Products Used:
None really, just the standard gravity fed hopper that came with the marker. This is faster and more reliable, no dry fires in five hoppers of paint.
Marker Setup: Spyder TL-R, trinity clamping feed neck, J&J Ceramic barrel, Kingman C.A.M.D. trigger frame, JCS stock, Kingman ACS delrin bolt, 20 oz CO2, remote.
Strengths: Light, strong, no batteries, easy installation, holds 200+, narrow profile, lid is perfect.
Weaknesses: Poor manufacturing quality, and obviously poor quality control, poor customer service.
Review: 1. The two halves of the body don't fit together well at all, there are gaps in the seams all the way down to the feed neck.

2. My package was missing the 90 degree angle adapter so the hose sticks straight out at a right angle to my marker. I hope I don't get it caught on a branch in the woods.

3. The PTO pin doesn't seem to be long enough. I can feel quite a bit of gas escaping from the marker body where the PTO pin is. This can't be good for CO2 efficiency and I wonder if it would work even better if there was no leak.

Amazingly, those weaknesses don't seem to affect function at all, I just hate crappy manufacturing and poor quality control, especially since it's stamped "MADE IN THE USA".

Anyway... functionally I can't complain, the thing just keeps on feeding and I had no misfires up to 13BPS. It's a great idea, good design, almost perfectly executed.

I've emailed Action Village (purchased for $24.95) and the manufacturer to see if they can do anything about that PTO pin and the 90 degree adapter. If I get any action from them I'll re-post here.

I haven't used this in a paintball battle yet but having gone through five hoppers of paint from 8-13 BPS I don't think I'll have any problems at all.

***********************EDIT**************************

They're shipping another hopper with a longer PTO pin to me. That's great!
Conclusion: Perfect rate of fire and paint capacity for me without spending a lot of money and worrying about batteries? Hells yeah.
