    Most air soft websites, and most air soft websites.

    Also prime sells his rubbers to put over your barrel when entering the hop up, for a price of 12 bucks.

    No no no no, REAPS is NOT the same as R-hop, R-hop is superior. Don't buy REAPS.

    Not exactly, it's an IR-Hop, it's essentially the same thing as an R-hop. But, it can perform in colder temperatures better than a regular R-hop can. But, this is extremely overpriced, about doubled to be exact. You can get them from Clandestine for about $12-$13, but, read through Robin's R-hop installation guide to get the best results. Or, have someone who knows what they're doing install it for you.

    Now, I don't I know a lot about ER-hop like I do R-hop and IR-hop. But, it's supposed to be better for longer ranged guns. Does it work as it should? I don't know from knowledge, so I couldn't say. But, I don't think HS would sell it as if it would if it didn't.

    Thanks. I will prob just pick up a standard rhop but i have one more question :p. When it says rhop three pack does that mean it will have 3 individual buckings to put in my 3 guns?

    Yes, you will get 3 individual R-hops, but if you're new to this you might get one out of all three right. :p

    Rhops are not buckings. They're little rubber patches that go in the barrel window and more gently and evenly applies hop to the bb than the regular hop system.

    A bucking then slides over the R-Hop... Just finishing what Archer was saying.

    Here are pictures of R-Hopped and ER-Hopped barrels to give you an idea.

    Well obviously I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to hop ups. And I've searched for some answers but I couldn't find any and I always save forums for last resort

    One problem Marine, is that those are suggestions for buckings for standard set-ups. R-hop is a bit different. I won't give it away, but check out Clandestine Airsoft and search around, you'll eventually come to one which describes exactly what it's best at in the description.

    Also, the thing you're looking for in an R hop bucking is that it seals well. The nub inside of them doesn't matter.

    Rich, the buckings listed there are fine for both. They wouldn't be in those links if they didn't seal well.
