The adjustable nozzle is a great tool for anyone who often builds and upgrades AEG guns. Its advantage is in the adjustable length, thanks to which determining the ideal nozzle length is a matter of a few minutes.
The nozzle consists of two parts, which are connected by a thread with low pitch, so you can adjust the length of the nozzle exactly as needed by loosening or tightening this thread. All you have to do is buy a nozzle with the length range in which you are likely to need for your gun.
After unpacking, unscrew the nozzle, drip silicone oil on the thread or apply a small amount of grease to make the regulation as smoothly as possible, then screw it back on and install it in the gearbox in the same way as a standard nozzle. After assembling the gun, test whether the gun feed the BBs and has the best possible performance with considering to the remaining parts in the gun. If the gun does not feed, the nozzle is probably too long - just tight it a bit and shorten its length. If the gun feed, but you have not yet reached optimum performance, unscrew the nozzle a little to extend it. Thanks to the fine thread, it is possible to regulate the length of the nozzle with almost a certain accuracy to hundredths of a millimeter. After each length change, always test that the gun serves reliably and that you achieve better performance results.
After selecting the optimal length, carefully remove the nozzle from the gearbox and measure its current length (ideally with an accurate, digital caliper). Then buy a quality, standard nozzle with a non-regulated length in this length and use it in the gun.
Never use the adjustable nozzle to replace the standard nozzle. Even after securing the thread with glue, there is a risk of gradual loosening of the thread and this can result in misalignment of the nozzle, deformation and damage of its thread and thus of the nozzle itself!
This adjustable nozzle from the manufacturer MAXX Model is made of titanium , thanks to which it has a very smooth and hard surface, and in combination with two sealing O-rings it offers a great sealing. In addition, the thread itself is more durable than, for example, adjustable plastic nozzles. Another great advantage of this nozzle is the locking protrusion / lock on its collar. When adjusting the length, it rests on the edge of the tappet plate and the nozzle does not rotate in it, which guarantees smooth and reliable regulation. In the case of nozzles without this lock, it can happen that it rotates in the tappet plate and regulation is therefore not possible (such nozzles often have to be glued to the arm with at least thread glue)

Table of types of guns for individual variants of adjustable nozzles. The table is only indicative - there are the most common types of guns, individual manufacturers may differ in length of the stock nozzle for the same type of gun and the final length of the nozzle is affected by many factors, such as other parts used in the gun.
|Nozzle length*||Compatible guns|
|19 - 22 mm||AK, M4 / M16, MP5, Thompson|
|22 - 25 mm||G36, MP40, Sig 550|
|26 - 29 mm||Scar-L, Masada PTS|
|30 - 33 mm||Univerzální|
|33 - 36 mm||CZ 805 Bren, Masada, M60|
|37 - 40 mm||Scar-H|
*The nozzles have a real maximum dimension bigger up to 2 mm. However, due to the stable seating of the moving part, we recommend not to exceed the prescribed maximum dimension unnecessarily in order to avoid misalignment and loosening of the nozzle and consequent damage mentioned above. In addition, a nozzle that is too loose may not seal perfectly, so the measured values may be skewed - lower.
