Hey guys! I just bought a new CA M24 sniper rifle (Enhanced Ver.) 3 days ago and its great. I installed an Laytex 6.03 inner barrel in her and after I put it all back together I took it out to shoot. When I shot it with .36g bb's. It would fly to the right and sometimes fly straight. So what do you guys think the problem is? The hop up is no a little bit not on all the way.

Could be that you need to fiddle with the hopup some more in terms of alignment and hop adjustment.

The rubber could be dirty or your barrel could be dirty.

Could also be low quality BB's, you said you shot with .36's whic is a very nice weight but what brand/grade did you get?

also how far down range do the BB start to curve? 50ft? 150ft?

I would start with a good cleaning of your system..
turn the hop all the way off.. and fire a few rounds

if the BBs flight path are the same its an alignment issue...
if the BBs flight is altering after 125ft it could be environmental or BB quality

also take a really good look at the barrel sometimes they are bent or have manufacturing defects
or more commonly left over residue..

Well I washed my .36g bb's and cleaned the barrel. It shoots great now. After I messed with the hop up a little. Turning it up and down, The shots weren't curving right as much as they did and some times would curve left. I shot a human size target at around 220FT away! And how much wind can affect the bb? It was not that winding but I think it affect mine down to 150ft.

Because the BBs are so light (yes even .43g are light) it does not take much wind to move them off aim.
gusts as little as 3 - 6 mph are all it takes. the issue is not BB weight its loss of velocity.
the 500fps muzzle velocity has dropped to 330-360fps by 160ft and it is decelerating at an exponential rate.

so while the FPS combated the wind drift in the first half of the shot.. it does succumb in the latter half of the shot.

*EDIT by Dutton*
Sorry you spelled exponential wrong, it was driving me crazy!

Thanks and I got another problem. When I cock the bolt and load the bb in the chamber. I pull the trigger and it does fire. IT then fired after I kept on pull the trigger a couple times. Does anyone know how to fix that? I think it has something to do with the trigger adjuster screw.

Try tightening it a little, sounds like you've got it a little too loose (which give the trigger more room to play) and the trigger isn't quite engaging enough to release the sear. Once you've got it in place and working like it should, locktite that thing otherwise it'll cause problems in the future.

However, once you've got the trigger working like you want it, it'll stand up for quite some time. I've had my M24 for a good 5+ years at anywhere between 500-600 FPS / 153-182 MPS (depending on the field) with the same stock trigger unit.

OK It was the damn trigger adjuster screw. Thanks guys for the help.
The problem is, even if it is set right initially, any sort of tension (even the stock spring) is going to make that screw loosen to the point where the trigger wont engage the sear (it's the nature of the beast), which is why I recommended the locktite, or really any medium strength thread lock you can find. Once you've got it adjusted right though, and thread-locked in placed, you'll be golden with the trigger for a very long time.

Glad you were able to get her working right.
