MP-7 Hop-Up Problem
Posted 11 September 2012 - 11:08 AM
When firing, BBs curve up with no hop-up (adjusted using tool) at all. The hop-up does function as it casues even more of a rise in the flight path when I increase hop. The other problem I am having is that due to low/no hop-up the BB's tend to roll out of the barrel.
I have completely dissasembled the airsoft gun (including hop-up) to ensure that there isn't excessive buildup of oils but the problem still remains. I have also removed the bolt and looked down the barrel on the hop-up side and adjusted the hop-up to verify that it is in fact increasing and decreasing. With no hop-up there is not any part of the bucking protruding in the barrel, yet I am still having this problem.
I am using KWA Perfect .25g BBs. Should I try a heavier weight? The MP-7 is all stock right now.
Thanks for the help.

Anyways, you can buy a new hop up bucking plus ball bearing off the KWA pro shop: store.kwausa.com.
If you need a tutorial on how to replace the parts, see the video in one of the posts at the top of the MP7 sub forum for a disassembly/reassembly video.
Good luck getting that gun fixed!!

I'm currently trying to let the bucking soak in soap and water.
Regarding the ball bearing I actually called KWA and they stated that there isn't a ball bearing in the hop-up in the MP7. Any ideas?

If what you're trying to say is that the hop up bucking they sell does not include the ball, then you will need to buy the one with the ball, and also, they may have said the reason why you are experiencing this problem is because you don't have the ball inside your hop up of your MP7, which is the reason why your bbs are curving up when you shoot.

Again regarding the ball bearing, I'll try purchasing the part you linked and try it. There may have been some miscommunication but the KWA rep I spoke with was sure there isn't a ball bearing in the MP7.
Opening your own gun and finding one though doesn't lie!
