    No matter how much I try shaving down the R hop, it keeps on over hopping. I'm not even using a hop up arm and I'm shooting 0.32g bbs at 430 fps. I left a little space to prevent the pinching effect, and the top of the R hop is perfectly flush with the barrel. The bucking has also been correctly modded.

    Shave each end a tad more and glue the patch into place. After that, make sure your barrel is cleaned w/ alcohol or that hydrogen peroxide stuff (I think). If that doesn't work, keep shaving each end of the patch ever so slightly.

    Each end as in top and bottom (bottom is the part that touches the bb), or the front and back of the r hop (front as in the closest to the bb that doesn't touch it)

    Also, I don't want to glue the R hop in place until I know that it is perfectly tuned. If I glue it in place and it still over hops, it's going to be MUCH harder to modify. Also, I cleaned the R hop with soapy water and dried it immediately. Still over hops.
