So I've been experimenting with homemade nubs lately and throwing ideas around in my head. So far I've tried nerf foams(works okay, but everytime I turn my hop-up on I have to re-zero my scope). I've been working on cutting a pencil eraser properly, but have to to try it.
I was wondering if sturdy paper would work? It would be easy to shape into the cylindrical shape and easy to cut. I also just read in another thread about using thick wire, which sounds feasible. I've also thought of using a shoelace.
What materials have you guys made a hop-up from? How were the results?
I spent most of the day testing out my rifle. Over all not to bad! I need to play with the hop-up to get it really zeroed in (and zero in my scope) but it fixed allot of hooking because its sitting straight now and not crooked.
Update.. I have got my hop-up set really nice and I must say, the new nub is working amazingly! I am so consistent I can hit the head on a bold about 80ft away. Although there are probably better materials, the nail mod works for me.
