    I just use my 200 round Proto primo gravity loader on my pumps. Profile isn't huge and it feeds really well too

    I've also got a 50 shot winchester hopper, but it doesn't feed that well - especially when full. The GxG 50 round hoppers shown above are very flimsy. I've seen them get smashed by a direct paintball hit.

    I'll be ordering one of these when they go on sale in may

    The rivet ends poking into the hopper may also restrict movement and cause miss feeds

    At the price he's charging it's a no brainer in my book

    Just a pity I have to hang on until May to purchase one, but I'm sure it'll be worth the wait :)

    i think the issue is that the inside of the loader is basicaly flat with a hole in the middle so theres nothing to encourage the paint to move towards the hole ant when that do its all in 1 go so it isnt organised... TBH. i have learnt quite a lot from this project and had fun experimenting ...

    i am looking at the proto Primo and there ia a hopper that looks like the A5 hopper with a smaller feed neck an its only $13

    i might look at the revolver thing... i love the 10 shot mag for its size and that it can shoot at ant angle but 10 shots sometimes just isn't enough...

    It'll give a similar capacity to mini hoppers like the winchester, but should feed balls more reliably with a minimal profile. Plus reloading with full 10 shot tubes would be easy. I see it as a good compromise between stock class and open class for pistols and pumps

    I hope this makes sense... i would love it is they made 5 of the 10 shot hopper from the Sniper fitted into a pod (100 shot size it ideal) then made into the revolver it it looks more like a marker loader... i got the idea from the look of the qLoader

    might be a good mk2 revolver mod... you heard it here 1st (y)
