it is a good gun. Nothing should be wrong. Im pretty sure it is a J&J not a C&C LOL.

Id suggest getting an Egg2. Used they are like 20-30 dollars and great loaders for the player you are.

No problem, good luck! The B/S/T here'd be a good place to put a "WTB" thread. Just put the title of the thread as "WTB Eggy" and put in that you're looking for an Egg2 with Z-Board, or an Egg3. Put one over in PBN's WTB section, too. Subscribe to the threads with the "thread options" tab at the top of the first post and tell it to notify you however often you want of posts in the thread. Up them every once in a while (here, post in the thread "up" every 24hrs or so, and on PBN click the "Up" button every 8hrs) to keep them up near the top until you've found a good hopper with what you're looking for.

If you need anything else, come on back and ask it, even if it does seem dumb to you! :)

Aside from the eggs...VL Revvis in both 9 and 12 volt are nice also. I've got 3 that I use, one of them dedicated to my Warp fed Mag.

Ricochet Apache is also a decent loader for the Imagine.

just a suggestion, but the fasta 18v hopper really feed fast, i have an ion that is setup at 17bps, and it keeps up i never have a misfire. so i think it is a great hopper, never tried the 9v version but i am sure they are good, but just a little slower, The 18v version is pretty easy on batteries i easily get two boxes of paint before i have to change batteries. I haven't really kept up with it, so i am goiing by I played 3 weekends before changing the batteries in it.

i agree with tumtum00 its fast, quiet, and and has a great ball capacity compare to the other loads that i have seen

yea i forgot to mention the ball capacity, thanks man, it holds around 230 balls. i think most halos hold around 175 and all others do too, it is a little bigger than most hoppers but longer doesn't sit up any higher.

I have an empire reloader 2.

Its done me well, and feeds decently quick for electro spyders. Its also a little cheaper, and alot more durable imo.

(not sure if this store has good rep, but it was to give u an idea of the product)
http://www.ansgear.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=EMPIRERELOADER2SMK&click=7

I would also suggest (i dont think your imagine had one) a feedneck to keep your new loader snug. you have to find one with holes (not tabs)

I purchased this one last night http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=160223148790&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=006
now about this feedneck what does it look like and where can i get it.:confused:

That's a good snag! $50 for an Egg3 BNIB is good! Normally they're $35-45 used, and some have issues, just to compare to the deal you got.

As for a feedneck, any "Spyder feedneck with holes." Means that the tabs on the feedneck that attach it to the marker have screw holes in them. I'll get you a link to one I recommend, give me a minute to find one with holes and I'll edit it into this post.

EDIT: Here's a couple links for ya, found two different clamping feednecks that demonstrate the kinds of feednecks available to you. The NDZ is a lever (cam) locking design while the Shocktech is a standard screw design. I prefer the lever personally.
