2. What you're looking at is the dust cover of the ejection port. Right side of the rifle, above the magwell, in the upper receiver.

3. When you pull back the charging handle, the dust cover should flip open. Some don't and you have to open it with your finger nail. A fake metal sheet may be in should slide back, but if it doesn't just push it back gently.

4. Inside near the front, you'll see the right side of the hopup unit.

5. The rear-most dial (and usually the biggest one) is the hopup adjustment wheel. That gear turns other gears that affect how much hopup you have on.

6. Looking at the hopup adjustment wheel. You turn it clockwise for more hopup and counter clockwise for less. The optimal amount will cause your shots to go straight out and then drop. Start with the hopup off...and add a bit little by little.

7. It's FREAKING FREEZING your hopup rubber has probably stiffened up... When it does that, it will cease to put any backspin on the bbs...causing lousy shots. Too much oil, water, etc...on the rubber will do the same thing. review:
- it's cold...don't shoot ver 2 mechboxes (i.e. your M4) in the cold
- it's cold...your hopup rubber is too stiff to apply backspin properly.

Best of luck...shoot down in the basement like everyone else...
no my gun is kept nice and warm inside i just stood in the porch for about 2 mins. fired off a few shots is all, anyways so to turn off hop up just turn gear as far as it goes counter clockwise?
