This could also be caused by Lubing your mags, which would in turn lube your hop-up. Running a full clip of the Lubed BB's should wipe most of it away, and increase accuracy.

After years of tinkering I have come to the firm conclusion that hop-ups should never be lubed, at all, ever, regardless of brand or what the owner's manual says. This will mean some wear, and you may have to change hop-up sleeves or adjusters from time to time, but so what?

Also, your BB is of concern. Use a quality BB, the heavier the better if consistancy is your goal. Never cheap out on BBs.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
