Stock Class feed

How can I make a stock class feed? I know he whole PVC thing, but how can I make the end piece? I don't want a cap, cuz it would complicate the reload cycle more than I would like. Basically, I want the rubber thing that will feed, but won't let paintballs back out.

There is a sticky in this section titled How to Build a Stock Class Stick Feeder.

But if you don't want the cap. I recommend you just build the feed block and stick the whole 10 round reloading tube into the feed block. That's what I do. It's fast, easy, and simple.

That's what I was thinking I would have to do. What size PVC do I need? I'm doing this on a M98; I'm goin to cut the feedneck so it will fit.

- Size: 3/4" inside diameter (i.d.) CPVC (the outside diameter must be 7/8") Now, notice i said "C-P-V-C", and not "PVC". The "C" on the front is very important. How much you will have to buy depends on the hardware store you purchase it from. Get more than you need. I went out and bought a whole 12 foot length and had them cut it into 2 pieces so that it would fit into my car. When i was making my stick feeders, i made quite a few. If you can, get only what you need for what you are doing at the time.


CPVC is great, as it will insulate your paintballs if you play where it's hot. It does not transfer heat very readily. However, the problem i have had with CPVC, is that the inside diameter was not perfectly round, and the balls were getting stuck. The solution.. well, at least in my case.. i bored out the inside of the CPVC out on a lathe. Now not all of you have access to a machine shop like I do, so you may have to have someone do if for you. If you can, try and make sure that your balls will fit the entire length of the piece that you will use. Some of my other friends didn't have the same problems as i did. Others have thought of using a Flex-hone to smooth the inside of the feeder. You may have to get creative... or: Copper tubing. This is an alternative to CPVC. Copper tubing is more reliably round than CPVC. Copper is tougher to cut, but it's not impossible by any means. Copper is a little more costly than CPVC, and it will transfer heat more. On a really hot day, say in Arizona, your paintballs could very well melt in your stick feeder if it is made of copper. A Flex-hone can smooth copper too.

When determining the length of your tube, always allow 1 or 2 balls in your calculations. if you want a 10 round stick feeder, figure out the distance of about 12 balls. (don't forget that 1 or 2 may sit in the elbow of the stick feeder, so the length may end up being only 10 balls long.) The reason for the extra space is that while in the middle of a game, you don't want to wait until you are completely out of paint to reload. By leaving room for a few extras, you can casually reload with your 10 round tube (with a few balls still left in the sick feeder) instead of waiting until you are completely out of paintballs, where you are more vulnerable.
Technically no. I don't have to cut your 98's feed neck. You can just put a short piece of pipping into the 98's 1in feedneck. Let part of it sticking out. Then attach that sticking out part with the feed tube's 1in adapter. All you have to do it tighten both of the 1in adapters and you're good to go. Just make sure you measure that piece of pipping correct.

But that will look like crap. I'd rather just cut it, and epoxy the fitting on.

Not really, if you have the right length both adapters should sit on each other.

With epoxy, you will need to worry about the force you are exerting on to the whole feeder when you reload. If you don't do it correctly it will snap off during the game.
