Quick Tip: How to Adjust the Hop-Up on your M4 Airsoft Gun

Have you ever wondered how to adjust the hop-up on your M4? This seems like a common thing for an experienced airsofter, but we get tons of questions just like this from our newer players. A good hop-up unit is essential to have for outdoor play, but understanding how to use it is even more important. M4 airsoft hop-up adjustment can really impact the range and accuracy of a replica rifle.

To solve your long-range woes, Dave from Shea Tactical has a quick tip to help you get the most out of your new blaster. Hop-up adds backspin to your BBs, changing the trajectory of its flight path. The right amount of hop-up will help your shots fly straight and true to their target.

Watch Dave’s video to learn how to adjust your M4 hop-up in seconds and then try it out to see what works for you.
