View Full Version : Low profile hopper

05-25-2008, 04:40 PM
Does anyone know of a low profile hopper that isn't a qloader? (too scared to get one :grin: ) Preferably gravity feed.

My MR1 came with a Tacamo deflection style hopper which helps ball bounce off without breaking, as for low profile? I saw a Tippmann hopper the other day that looked to be low and sleak. I'll see if I can find you a link.

Dont know if this is what you're looking for.

I think those only fit on the cyclone feed.

yeah, the only low-profile hopper I know of that is spyder-friendly is the qloader, sorry.

well u can get Qloader or Ricochet 2k hopper (low profile) http://www.rockstartactical.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=299

dude - don't go with a ricochet because they are loud and do not feed properly. the angles of the hopper make it so the balls bunch up and not fall into the gun. I have one and yes it has a lower profile but it hardly feeds. if you want, you can cut down the metal feedneck, the plastic elbow, and the hopper raceway (where the paintballs fall through) and drop your hopper around 2-3 inches. I have done this and i got my hopper about 3 inches lower and 2 inches closer to the gun. another option is a warp feed, but it seems bulky to me.

I'd say go q-loader, but, since you don't want to, I took a chance and tried the "archon" so called "revolutionary". It's actually a little bit lower than some others and feeds pretty well. I'd say it's worth it. Here's the link

You can find some cheaper ones by typing in "archon hopper", but this one shows you more of what it's built as. I wouldn't go for the hype but it's a pretty good gravity hopper.

i guess Qloader is ur best choice here.

Ok thanks you everyone.
And if anyone is interested, the pocket hopper is slightly low profile.

tacamo also makes one that is like the archon one... its got 2 feed sides and i think its a little smaller than reg gravity fed, feeds a bit faster but looks like flatter surfaces instead of the rounded looking viewloader ones. idk if they got pics but i know truepaintball.com sells them ( my local store. i looked at the hopper there and they looked like they could be good i think they were liek 5-8 bucks. or something or other.)

I have the archon hopper, feeds nicely and deflects paintballs

05-27-2008, 10:23 PM
Yeah, I did some research and Tacamo/ZAP are the ones making the archon now

I've heard some ppl dont like it at all but I think those are the ppl that think its meant to replace electric agitators. The archon is simply a better grav hopper.

All you need is a ballpin hammer and the largest ring. Just hammer the largest ring into the shape of the foregrip.
