Some BB's are fast, some aren't.

My friend has this issue with his rifle, that when he fires full auto, most BB's go screaming at 370FPS, but a few actually just fly out slowly and fall not 5 feet from us.

Same with Semi auto, he fires 1, nice and fast, fires another, fast, fires the third.. it travels about 5-10 feet before falling.

What could this be caused by?

Thank you.

Try turning the hop-up on a tiny bit, sounds like BB's are rolling down the barrel.

Thanks for the quick reply, I checked the hopup, and while doing so saw how dirty the barrel was too, after a good cleaning and hop up adjustment it seems it fires better.

Unfortunately he uses a pretty low end Hicap that doesn't feed as fast as the rifle fires, lol.

Know any people here that sell some good Midcaps (the ones you don't need to wind?)

Wouldn't mind finding a mag that resembles this http://www.impactguns.com/store/medi...mag_ml_fde.jpg

I believe they're called "Pmags"

Thank you

Google Airsoft Pmags and you'll get a tonne of over seas stores.

why not go with low caps? many milsims will require it, so you will have the mags and know how often you should change the mag. I have also heard of many problems with mid caps jamming when firing in full auto.

The 120 rounders are a lot better quality than the rest. Totally different build.
