"Hop-up" on airsoft guns can be either adjustable, or is already put in the gun. What adjustable hop-up is, is a switch usually on the side of your gun that you can control the amount of backwards spin the bb has when it comes out of the barrel. The more spin backwards, the better, this means the bb is going to fly straighter, farther, and more accurate because when it goes through the air, the backwards spin keeps it floating. I would suggest a gun with adjustable because you can judge your shots. ( by the way, hop-up that is already in the gun means you cant adjust it, it stays how it is)
on airsoft guns, the hop-up will put spin on the BB and cause it to go further and be more accurate.
You put on the hop-up.
Spin up or Hop up is when a bb is shot from an airsoft gun, there is a friction placed on the upper side of the bb while exiting the barrel. This friction causes the bb to "spin upward" or a backwards / under spin. This mechanism is called the Hop-Up. The Hop-Up configuration determines the range of bbs or extend the effective range of an airsoft rifle. Most spring airsoft guns come equipped with "built-in" Hop Up which is not adjustable nor calibrated. However, higher end models, such as gas airsoft pistols and electric airsoft rifles can be adjusted or calibrated both to the type of BB being used and the flight path desired. The below diagram illustrates the effects of hopup and how to callibrate your airsoft gun correctly. Towards the bottom of diagram it coveres the bernoulli's principle and it's effect on the path of a BB with hopup.
And airsoft company that makes videos and sells guns.
If it functions like a typical m4 style airsoft gun with an adjustable hop up, then the charging handle opens the dust cover to reveal the hop up.
