    Hey guys,

    I have a laylax 6.03mm barrel that has a 3 sided window. I have a couple of questions regarding R-Hop that I haven't been able to get clear answers for by searching online.

    1) Is a 3-sided window a problem at all?
    2) The barrel has a slight curve in the metal at the back of the window. You can see the VERY slight slant in this photo: ImageUploadedByAirsoft Society1435847456.144820.jpg

    Will this be a problem? If so, any solutions?

    Not a problem at all. Many people have R-hopped barrels like yours, with that style of cut. I myself have R-hopped a pistol barrel, and know people who R-hopped bolt actions and gas blowback rifles. All of which use that window cut.

    As a tip, while you can simply cut and sand the R-hop to size, for best practice, I would also cut the front of the patch at a slant to match the profile of your window.
