Max Model hop up chamber in SRS A2 Covert

Hi there, good evening,

I have bought my SRS A2 Covert a few weeks ago. I have tested it, out of the box, just to get my own feeling about it, and then I changed the spring a couple of times (to a PDI 500, and right now with a Silverback M160). A few days ago, I decided to go with the hop up chamber, and I went with the MaxModel, just because I wanted to try something different, and a colleague with the same model has bought the Kraken, and I know of another two friends with the FAST one (I'd love to get more feedback about any of these options, or any other that I may have missed)

Now, the issues. Right after mounting the MaxModel along with a Silverback 80 rubber, I tested it and I noticed something was wrong. The sound was a little bit different, a lower sound, but slightly louder, and a significant FPS loss. However, the compression in the piston/cylinder was good, which obviously pointed to the hop up chamber or the rubber, so I took the rifle to the shop and we tested it.

After several tries, the problem was with the rubber. Silverback rubber and MaxModel chamber doesn't like each other. The rubber is too thick for this chamber, so it compresses too much and doesn't allow the BB to move through, impending it from flowing through.

So, after several hop rubbers, we ended up using a Mapple Leaf super macaron, and instantly the FPS went from 420-430 FPS with 0,20g up to 500 FPS (2.4 J)

My question, has anyone experienced similar problems with MaxModel?
