Archon's NEW Revolutionary 200 Round Gravity fed hopper

Has any body tried this? Is it worth it?

I think we eventually agreed that it's as bad if not worse than the VL 200 design.

yea, it turns out to be slower feed then the regular grav feeds. it may prevent jamming though. if you want to get a cheaper hopper, get the 12 volt revy. itll keep up with most semi-auto players.

I tried it and didn't like it at all. It doesn't feed any faster than a normal non-electronic/gravity hopper.

Unless you shot a vm68 or something else that kicks like a mule a gravity hopper will give you problems.

Never heard one go off or seen one in person just know its one of the first STBBs and the hammer weighs a whole pound.

Complete waste of your money! Even on my Nasty Typhoon which had lots of kick it was worse than a regular gravity fed by far!

I love how no matter how long that hoppers been out it still "NEW" and "Revolutionary". But yeah, all the thing in the middle does is make the hopper have less capacity.

I don't feel to bad about buying it since I cracked my other gravity and used ebay's "make offer" feature to get it for like $2 or something. basically what you're getting is a ZAP gravity fed hopper. The one in their pictures says Archon on it but the one I got which is the same in everyother way says ZAP. It's definitely not a fast feeder but all I need for my style is gravity anyway.

Boys and girls, let's be aware of the dates of threads we're posting in. We've had MANY threads reopened this weekend that were dead over a month ago. While this one is not that long dead, it is still dead.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter!
