Hoping to see discussions and possible development of after-market parts to improve the platform from user feedback now that the final product is out and thoroughly being beaten into the mud so to speak.

Fielded the gun today and shot like no tomorrow but right of the bat, I see that the hop-up system needs definite improvement. Seems that the nub/bucking has problems engaging the BB in turn affecting range to the point where the cheaper guns were out-ranging the tippmann. (the screw was dailed all the way down even)

Anyone reading this please offer suggestions, fixes advice

Hi,

Feels great, shoots even better. Definitively a keeper.

My hop-up was spot on and I didn't move it. 

My only gripe is the FPS adjustment mechanism which is a bit weird: a quarter or less of a turn and the FPS went down dramatically from 430 to 330 (?!)

I posted this at my blog:

I am looking forward to the next weekend.

Cheers,

Thanks for your response.

Had another weekend of fun with the M4.

The M4 delivers a very tight grouping and quite a long range.  Totally in love with it.

For the fist time I'm not shying away from engagements with other players having guns that are twice as expensive as mine.

Did you do anything to it or did you leave it totally stock

Hi RAIL,

I have it completely stock. I converted it to work from an HPA tank/remote line with the stuff included in the box. Also adjusted the FPS to meet the field requirements. 

My son is growing anxious that I don't pimp the M4. But I am an old guy and the only thing I care is shooting consistently.

Cheers,

Completely stock.
I off course added the red dot, some rail covers and an angle grip.
Now I'm shooting 0.28g BBs and the range and accuracy are outrageously high. 

I'm getting an additional Tippmann M4 for my son. He loves using mine!

Cheers,

Given that polar stars are THE thing among my teenage son's  friends, I think that he going for a Tippmann M4 is a statement. Hopefully the new gun will arrive in time for the weekend.

Cheers,
