Review: I got this hopper about two manths before I bought an Ion, and I ws still using a Spyder TL-X at the time. I got it all exited that I would no longer have to shake my old ricochet around every couple shots, so I put it on and, the bottom of the hopper was about 3 inches above my gun, and I could just see the feedneck adapter flex and bend any time I moved my gun, not so good. So I stopped using it untill I got my Ion (Whole other story) and I put it on, it set OK, hold a good amount of paint, so I turn it on, BZZZZZZ, it makes the most unbelievable racket, you'd think for 120$ they could put in some gears maybe a few steps up from LEGO quality (wich is not a shot at LEGO, but still 120$ buys A LOT of LEGO) So I get out on the feild, and it works OK for about 10 games, then I'm running to a bunker, just about to paste someone, and I hear this god awfull grinding sound, I start shooting, and after about 5 shots, I'm just cycling air, turns out the motor burned out...WELL...I called Viewloader and they tell me its 30$ for a new motor. So i tell them to go to hell and took the motor apart. Inside the plastic case is a little shop class motor that 11 year olds use to make cranes in school, and a bunch of flimsy plastic gears. So I took a closer look at the motor, and what actually happened was the negative wire had snapped off the poll, so I soldered it back on, problem solved. But I'm getting a new one anyway because even with the fix, it turns at like 0.001 mph.
Conclusion: It might just be me, because all of my equimpent breaks, even though I take good care of it, but If you buy the egg, be prepared to buy some parts at outrageous prices. But still, works well, when it works!

There is no way this loader you're reviewing is the Egg 2 because mine works perfectly.
Also what you're listing is not what the Egg 2 has. By the way, why did you get this loader for $120?!?!?!
