    Ben...No Soup for you!

    Any barrel that is not ML compatible is old school traditional style.

    I’ve been out of the airsoft world for a couple of years, so all these new buckings are new to me. My question is what would be the best maple leaf bucking for WE GBB M16. My M16 has been converted to a Daytona so I don’t know if that really makes a difference or not.

    This is now getting really close to RHOP, yet maintaining drop in simplicity...barrel window modification needed most likely of course.

    MR HOP, replaces the Hero Series of Super and Wonder

    IMG_20200605_150429.jpg Available in AEG Packings and VSR types. To bad so sad APS2/3...

    What kind of hop window modification is needed?

    Are you starting to carry these?

    One, just big enough to accommodate the contact patch.

    Yes...I have these now.

    And they dropped the harder durometer too...

    Sorry for the intrusion on y’all’s conversation. I’m totally a noob and need help with what would be the best packing/nub set up for my Thompson. I’m currently having feeding issues and I’ve been told it could possibly be my packing. Thanks in advance!

    So, I finally got to equip a pistol with MR HOP-UP for VSR.

    It was an old Gen 1 mix of an E&L Glock and "something" else.

    My Gosh...they can always seem to keep tweeking these things for more performance.

    Sad the populace is "stuck" on the Transformer Series.

    I dialed in .25g and there was no drop or drift out to 22 yards on a 97mm 6.02mm TBB

    And the 2021 Series is in my possesion - Instead of "rubber" the VSR type packings are made of Silicone.

    They took the mold from the Transformer Series and recast the packing in Silicone.

    Calling it 2021 Desepticon

    AEG wise it looks like the Macaron.

    I started seeing these recently on Reddit and HopUp. I assumed it was just old stock being repackaged to look new.

    Do you know if they perform any better or worse being Silicone instead of rubber?

    It's grippy...but I have not installed any yet.

    They are not re-bags of old stuff...they are translucent. None of the older units ae translucent.

    Plus...people can't get over transformer series...
