Nozzle to bucking air leak?

Hey all. So I've been using my L96 for quite some time and although the accuracy is decent, I just can't seem to get FPS consistency. Whenever I chrono, I always get variations of 15-20 fps. I'm fairly certain I have an air leak between my nozzle and bucking, as I've tested the cylinder group for air leaks and I can hold my finger over the nozzle for well over 4 minutes without the piston hitting the end of the cylinder. Is there any way to ensure a perfect seal between bucking and nozzle besides just experimenting with tons of different buckings?

For reference, here's the parts list:

Action Army Hop-up chamber
ZCI 420 mm inner barrel with R-hop
Flat hopped 70d Maple Leaf AEG bucking with ridge intact
Action Army and homemade Barrel Spacers
AirsoftPro Cylinder
AirsoftPro Cylinder Head
AirsoftPro Piston
AirsoftPro Spring Guide
Action Army M170
Action Army Zero Trigger

I use a maple leaf flat hopped bucking with r hop as well and I do not get a good nozzle to bucking seal either. Before my modify flat hop bucking wore out, I got really good airseal. I could hold my finger on the tip of the barrel and hold it for about a minute. You should probably pick up a modify flat hop bucking. I need to get another one.

As long as the bucking lip isn't damaged you can improve the air seal by using dental floss to gently squeeze the lip around the nozzle.

It might take a couple of tries to get it right. Put the nozzle in the bucking and whip it with the dental floss, not too tight. Then check the nozzle slides in and out of the bucking without too much resistance.
