-Detracts less from realism (for milsim markers)
-Cant' be filled more then 2/3 without jamming
-IT'S BRASS EAGLE!!!
I was at action village today (yes I live close enough that I can actually physically visit the store) and I found these. I figured a 50 round hopper for $3.75 was a pretty good deal, so I picked up three today. I've currently spray painted two of them black, and I've left the last one clear for the time being.
After playing around with them on my SIM-4 here's my comments of em...
-Since they hold about 35 rounds they do a pretty good job of simulating an amunition clip as far as how frequently you have to reload and such (more of a concern for mil-sim players).
-You'll be using less paint since you can only fire off about 30 rounds (if filled all the way, the hopper doesn't feed, so it effectively has a 30~40 round capacity), and then only around 3~5 round bursts. This will save you a lot of money and probably do a good job of sharpening your game since you have to make your shots count (just like pump).
-With a clip kit & remote I figure this is about as close as you can come to a real weapon with .68 paintball markers (unless you want to feed three balls at a time into the feedneck manually (yes I HAVE done this before)).
It you're a pump player, hardcore for realism mil-simmer, or just looking to sharpen your game, these are great for you. Cheap, effective, and pretty much a spiffy hopper all around.
