Default Thinking about ditchin the egg...

Hey guys. I am using an automag with a classic valve as my main gun. Im going to get it milled and set up for a pump kit as well, so it will serve as my pump and my semi. Now, my decision is this: Im using an egg right now for my hopper. Its kinda big, and i dont really need the speed. I have been thinking about downgrading too something like a TSA frontman or sometihng thats not as big. Just looking for a second opinion. So what would you guys do. Note: for pump, i will be using some kind of stick feed or 45 round hopper.

TSA = no

I tried those (the tiny black brass eagle one) but they always seemed to jam, I use the Reloader on my Ion for semi usually also.

yeppers, i use an old reloader on my mags. they look better then the TSAs and are reliable workhorse hoppers that get the job done. i love the way it sits on top of the gun, the profile is really small even with the stock feedneck

ok, did that require any sanding to get into the stock ULE neck?

And phil, i do get alot of jams with my brass eagle one. I remember finding a site about making an electric 50 rd. hopper using and Indian Springs 50 rd. hopper and the bottom half of a revy, so i am thinking about possibly trading the egg and maybe some cash for 2 revvys or a reloader and a revvy and doing this mod.

no sanding required, actually i used 1 layer of electrical tape to keep it nice and snug in the feedneck

I would just use a revvy or reloader ttink. In pump mode I would still go for a 45 round hopper but it just depend's on you really. I can't remember what everybody uses but I hat my clear brass eagle 45 rounder it doesn't feed for nothign but there are a couple good ones out there.

well i might not even need the 45 rounder if i can find a AM stick feed since the ULE bodies are angel threaded. Do you know where to find them at?
