My Jing Gong AK-47 AEG keeps shooting 2 BBs at once in single shot mode!

I'm pretty new to airsoft. I just got a Jing Gong AK-47 (it is the wood, folding stock version, model number: ak47s). It only costs about $110, so it isn't spectactular, but it is really accurate and shoots at 350, so I can't complain to much for the price. However, I just started having an issue with it shooting 2 bbs at once while in single shot mode. It didn't do this at first, now it seems to get worse and worse.

I have run about 3000 or so rounds through it. Does it need to be lubed in a specific place? Note: I have not lubed the gun at all yet, but I do have the silicon spray. Also, the magazine is a 600 round high cap wind up mag. It seems to perform very well and I have never had any issues with it yet.

So does anyone know what I need to do to fix this problem? It is literally doing this like every other shot now, and it is driving me insane!

When it fires 2 shots, is it cycling twice or shooting 2 BB's in 1 cycle?

It is shooting 2 bbs in one cycle, which makes them shoot way slower and drop off really fast.

Where did you get this gun? Was it new off a site or bought used?

you bought it from the US?

You my friend... are very, very lucky.
Importing black airsoft guns from the US is illegal

Unless he's in the US, which is quite possible...

This double feeding could be caused by many things. Start by taking apart your hopup and inspecting it, as well as its rubber.

Now that I think about it, I don't think that it did this when the hop-up was turned off. Would different hop up positions make a difference? Right now the hop up is only on like 1/4 of the max, if that.

FYI I am in the US.

Turn it all the way off and adjust from there. The idea is to have you hopup adjusted to make the bb go as far as possible while going as straight as possible. Too much hopup can cause bb's to jam, causing double, triple, etc, feeding.
