So I finally took the dive and bought a GHK m4. I'm a huge fan of the realism and feel of the rifle but I find it lacking at medium ranges where I would have no problem with my avalon. I was debating on either the maple leaf crazy jet or TNT apx hopup/tight bore combo and possibly some heavier bbs.

Would you guys suggest one brand over the other and what weight would you typically run in this setup?

Currently a Stock GHK m4a1 fsb(14.5" barrel), shooting roughly 350 fps with .30 bbs. I use both green gas and propane.
Thanks in advance

You don't need that barrel...you need a packing that spins the bb better.

Look into Maple Leaf specific packings/rubbers/buckings for the GHK M4 Hot Shots...in rubber or Cool Shots in silicone.

If you need a new barrel...Crazy Jets are proven. T-N.T S+ are very new...I have some (new), but don't have the matched packings yet...

Sounds like something isnt right with your gun, i own a GHK M4 CQBR and im consistently hitting out to 225ft with .36 bbs and the stock hop up.

Don't use GG...that is the last thing you want to introduce into the gas path - oil.

Hop-up packing and bb should be an oil free interface. Clean it and see if the bb spins better to give you more range.

Yes to Propane only.

What bb weight are you using now?

OK after taking it out a couple more times, I've got the gun dialed in around 25yards and can make man sized hits at 50yards fairly consistently.
However I've noticed that I cant get more than 26 rounds in a mag, I have 5 mags and all seem to be this way. I believe these are 40 rnd mags, have you guys got any suggestions?

I really appreciate everyone sharing they're knowledge and being patient.

That really isn't very good.

I surmised you cleaned the barrel and packing with soap and what propane are you using?
