Based on each of your experiences (with stock LM4 internals) what is the best weight of bb to be used? The official response from KWA is .25g but I would like to hear some user opinions.


P.S. If there is already a thread for this please direct me to it.

Depends on your hop up.. I've been using .28s to good affect. My .23s were way to light though.

I had overhop with .25's.  .30's seem to dip just a tad.  .28's or .30's ought to give you a good response.  Clean your barrel and get all the grease off your bucking.  My first 100 rds were wild even after a thorough cleaning.  Trajectory leveled out after that, but don't expect precision hop.

I use .3 KSC's and my gun has been completely accurate with them ever since it came out of the box. Actually, its kind of a miracle, my red dot sight was perfectly aligned, perfect hop up, perfect aim and all out of the box.

I started out using .30g and could still make them hop way up if I wanted to, but for some reason now only .25g work with the hop all the way up. Kinda disappointing.

Exactly why I modded mine to use the ball bearing design...that metal tab in the new hop up gets weak and bends after extended use..

because the hop actuator is soft as pop can.
I'm moving back to ball bearing design.... A++ Bucking, Falcon 6.02mm tightbore, Guarder steel hopup rear chamber.
