Kjw bolt consistency and hop

Hi, I've been playing with my HPA'd KJW M700 and it works like a dream. There are only 2 problems i face. First is the most annoying, if you have an m700 (not sure about tanaka) you may know how to fix this. In the bolt you know how the striker spring can be adjusted? Well it always comes lose over time. I've heard people loctite this, but where so I do that if so? Also how will I change out the striker spring if I do? Second is my hop up. I was wondering aha kind of nubs/buckings you guys use? I use a KA Hard Marui bucking (which is what some people use) but how can I get more hop? Sometimes when I turn hop all the way up, it's not enough. I've also naked some nubs. But they are too sharp and broke one of my buckings. Id'e be thankful if someone can answer these questions. ;D

Hey P2skater,

Because, as HPA users, we can adjust our output PSI, which means you do not need to use your adjustments on the striker spring. You should screw the striker adjustment all the way in to make the spring hit as hard as it can. Loctite it if you want, put it on the threads of where the spring is.

As for hop up, I found that either R-hop and M-nub (difficult-ish) or the flat-hop and standard nub (easier)
Ah ok so if u wanted to change out my striker spring? How would u do that if it's loc-tited? Nor will I not need a new one if I have the G&G spring?

Edit: ok what kind if loctite? I see that there is red and blue, what do u use bob?
Your striker spring is locked down by a set screw in the back. If the striker spring is constantly coming loose then you need to tighten the screw. You should never need to loctite the long screw which holds the spring unless you've stripped the threads completely.

Ok, that helps but u didn't loctite, I crazy glued the threads and it didn't move/break the glue after 100 shots so I think I'm good, thanks.
