    Ok so I just installed a tightbore barrel into my 416 and now the hop up wont move unless I get a tool and put some force. Before I installed it I could move it easily. It still shoots. What could have happened?

    Are you sure you slid the barrel with the bucking in as far as possible? And is your nub in correctly?

    I'll double check. Anything else I should look for?

    I think that your barrel is displaced so the hopup window isn't aligned. Look for anything that might affect that. (e.x. Foreign matter in the hopup) Reseating the assembly might also work to fix it, sometimes weird stuff happens.
