Full Version: Explanation Of Baxs Hopup System?

when I bought my cybergun akm back in the day it said it had this hopup system. same goes for the aks I bough thats on its merry way.

just out of curiousity id like to learn more about it since most websites promote it as being better than fixed hopup.

any clue as to how this system came about and how it operates? diagrams would be helpful too. ive been all over the web and found little info on the subject other than sales gimics. and id like to know more about it because my spring ak-47s (which I will use as a training rifle for new players instead of my aeg) has the baxs system. and I figure the more I know about my rifle the better a shooter I am.
thanks

Okay so "hop-up" is when in the gun, backspin is put on the BB in order to achieve a further and more accurate shot. When to much backspin is applied the BB will travel out of the gun and will keep going an an upward angle. When too little backspin is applied the BB will travel out of the gun and keep going on at downward slope.

and thats pretty much all I know about it, I looked and couldn't find a diagram, sorry.

BAXS is just cybergun's name for a hopup system a-rolleyes.gif , it can refer to adjustable or non adjustable hopup.

no I understand how hopup works, im not new to the sport, I just hate using aegs to plink. and I certainly wont hand my rk104 to a kid I never met to teach him the sport. I was simply curious about what the difference is between bax hopup and normal hopup. apparently there is none. a-crazy.gif

Yep, if I remeber right my P230 box said it had that BAXS system, and a far as I can tell by looking through the gun, (It's clear) it's just a normal hop-up. It really likes sending BBs to the right though, I have to hold the gun at an angle to have a chance at hitting something.

I realize this is a little old but the BAXS (ballistic accuracy extreme system) is different then the standard hop-up. Supposedly (emphasis on supposedly) it allows both vertical AND horizontal adjustment (which is why your gun shoots to the right, adjust it!) by using a upside-down "v" shaped hop-up thingy.

Wow... Then why doesn't my shotgun have it then?

No, that's not true. It's just a super name Cybergun made up. Remember, they rebrand guns. I don't think they have enough time to magically take apart every gun and put a "Ballistic Accuracy Extreme System" in their guns...

My DPMS Ultra Grade M16's Box said BAX on it, and it has (or had) fixed hop-up.

Yep, I can adjust it to the right or left by sticking a dental pick down the barrel and pushing on it in the direction I want, and I can vertically adjust it by taking apart the gun, and either stick something above the bucking for more hop-up, or sand off some of the bucking for less hop.

Actually, that's how I actually did fix the hop-up sending the BBs off to the right, and how I'm planning on making the gun put more of a spin on the BB. (Assuming I can figure out how to take it apart enough to get to the hop-up.)
