Maple Leaf Flat Hop nub
Finally some more writing on the wall. I had some problems when it came to my sniper after installing the Maple Leaf Monster rubber. I wasn’t getting the lift i wanted. I was just at the end of the hop up of the TM L96 AWS dial and that wouldn’t cut it. So i got a Maple leaf flat hop nub. It worked somewhat better, but when BB’s are rolling through the barrel still at 0 hop effect it’s still a problem.
So i checked up online on what people had been doing and i came across this: http://www.airsoftsniperforum.com/44-others/2398-tm-l96aws-detailed-hop-up-spacer-fix.html
There the basics of what needs to be done is to get something between the arm and the plastic piece holding the nub. And that something needed to be flat enough to give good pressure down to not have a curve in the air. So i took an old nub that had really thin walls and cut it in half. It fit perfectly, and in my video about this i show wire insulation, but as i checked after making the video the old nub could have might as well come from that wire.
Had a chance to test it after the release of the video and i had a left curve. But after getting home i noticed that i hadn’t taken the right procedure of checking the alignment of the barrel vs hop chamber. Rotated the inner barrel just a bit and double checked that the nub came down dead center and no angle and put it back. Went out for a fast test shooting before it got dark. Got of a couple and i saw how straight they went and i can’t wait of using it in a game.
Check out the video where I show you the difference of the original and the flat nub.
