just take out the bucking clean it an see if that works first. (thanks jpip)

When cleaning your hop up, place it in warm soapy water for a few minutes then dry it off completely.

Just use some warm soapy (mild dish soap) water. soak, maybe gently rub, let it air dry. Clean your barrel with a wet cloth (just water), then a dry one. Make sure you get the nub back in place. Pretty easy procedure, just take your time and be gentle with the bucking. Don't ever use oil in your barrel or bucking. Will only give you troubles. you'll be fine. If all else fails, just get a new one. doubt you'll have to though.

And spray silicone should not be used on your airsoft guns whether it's electric or GBB.  It has distillates and it's not 100% silicone oil in many cases.

Good to hear coffee.

Sometimes the simplest solution is the best one. :thumbsup:
