Re: Question about BB's

What I was told, that convinced me to start using heavier BBs (.28 and .30) was that with the increased density of the BB there is less chance of air bubbles in the BBs. This means you will get fewer "fliers," The BB has more inertia, meaning it is harder to change it from its present course. So it ...

Re: KWA M4 CQR Cylinder

Sounds like hop-up, that is what effects range.

I had a gun shooting 120 FPS (backwards ported cylinder), but the hop-up was good and the BBs traveled far and straight. Just very slowly.

I have heard of KWAs having hop-up issues, but like I said, I have only heard of that.
