    I’ve tried three diffrent barrell assmeblies for my 1911 Tac and all of them have either consistently shot down or up. I’ve adjusted the hopup and nothing works. It isn’t the issue where the hop is gets pushed back because I have checked multiple times. I don’t have a box to send it in for repairs so I need to know how I can fix it. If anyone knows that would be great! Thank you in advance.

    And is this a EF 1911 Tac?

    Clean the barrel with a solvent to take out any excess grease and oil. Do not use an oil to clean it. Stop oiling your mags. It does not need it and it puts oil in places where oil is not needed and it does not put oil where it is needed.

    Try a good .20g minimum bb, do not shoot any "colored" .12g bb.

    That is pretty much all you can do. The EF1911 is a dead end pistol.

    I tried. The mound is stuck on the same position no matter what I do on all three new barrels. Is it possible I got that unlucky?

    The arm that pulls down on the packing may be disconnected.

    Sadly that unit is pinned and you cannot take those pins out without damaging the unit.

    This is the most common issue I've run into with these TBH. This is the one time that soaking your bucking in silicone oil might actually help (try other solutions first obviously, as reason for failure can vary).

    The hop up unit on these guns break easily.

    Yup. Like I said, number one failure point that I've seen... However, or can be caused by the bucking drying out, which silicone oil can help reverse sometimes.
