Madwelshman will be able to tell you more.

The long and short of it, everyone who has sent in their filled in warranty card will be given a free replacement sun gear.

STTS decided the standard CTW sun gear was not as good as required, much like the air nozzle that they replaced on all UK spec ones. Only difference here is they realized too late.

It's great customer service.

(Almost) all the information I know is in this thread: http://forums.zeroin.co.uk/showthread.php?157662-Celcius-CTW-Team-Alpha

There is also a hop unit 'upgrade' on the horizon, but I don't want to steal Madwelshmans thunder, I believe he mentions it on the zeroin thread.

Both my CTW's are @ BadgerTac having the gears replaced now & that is what i was told, that there will be a "recall" for everyone that sent in their warranty cards Smile

There's no pleasing some people Laughing

From what I have 'heard', there is a new hop unit which will be included in a future production which is just a UK made better version of the CTW / PTW style one - it wont be offered as another freebie it will just be another upgrade of the UK spec CTW's as standard (like the strengthened air nozzle).

HOWEVER I have hears that there is a prototype of a new Hop unit design being developed in conjunction with JD airsoft in Cannock as an aftermarket purchase which aims to give 200ft + range!!!!! It apparently will be available in the summer if it can be perfected.

Gotta get me one of them..... CTW owners will be able to out shoot snipers!!!!!

Well 200+ feet is 61 meters (as 200 feet is 60.96 Very Happy )

A .3 will reach 52 meters on a blue spring , with good accuracy, before it starts to drop , and it will reach 62 meters with man size accuracy if you take account of the drop - all on standard barrel and hop rubber - not a standard hop sleeve or operation tho :-)

Test conducted in still air and measured with a measuring wheel

The hop that JD have is not a tackleberry super hop.

Joe90 , you can create a pseudo r hop(obviously the r hop kit wont work as its intended for aeg barrels and the normal aeg rubber) quite easily, but you need very fine control, as the sensitivity of the elongated patch is very high(unless you spend ages filing the hop rubber to be perfect,and then it changes with each bb weight)

If you wanted to fit a R-Hop the easiest thing to do is to mod the hopup unit to take standard AEG barrels.

I'll be interested in any hop devolopments, I've seen what Tach has posted so far, but he's not giving much away as to what's happening behind the hop adjustment, but maybe that's all his new hop is, a much better way to adjust it?

I'll stay tuned for JD Airsoft version Smile

Welcome Marcus, I suppose thinking of it in meters, as I'm a metric man, 61M isn't too much of a stretch, but i'm not getting that much accuracy from mine at 30M at the moment...

Happyal,

Fitting an aeg barrel presents a few more problems than just getting the barrel to fit and seal with the aeg hop rubber and seal, the operation of the hop is one, as it has to be operated from the top etc, etc it can be done but then you need a barrel (outside diameter is different etc) and a way of operating it - The hop that JD have uses everything out of your CTW but (Hop,Barrel) but the rest is, well different!

Below is definitely a vers 1 PROTOTYPE of a CTW using a aeg barrel etc, and is nothing like the JD one, but it works ok , but , what with barrels, hop rubbers etc, it just makes it more expensive and the results from the JD hop seemed more stable.

Simply return the gun to where you purchased it from and they will do the work.

They have the gears in stock - you will probably have to leave it with them for a few days but its all gravy!!!!
