Default Ricochet AK

Hi all,
I ordered a Ricochet AK as my first ever electric hopper. It's for my MR-1 and my reason for buying it is that it was inexpensive ($29 + s/h) and I won't be upgrading to an e-trigger so I don't need a higher feed rate.

What can you tell me about this model? Please be specific, not just "it sucks" or "it rocks". Reviews are not bad (9/10 at pbreview).

Also I thought I read something about other impellers which can fit the AK. What were they and do they help?

They are alright hoppers. I havent owned one since I started, but it'll be fast enough for a mech.

yeah, i had one on my brass eagle and my imagine. it'll feed paint fine unless you manage to pull about 7-8 bps with your mech (it can be done...), then you'll notice chops. and if you ever want to upgrade, i think the ricochet 2K upgrade kit will work, but its been a while since i've checked.
