    So I bought a SSG P69 off a guy on here gun arrived today in good shape, but I can't for the life of me get it to shoot accurately, BB dispersion is all over the place i.e. One high, one left, one High right etc. I have a 4x32 scope on it and have tried adjusting hop up but still all over the place!! Any ideas on how to sort this would be gratefully received!!

    Did You try cleaning the barrel? What bb's are you using? What is your grouping and at what range?

    A SSG is not a very accurate rifle to begin with, not like a TM VSR.

    Yes I cleaned the barrel with small microfibre on the rod. .20 bbs @ 30m grouping is metres apart!! Rifle was what my budget would allow as I'm new to the sport and wanted to make sure I stick with it before spending huge money!

    What brand of bb's do you have heavier bb's to try?

    I hav attached a pic of them, would the bb make that much of a difference. They have very good accuracy out of my 1911


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,438 ✭✭✭✭thermo


    Bb's make all the difference, and some guns "like" some bb's better than others....

    I don't, if you google "cybergun .20 high density bbs" they are white and came in a bottle of 5000. Would the bb make a big difference as I use them in my 1911 and my grouping is good with that?.

    No offence but they are only fit for grenades. Get "Swiss arms" ( hobby airsoft) or "nuprol" ( Airsofteire) brands, way better ammo.


    Avoid any bb's that. One in a bottle with a loading nozzle top.

    No offence taken, as I said I'm a newbie so any info I can get is great, I'll call to jokers of airsoft tomorrow and see what he has. What weight would you recommend for long distance accuracy??


  • Registered Users Posts: 882 ✭✭✭dazza161989


    I just checked his website he stocks G&G ..... any good??


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,438 ✭✭✭✭thermo


    I use .28's in everything, pistols, rifles and shot guns. I'd say get .25's or .28's or both........

    Do you lose much range with the heavier bb?

    They USED to be, not quite so much now....... order some online.

    Sounds good! If you had to choose which of the two you mentioned would you go for??


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,438 ✭✭✭✭thermo


    Depending on your set up not really. What you loose in overall range you make up in usable range.

    Even a clone like a JG bar 10, then replace the inner barrel and hop up rubber.

    Ended up staying up late last night so dismantled the gun, & removed the barrell and cleaned it thoroughly as well as a small drop of oil to the hop up rubber. Seemed to be firing much better this morning before work, so I will get the .25 bbs and spend some time adjusting hop up and zeroing scope on Saturday and see how it goes.


  • Registered Users Posts: 882 ✭✭✭dazza161989


    Bought some .25 and some .32 today seems to make a big difference, also getting hop up rubber changed on Saturday.
