Today I received my new hop up arm for my vsr-10. I went with the danger wrex hop arm. I have heard good things about how much more hop it gives to your shot, and increased range. I finished installing it and went out to test it out. First couple shots went straight up into the air, then i realized I had the hop-up all the way up. I corrected this and turned it almost all the way off. Next 5 shots went pretty far, but still had significant curve up. I figured that I need to increase the weight of my ammo. I have always shot .3's with no problems, but this arm puts a new meaning on the word hop-UP. I was looking for some opinions on what weight ammo I should get next. I have never shot anything above .3's. Is there a big difference from .36-.40? I am open to all opinions.

You should always be able to turn hop all the way off if needed. Compare this arm to the stock arm and check to see if the nub is longer on this one. If you're sure it's not anything else causing the increased hop and it's just the arm, I think you should file the nub down a bit, just enough to disable hop for your bbs when turned all the way off. This is just my opinion, other people may think differently. You can always use the TDC mod, which can give you as much hop as your heart desires.

When I have the arm turned off the hop is off. It just seems like the littlest adjustment makes a huge difference. I am pretty sure that heavier BB would fix it. I can always shave the arm down a little bit for lesser effects.

Before you try to butcher your hop up arm, try some heavier ammo. I am sure you have some friends that have heavy ammo, give that a try. And if that doesn't work, try to adjust the hop nub in the bucking first. A bucking is cheap and easy to replace, where the arm is going to be harder to get it exact.

But you really like the arm.... hmm I may have to pick one of them up then :D With the TDC that I have it may just give me that better option!

I would deffenitly suggest it woogie. You get full contact on the bb. It took away the right curve that the vsr rifles have, because of the full contact. I have a nice straight shot just to much hop.

ok first off stay away from Airsoft GI brand G4 bbs. They are HORRIBLE!
OK if your shooting at 500fps with a.20s, use .36s.
Anything over 535fps with .20s use .40s

I use Madbulls, and thats all I use.

My suggestion to you on this matter is going to be simple yet meaningful: there is really no way we can suggest you .36g or .40g - if your platform has reached a working stage and you know you are going to field it this way, the best thing I can suggest you is to get some heavier BBs of different weights and try them out. No matter how scientific we try and be with the airsmithing part.. BBs are something that yeld a kind of magic in the sense that each rifle has its own preference.. Most will confirm that even two identical rifles minus one upgrade or two might differ on BBs preference.

If you have friends with other BBs, get some from them..otherwise this matter is so important I would buy BBs myself to test them out..even at the expense of some wasted ten bucks bill :)

i use to run Madbull .36's, then went up to WE .43's, but recently i switched to Goldenball .32's and this is a gun that shoots 545-548. I would say experiment with different brands and weights till you find a mix that your rifle really likes.
