I think, if I remember correctly, you can take the internals out of this loader and put them into a regular halo or reloader b shell...

Intereting concept, though.

id def rock it then. looks like the hopper would just fall backward lol. it would make it possible.

also sounds like you can change it to add a higher loading capacity...
not a bad idea, but kind of ugly

I like it how it is. I may get one if the shell strength is decent.

I just hope it's not another first gen Pulse. Those necks snapped so easy. I can see these breaking with the poor superman slides I see every time I reff.

I help test this loader. Its kosher. Has a ton of features and still more that still have yet to be introduced into a paintball marker. This was designed by the guy that patented the Halo design. There is more to this loader yet to be introduced. Once it is it can and will revolutionize paintball.

I gotta give pulse this......I bought two used pulses and they just replaced both completely. Can't beat that!

The magna is really light compared to a halo. It's also very expensive at cup. $160 + the rf chip!

how was your face? did the loader get up in it, or did you have space... you know... for your face.

I don't think NPS will be as friendly with the shell replacement though. DXS did a good job replacing their hoppers shells.

Yeah, how did it line up? Also, have you tried it on an ION, or other short body gun like a Mini?

My EGGII even got close to my face when placed on an ION.

Doesn't this add to the back-weight of a gun? The tank is already adding enough to that area and if you put more with the hopper positioned there, isn't it more unballanced and uncomfortable?

From my observations, it looks like the battery door is on the back. This means the front is going to be more durable being one peice. Also notice how the raceway is positioned inside the hopper. The cone is centered so that the balls don't have to roll down a ramp into the cone. This probably insures faster loading speed.

I am very curious. MORE INFO!!!

Spacing from my mask to loader wasn't bad. The one I was shooting it on was on an SL-74 Ego and it didn't fit that bad on there. Although it was a bit top heavy considering this thing can take over 200 paintballs. I was working with them on 2 different configurations and in both applications the loader worked well. That Ego was one of the fastest markers I have ever shot.

I think if you were to try and balance your marker where your hand supports the weight, it would fall forward. atleast when im lugging around my marker, it has a tendency to want to roll over so the hopper is facing down. I think this might counterbalance it enough to make it have a higher 'center mass'

reminds me of an egg, except with a bigger surface area.
