Get rid of the flimsy plastic sleeve. This aluminum feed adapter slips over the feed and secures using a set screw. No need to tighten or loosen anything, the viewloader fits snugly in place. Available in Black or Silver.
The Check It Products Feed Adapter is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
12 inch Teardrop Barrel
Dye Sticky Grip
Check It Slip Feed
No chance of it braking like the plastic ones.
The screw scratched the feed neck on my gun.
This is so much better then those crummy plastic feed necks. It is more durable so I don't have to worry about it breaking or anything. It looks really cool with my black hopper. The only bad thing is the screw scratched the paint off my feed neck or whatever you call .The thing that the elbow connects to.
Get this it's a great inexpencive upgrade

-Keeps the hopper secure, wont rotate or slip off
-Lowers the hopper, not a low-rise, more like mid
-aluminum, so it wont ever break
-Good quality anno, hasn't scratched on me yet
-looks good on the gun
-20 bucks is a little steep for what it is
-It is very easy to dent/drill the feedneck by overtightening the set screw, but a little cation fixes this
-If your revvy shell breaks(which it will), better hope you have a dremel cuz the broken feedneck gets stuck in there good.
I never liked the plastic elbows very much. They couldnt grip the metal feedneck of the gun, so the rotated easily. If you overtightened them to get them to stay, they cracked. They put the hopper up very high, higher than any highrise ive everseen(and i hate nortma highrises). On top of that, i thought they were ugly as sin. The CiP adapter keeps the hopper secure, lowers it, and looks better. Since its a snug fit on the revvy neck, i keep it on the revvy and loosen the setscrew to take off the hopper when i'm done playing. Overall, its a very good prodeuct, with a higher than expected price(though well worth it in my opinion).
Spyder Xtra, APP 6 Chamber X-Chamber, DYE Boomstick, 12v VL Hopper, Bob Long 8 inch LPC, and Kingman Regulator Kit
Well it certainly keeps the hopper stable,
it fits tight on most Kingman guns and I belive so on cockers, pmi, and tippmans 2. JT guns will see a problem but they dont need these.
It looks cool with a black hopper (I have a clear)
Good for tournament level players.
Why is the plastic so bad?
It just adds more weight to the gun
I've never had a problem with breaking plastic on anything but a Brass Eagle Blade (wutever you do dont buy that peice o crap)
Only if you are obsessed with buying every possible accessory for paintball guns should you pay for this EM1. I give it a 7/7 because I don't see anything wrong with the Plastic Feed Adapter I have already. You choose for yourself.
It does look a lot better than a plastic one and I doubt it will ever crack. Bu there is no set screw for the hopper end. So my 12v revy doesn't fit very snug. Not a big deal to fix, just a little tape around the bottom of the hopper neck and it fits perfect now. But I don't think it would have been that much harder to add a set screw up top to eliminate the whole problem. But I guess they got that right on their new model. To bad it wasn't done the first time.
I'll give it a 9, but if your going to buy one, just buy the newer sure-fit feed neck model.
It looks good and doesnt move around once you set it.
Some hoppers are loose
I've kept breaking those flimsy plastic adapters, about 5 of them, and to get each replaced has cost me $5 a piece. This thing only costs $15 and it looks great and works VERY well with the oring neck of the Ricochet hoppers.
If you break lots of plastic necks this thing is for you. It looks great and works with most hoppers. Some you'll have to sand and others you'll have to slip an oring on the neck.

spyder pilot acs (red to black fade), check it products feed adpater, extreme rage overdrive loader, smart parts teardrop, 32 degrees spring set, 20 oz anti siphon co2 tank
Gives you a low profile, keeps your loader tight
Well my gun came with a plastic elbow and I always got shot in the loader and that always pissed me off. Later on that day my friend breaks his elbow tryin to tighten it up. I was afraid that was goin to happen me so the next I go my local pb shop. I told them I wanted something inexpensive and that'll give your loader a low profile. They told me to get this and its been a good investment ever since.

I bought this feedneck when I snapped another of countless plastic feednecks. I wanted something that would stand up and take a beating. When I got it in, I was impressed with the nice finish on it, and it took all of 30 seconds to install. You just slide it on and tighten the set screw. After one day of play, the CIP logo on it had all but worn off, but I didn't care because the sliver finish still looked good. It held my 12v Revvy tightly, and did it's job, but it was still a little too high for my likings. Another problem I had was the set screw occasionally backing out, and the last time I tightened it down good, it stripped the head. Now it's a permanent part of my stock feedneck adapter. I ended up replacing this with a low-rise CCM helical clamping unit, partly because I wanted a low profile, and partly because I was getting an Egg and I didn't think this neck would handle it. It did the job while I had it, but I knew there was better out there and I got something else.
It's cheaper than a clamping neck, and stronger than a plastic POS, so for the occasional player or the guy on a limited budget, it's not a bad buy. For someone who wants the best, or someone who has more money to burn, I'd look elsewhere. This one cost me 20.00, for another 10 you can get the CCM lowrise clamping neck.
spyder imagine with a 16 inch boomstick barrell,dye sticky grips ,vl 12v hopper ,and check it feed neck
So much better than the plastic elbows
Set screw scratches paint but what can you expect with metal on metal contact
Like i said before so much better than thoes crapy plastic elbows dont have to worry about it turning cracking or dropping the hopper and the price cant go wrong i picked it up for about 15 bucks i would recomed this product to anyone who is still using those plastic crappy elbows
Aluminum, a little (maybe 1/2 inch) shorter than plastic elbow.
Doesn't hold the hopper tight.
Well, I got this product to replace my plastic elbow some time ago and it is an ok product. I was kinda dissapointed in this product , it doesn't even hold the hopper as tight as a plastic elbow will . Plastic elbows can actually tighten. But it does lower the hopper maybe a half inch of so.
If you're thinking of buying this product, I highly reccomend spending the extra $10-20 and getting a good clamping feedneck. (Trinity and CCM make GREAT ones).
Spyder Xtra, 14 inch CP barrel, Empire Reloader2, ESP 2.0 with CAMD frame, 14oz Co2 tank, Trinity cam locking low rise feed neck
I got this feed neck for 12.50. So it was pretty cheap. This is great to use for non-motorzed hoppers. ONLY!!!!!!! I switched over to my motorized reloader 2 months after i got it and i got huge problems. My hopper only could fit down it 1 cm even after sanding it. So finally i got the idea to use electrical tape and that solved that problem but created more. It looks kind of stupid if you have the tape on and go to events with it and it is a pain in the ass to clean regularly inside the neck with it taped on. So, finally 2 weeks ago I got my trinity feed neck and i am very happy with it so far.
This is a great feed neck for gravity feed hoppers that don't have motors. My brother has one and he hasn't had any problems I don't recommend this for people who have or are thinking of getting a powered hopper. I recommend seriously thinking about getting an adjustable feed neck (I got mine for $27.50) and i couldn't be more pleased.
I give this a six because i had HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! problems with it with my powered hopper but i give it a slightly above average rating because I think it is a great next step for a rec baller who is completely fed up with plastic feed necks (costs almost the same too)
