New Hopup causing feeding issues

Recommended Posts

I have a new Avalon Calibur that I took to a tech and installed the new Umbrella X PDI kit 6.05 mm R-Hop Inner Barrel and Umbrella Armory X Max model hopup and Prometheus purple bucking. The gun shoots great when the mag is have empty. If I try shooting a full mag the bb's will just fall out or go about a foot. I took it back to the tech and was told that it has to be broken in. I ran maybe a 1000 bb's thru and still the same thing. Then I took it to another tech and was told that hopup was not made to shoot semi auto and would work best on full auto. We shoot it full auto and it seemed to work. I just wanted to get some opinions before I buy a different hopup unit. I did try various mags and same problem with all of them. Has anybody else had this problem? I have this problem listed some where else and was told that I have to get a stronger tappet spring(could be mid cap syndrome). I want to give it a try but my son thinks if it was the tappet spring that the gun won't shoot right even after the mag is half empty.

As you may have found out...your Tech number 1 is not so good.   Stop using him.

Fact number two.  No aftermarket part is a guaranteed drop in "upgrade".  Many is a lateral, no difference.  Many may not work well together...a downgrade.

I would point the issue that the bb is having an issue getting past the hop-up packing (bucking is not a real term and its a made up word from a translation error from 20 years ago.)

Or your new hop-up unit may not be seated correctly.

With that...welcome to "real" Airsoft troubleshooting, where your AEG is a "system" and one part may not work well with others due to there now being no "standard" for aftermarket parts.
