    Best Hop up Bucking?

    Post  navyseal1000 on 07.01.10 0:31

    Hey, I'm upgrading my TM M4 to the max, and since I'm going to have alot of custom parts in it, I'm needing accuracy bad, I already chose the Prometheus TBB, but I was told alot of good stuff about the Firefly bucking, just wanting to know if anyone knows of any other good, reliable and accurate bucking

    thanks

    Systema and Firefly have done well for me.

    This has been my personal experience:
    my dads sr25 gets a good 50+ more with a cyma ak tbb amd a firefly w/ a guarder nub
    my aug has an awesome prommy tbb and a madbull blue bucking and doesnt get nearly as much range

    Put the firefly in the aug and you will be amazed

    I have personally used firefly twice with horrible results and trent has used them a couple times also with horrible results, both me and trent now run all madbull blue buckings with amazing results, I also know that Rhino uses the madbull blue bucking in almost all his guns.

    Ive had great accuracy and consistency with my 469 length prommy tbb, Prommy neo chamber, firefly hard bucking with firefly hard nub in my CA m15.

    Yeah Prommy makes great TBB's (Prometheus). See, my M4 is going to be around 45 rps, and just looking to upgrade the bucking, really leaning toward the Firefly. But the thing with Trent and Russell, I've got the same gears as them so our rof is probably going to be the same, so its probably the rof. Now I don't see why rof would affect a hop up bucking but I might be wrong

    If you use the firefly nub with the bucking (about a $35 combo), you'll get great results. Or at least I got great results with that. The Prommy bucking is also good, although it's really thick and kind of a pain to get in the the hopup unit if you've got a tight chamber. The King Arms AEG bucking also does well for me.

    Actually ur gears are still slower then both of my sets, I have a v6 gearbox and have a differnet faster chromoly gearset, but u have a v2 and will have the fastest chromoly gears but i still have a faster set not made by the chromoly guy...lol, almost coby but we will still be faster. But rof doesnt effect hopup nub, but u can try the firefly since everyone else recommends them, but i know me and trent will not ever use them again.

    Just wondering did you guys use the firefly nub when you used the firefly buckings?
