Pretty new to the GelBlaster scene and have been doing it with my brother, we have both recently modded our blasters and are having issues with Hopups. I am running a modded Vector V2 and he has a Wells M401. Both have metal barrels, 18:1 metal gears, Green O-rings, bigger springs and the Wells also has a new cylinder + piston. We are unable to give you an accurate measurement on FPS but its clearly much higher than stock.
We both have the issue of Milkies often flying out of the barrel and travelling up (or down), not just a little but about 5metres up at about 10-15m distance. Also inconstant spread on a large majority of the shots, this includes semi and full-auto. (Without a hopup), if we try and hopup we basically destroy 95% of the gels, even after slowly tweaking the hopup from top to bottom each shot.
Gels are being soaked the night before we do testing, so at least 8 hours in water and kept moist up until loading into mags. There is a little movement in my barrel with the Vector, I haven’t gotten stabilising Orings yet but have ordered them, apart from that gels are leaving the barrel without anything else, no silencers or additional modification to the end of the barrel.
Not sure if anyone can throw some advice or might know whats going on but its not ideal right now. Also tested with 7v and 11v battery, basically same issues.
Appreciate your time to help.
