buckings are a small softish plastic/rubber component inside the hop up

The hop up arm presses on the bucking which presses on the hop up rubber, which directly contacts the BB

Different shaped ones exist for different uses (a H-nub is H shaped to add pressure on both edges and not the middle, much more effective for single shot, but makes no differnece in an auto weapon like an M4 over a normal bucking)

also, remember to add these back into the hop up, it is fiddly, but the gun won't hop without it!

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

 

Resident Patrol Base Techy, any questions about PB, message me and I'll do my best to answer.
