This product almost needs no introduction. These are fresh stock of the LATEST 2023 VERSION of Flamingo VSR/GBB hop rubbers, designed by Sniper Mechanic in the UK.

The new version has a refined contact patch, as well as inner and outer sealing rings to improve the airseal EVEN FURTHER!

Elements of the design were specifically tailored to suit our Genesis hop unit, as well as all other VSR-type hop units.

We've been using the Flamingo rubbers in all our guns since the beta-testing of the Genesis kit back in 2018, and we were amazed by the beautifully flat trajectory and accuracy of the Flamingo. It even surpassed the performance of the Maple Leaf Autobot and Decepticon hop rubbers during our months of testing.

The Flamingo rubber is a PERFECT for the Genesis hop unit, nice and snug with no PTFE tape needed in our opinion.

Please note that this hop rubber only fits UNBRIDGED barrel windows, it will not fit barrels with a bridge across the back of the hop window, such as the TNT, though the bridges are easily snipped out and filed down.

This is the 60A hardness level which we feel is most suited to heavy ammo such as 0.4g and 0.45g. If you plan to use lighter ammo or a lower FPS, it may be better to get the 50A hardness, which are also available on our store.

This hop rubber should only be used with the Golden Arch concave key that is included with the Genesis kit, not the Flat or Bridge keys.
