Okay here's a newb question;
Recently I got fed up with my mp5 hop-up unit. Having an AK hop-up unit around, I dremeled it to fit, and while it's not finished, I can pretty much say that it will work just as well as in an AK because I haven't had to dremel away any essential parts. Moral of the story, I'm confident in my abilities to retrofit hopups.
Now I want a smaller hop-up unit for my Jg Bar 10, because I like the smaller (diameter wise) of the real steel Remington 700 (which would require a smaller hop-up due to the smaller barrel diameter)... I've noticed that the L96 hop-up unit is much smaller, but I would have to incorporate a new cylinder nozzle. So what about AEG hop-ups? Can they be tuned to work as effectively as Bolt-Action with some modding? Right now I'm thinking about an M14/AUG hop-up, but ideas are needed too...(the only hop-ups I've ever handled in person are the Mp5, Ak, Bar 10, and L96. All clones by the way)
P.S. I'm also thinking of making a new barrel out of an aluminium bat, seeing as I don't have access to a lathe and that is the only tapered metal object around...
