I have. It amounted to drilling a tiny hole in the feed tube, and gluing a chopped up o-ring segment into it so that it would form a little rubber ramp to hold BBs in. This o-ring/slot method seems to be a lot less error prone (and removable/adjustable).
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the M14 and P90, purportedly two of the most stable AEG hop ups in existence, also use the nut/ring/drum style adjustment, yes?. I wonder if they made it with notches on the inside spiral groove so that there is some tactile response when you adjust it, and to help keep it locked in place once set.
Sorry for triple posting :S
I just remembered the M14 uses a vertical screw and lever, not a ring groove. The P90 does use a ring groove adjustment system though.
