My site gets a lot of attention so you get all sorts of people. However, I hate the rental kids that run around with their dangerous trigger fingers pointing their AEG's at their own team's faces whilst on full auto. Someone I know got blasted in the face from 3 feet when there was a clearly stated minimal engagement for it. He had red marks all over his face and was reluctant to play due to a searing headache from this.

I also hate it when you are hiding and shoot someone who further goes and tells his team where you are. This happens a lot at my site. Another one is when people are running infront of your barrel when you are clearly about to take a shot. You usually lose the target and have to find it again.

Dead men tell no tales...that's a field rule we have. Man I hate it when that happens...

True, but when you go to respawn, you’re alive again and going to go back for revenge, might as well bring teammates. But when they die and instantly yell out your position is....

There are fundamental flaws with the game itself, got to let it go and make the most of it.

To contribute to the ramble, I hate that my aep shoots 60m/s 0.2g and very often I get into situations where I hit ‘em and they don’t feel it. Then you say you hit him, he says you didn’t.... Especially now, when it’s colder and people come with layers upon layers of cloth.

Oh yeah, once the player has gotten back to respawn, that's perfectly fine. It's when they just pull out the kill rag and point your position to the team mate on the way back to the respawn. Seriously?

Hey, speaking of cold! We may be able to hit the airsoft field early this year! We finally got above freezing this week...for how long? Not sure, but we'll take it! As for the not calling the hits, there is the universal problem. That's the reason why we disallowed ghillie suits here. A ghillie, and a sweater, and, and, and well...you could almost get hit with a .22 and not feel it.

So, out went the ghillies.

Anyhew, it's hard to be upset about too much when you can walk outside and no ice forms on the inside of your lungs. There's still a bunch of snow in the fields so you could say what's grinding our gears is wanting to get back out there after long months of just watching airsoft on YouTube.

I still hate doing rhops. This time, I don't know how or why, but I installed an rhop into my LCT ak, and it blew the bevel gear. Stripped all the teeth off the gear that interacts with the spur. I don't know. I hate it. Getting replaced with a lonex bevel.

I have never had a good experience with r-hops, does not matter if I do it or someone else. Always problems. I am sure the R-hop has nothing to do with the gear stripping, but its getting the blame anyway, as I have never opened the AK and that is the only thing I changed on it.

I said f* it and ordered a prommy with a preinstalled rhop from Umbrella Armory. If that does not show me the worth of rhop, I don't know what will.

Patience Plazma-san. No one scales the cliff on the first try. Master the r hop you will, only then a Jedi will you be...and all that jazz.

Seriously? I wish I could say that the r hop had nothing to do with the gear stripping, but mojo is a weird thing, y'know? Even as number minded as I can be, there's a spiritually enlightened element to building things...quantum if you will. I only say this because I've seen perfectly calculated machines do some ridiculous things that made no sense where the only common factor in all of them was expectation and stress.

My grandpa was an engineering type and I'm sure part Jedi. Quiet, smooth, unassuming, and he built some of the finest violins you could find. Not for profit, not for the masses, but for the love of music. Yeah, that kind of weirdo. When I took music lessons with the penguins (Catholic Nuns) as a kid I got accused of lying when they asked where I got such an instrument (it was a perfect 3/4 scale) and I told them it was my grandpa that made it. Happiness was him walking in there with another of his home builts, ripping Bach like nobody's business, and demanding an apology from the head penguin...not for their doubt of his fiddling ability but for not believing his grand kid. The guy was my frikken idol.

Anyhew, point being, he said that anything we build with our hands also demands our hearts if it's to function properly. All the science in the world is useless without imagination and wonder. He was a scientist with the Federal Forestry and yet, he could tap on a log and 'feel' the music in it. How beautiful is that?

Fast forward to right now...we obsess with numbers. Ratios, compression, formulas...I see it all the time here. Let's never forget the mojo, the sexy, the love, and that every milestone is awesome. I didn't build a Thompson to prove molecular theory, I built a Thompson because I had relatives that went to war in the 40's. I'm old enough to remember the mangled vets marching on Remembrance Day barely able to hold themselves up, but good luck knocking them over! I build WW2 guns out of respect, and memory. Not just for the gun at the end, but it keeps the thought fresh in my mind of how good we have it. That's alot of mojo right there...

So, about the Thompson...it has been an excruciating build. Definitely not cost effective. But, like the old boys, giving up was not an option. I also wouldn't settle for average, I need exceptional. Last night I range tested it and had to take it outside...I ran out of building! It shoots well over 200 feet with the hop right off. There's still minimal friction there but barely enough to slow a BB down...but because of the shape of the patch and the duration of contact, it spins like mad without barely slowing down. The rifle fires at 405 fps all day at 14 rps. I ran it until I couldn't hold on to the motor grip anymore (it got HOT)....but it wouldn't quit. Just like the old boys. We ran mag after mag after mag, and that little Tommy lifts .3's like they're packing peanuts. It just loves .4's....but they end up going a little slow. I may readjust the hop later, but for now, for a Thompson, the results are exceptional. Especially one that got pulled from the junk pile.

Did I do any math during the build? No, not really. I watched alot of documentaries on D Day, Easy Company, and our beloved Canadian PPCLI's and the Van Douze (the Royal 22nd). I kept thinking, I have to do better..good simply isn't good enough...and on and on we went. Is it accurate like my Thunderstick? Well no...apples and oranges here...it's still a little gun, but what a wallop!!! My boss and I were giggling like idiots last night when we were rattling mag after mag to the other end of the yard.

So, in closing...maybe the r hop did bugger the gear..

My farfetched guess would be bb jammed (on the r-hop, real easy to over hop), air got nowhere to go, piston stops, pre engagement happens big time, bevel was the weakest gear and...

I just do not fathom how in the fuck I got 3 lemon rhopped barrels from 3 different people. None of the barrels I have perform as they should. Not a single one will hop a bb over .28g without jamming. I have tried them in multiple different chambers, with different buckings, nubs, guns. I have spent the last 15 hours fucking with these barrels and so far nothing like what I have seen or heard.

If all these were for AEGs, I'd say check your air seal also nozzle slop. From my experience your nozzle is not placing the bb in place nor creating seal with the bucking before piston slams forward.
Or just bad R-hops. Me personally love it, mine perform as well as prommey flat blues if not better while being dirt cheap lol for the price of one bucking I can buy tubes for the patches enough for several life times.

This is exactly the problem with 'commercial' r hops I've been harping about FOREVER! They figure glue a patch into the hole, charge the big bucks and good to go! NO SIR. It is just not that simple.

In theory, the patch is simple. Glue the side edges, shape it to the barrel, and good to go, right? NOPE! The material matters, it really matters..or it'll end up stopping the BB instead of letting it pass. You can fool with the leading edge of the patch to introduce the BB into the patch with a little less agression. If the patch was trimmed incorrectly, it can act like a brake...in this case which it is. The nub also has to be custom configured in each individual case to get the patch to conform correctly once the pressure is on.

Over the last few years I've had umpteen offers to cut and install patches on a commercial level. No siree! Not a chance in hell. Only because I can't guarantee the rest of the gun will work with it and nobody is willing to spend the coin to have it setup as a complete system. It's just not a drop in part, IMO.

So, editorial aside, you say the BB's are jamming. With the hop assembled, but barrel group out of the gun, when you apply the nub and the patch starts to drop, what do you see when you look into the hop chamber? I bench test every barrel group with a single BB at a time and an air compressor before I ever mount it into a rifle...even pushing the bb through slowly with the hop applied will give you a sense of where the resistance is and how to correct it.
