WE P226 BBs roll out of barrel

When racking my P226 the nozzle gets stuck in the hop chamber

Then when I return the slide the nozzle gets stuck on the BB

When I go to fire the BB just rolls out of the gun

I am almost positive I know your issue. First, can you remove the slide, and remove the barrel from the slide. Then, post a pic of the piece that is screwed into the slide, that the gas vents into during firing. If s what I think it is, i will be able to tell from that.

Take a photo of the underside of the nozzle, is the loading nub in place?

hmm... the nozzle actually looks OK... That was the issue with my g17; a broken nozzle that cause the bb to catch like yours... but i guess not

After replacing the hop are you saying that now the nozzle never comes out of the hop unit or it only does it when the slide is racked all the way back? Because its normal for the nozzle to be stuck in there for a reasonable amount of time, so long as it exits as the rack gets to the back its not a problem, indeed holding onto the barrel until the BB has left is better for accuracy.

 

Like I said before, the hop rubber is what keeps the BB in the barrel on these guns so the BB rolling out is related to that, either the rubber is misaligned or its damaged. Either way getting the hop unit apart and working that out is what you need to do to fix that problem.

Its worth mentioning that neither of my gbb guns held the bb in the barrel when i draw the bolt/slide, and each shoots perfectly.

 

My p228 will drop the bb, so i just point it down as i rack the slide, keeping the bb in place. Does that work in your pistol and will it cycle correctly?

 

In my G5, the stock hop rubber would hold onto the bb, but wouldnt lift a 0.25, and when i swapped the bucking and nub to fix the hop performance, the bbs now roll into the mag well when i draw the bolt.

 

I just thought that was the design? Allowing you to easily clear the chamber without fishing for a cleaning rod.

Got the WE USA Hop unit and barrell todays and ta da it works! Getting 315fps and the BBs dont fall out anymore. I think the issue was with the old hop rubber, it had lost its shape after I took it all apart to clean.

 

Note to self never take the hop unit apart lol
