    Hey guys

    I have a Lightning deluxe 'cocker, well sort of - the body is a Lightning!

    It's a mech at the moment but eventually i do want to convert to electric - but whilst it's a mech, is an agitated hopper enough or should I just shove on a force fed? I have a spare agitated lying around, and as it doesn't have a clamping feedneck, I'll have to sand down quite a lot of material to get the hopper to fit.

    That brings me onto the last part: How hard is it to change the feedneck? or do I need to get a whole new body for it?

    Cheers

    Nev

    I would not recommend getting an agitated hopper these days, however as you have one then there is no problem with using it
    Try it - if paint is ready whenever you shoot then it's up to the job

    The only real disadvantage agitation has against pure gravity is when the paint is low - some will just spin or popcorn the paint around inside instead of it dropping

    Ref the feedneck - don't know, it depends on how standard the feedneck thread is

    I had a agitated loader on my old mech cocker a few years back.. Never ran in to problems. Also if you plan to convert it to electric then won't hurt to have the hopper prepared ready.
