I recently purchased this hopper, I can't say the ricochet tech. works but I like the look of the hopper makes it stand out a little and I like that, It worked great the first time I used it on my Mokal Fokus, I could not outshoot the hopper what so ever, although after first using it a small hairline crack developed along the feed neck, the hopper didn't hit anything it just started to crack, the second time I used the hopper it would jam when I used an Autococker, would do this consistantly, when I ran it on the Automag it worked great and the same on the Mokal, after this the hairline crack continued to go around the feed neck, on the third time of use with this hopper it finally broke completely around the feed neck. I am very disapointed in this, I purchased a used revy and recently picked up a tripod, and both have given me no problems, using this hopper 3 times within 1 month and it breaks, does not make it worth the 80 I spend on it, I still have to get ahold of Ricochet to attempt to replace it I may have gotten a defective one, when the hopper did work it was amazing I will give it that
Edit: I purchased a new shell kit for it, I was unable to find my purchase receipt so I could not send it in to get replaced, after replacing the shell, I blew out the board, probably from my own doing, but its a fact that it did happen, ended up giving all my pieces in a box to a friend, I love the looks of the Ricochet Hoppers, just need to have a little more reliability.
I would stick with VL with their hoppers much more time tested product. Haven't spoken to Ricochet's Customer Service though to see about replacements though. giving it a 4 out of 10 due to it breaking on 3rd use
4 out of 10
