Hello,

I recently bought an A&K Magpul Masada from the AirsoftStation retail store (I live in MN). I took the gun out to the field yesterday and, as a stock gun, it is the best I have ever played with. Granted, this has been my most expensive gun, but still. I was blown away at how far I was hitting people.

Anyways, I noticed the BB's have a great range, but the hop-up was not incredibly consistent. I'm pretty sure this is due to the gun coming with the plastic stock hop-up unit. The guy at the store I bought it from suggested that I upgrade that right off the bat, which I am looking to do right now. In the future I'll most likely put a new barrel in there, and maybe upgrade various internals, but for now the gun works fine.

I currently have found two aluminum hop-up units on Evike. One is "CNC", the other is "Wii Tech CNC". The simply "CNC" one has four reviews saying that it is great. Yet the "Wii Tech" has none. There is a $40 difference between the prices, and I'm not sure if that extra money is actually worth it. Also, I have to replace the stock. On the field we were playing a hostage gamemode, and I had to bandage the hostage. I put my gun down for a few seconds, and in the chaos someone kicked it and broke the stock... So having to buy a $30 stock and a $65 hop-up unit is kinda harsh on me, since I am on a tight budget.

In the end, my main question is: Is the extra ~$40 worth it? If it really is, then I can make the budget work. If not, let me know. The guy at the store said I should drop around $60 for the new hop-up, I just want another opinion on it.

What also makes this harder is that I am not entirely sure what parts fit my Masada. I would like some tac. rails, but I can't seem to find any Masada-specific handrail kits. I am also not sure what barrels will fit my gun, or if specific ones work better/worse for Masadas. Same goes for suppressors. I'm not confident enough to buy parts based on my own knowledge yet, since the various brands, models and variants make it very hard for me to understand what will work and what will not. It seems like there are hardly any parts for Masadas specifically, but can I use other AR modification kits, such as ones for ACRs?

Thanks so much for the help,
Caleb

A plastic hop-up has no major bearing on your inconsistency.

 

The oil and dirt in the barrel and the bb type you use is a larger factor in inconsistency.

 

The units on Evike are worthless if they are not complete units. Post a link for the items you found.

 

Also finding spare parts will be difficult. That stock breaks in many locations easier than expected. Good luck in sourcing a stock.

 

As for Rails...you picked a platform that is difficult to accessorize. There is very little you can do for rails. You can swap of the front end for anything that appeals to you.
