Review: I picked this hopper up because i was looking for a replacement for the bulky stock hopper that came with the a5.

When I first used this product, the first thing that I noticed is that it was a bit loud, but that is not much of an issue for me since my marker is loud.

Anyways, my biggest problem with this hopper is the fact that it feels so cheap. So far it has held up just fine to my abuse, but when you open the lid, and have it up, there is a lot of free play, and i'm worried that it may be a little too easy to break right there.

But overall I think that this hopper is worth the money, and it does exactly what it is supposed to do, fit tight, and hold balls. I also like the fact that the lid is clear, so it is a little bit easier to see how many balls you have left.
Conclusion: This is definately worth the ten dollars I paid for it, it gives the a5 a little bit slimmer look.

If you are looking for a replacement to the stock hopper on the a5 than this is for you.

Mine doesn't have that much free play with the lid, though I can tell what you're talking about. Also, consider getting the Sniper (any who havn't bought this but might). It has a lineing to muffle noise, and its nice, I got one and don't regret it at all. Especially at $20 (where I got mine anyway).
