i currently have an old discontinued brass eagle eradicator. its hopper is gravity feed. do i need to buy a new hopper along with my acs?

It'd be a good idea. You'll most likely be firing at higher speed rates. I'd say definatly look into something that will feed at least 15+BPS. And while the ACS (Don't forget to break it in) prevents some chops, it won't stop them all.

Yes. A marker capable up to 20bps will absolutely chop paintballs without end. A gravity feed hopper will not keep up, and will not feed paintballs fast enough into the chamber to be fired. Even though there is an acs, i STRONGLY suggest you get an agitated hopper. My recommendations are an Evolution II (eggy for short) a Revolution, or a Halo B. Trust me, you will be much more pleased and better off. Hope this helped

Yes a new hopper will be good for future markers. Also, look into HPA if you want to get into paintball more.

You should get an eggy or the new Fasta hopper from Kingman.

Buy at least an eggy. I've seen some cheap halo's around, too. But Eggys are decently fast and very cheap.

Break it in?? What does this consist of?

Just taking the bolt out and compressing the spring inside it a few hundred times. Just sit on the coutch and do it while watching tv. There are other ways to do it, but this is probably the best way to do it without wasting a tank of air.

Get an empire reloader. It will keep up with you, it only turns when you're firing(sound activated), it's not as ugly as some of the eggs, and you can get a new one for around 55 bucks. E-bay used approximately $35.

yes and no. go to pbreview.com and look under hoppers and select quantrum. i have one of these and it will feed but there are numerous problems with it. save up your money and get something better:)

do i need to get an adapter or will it go straight on the gun as is?

Pick up a low profile feed neck and you will drop the hopper down several inches giving a more compact lower profile as well as locking the hopper solidly to the gun.
