Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
This is the new FBM Factory Hooker Feed Neck with a locking lever to lock your hopper to your marker. The only thing better would be a chain and padlock. The lever opens and closes without tools with the simple flick of your finger. this means when your hopper jams mid game, your not stuck throwing paint and watching the other team laugh at you. No more windfall effect spinning like a drunk after 50 beers. Fits evo's, halo's, reloader b's, rev's... Fits press in autococker and spyder bodies
Product Availability 
The Fireball Mountain FBM Hooker Clamping Feedneck is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Weaknesses: See the review
Review: Well, the neck is a very low profile and holds the hopper very very securely, but I purchased the feedneck and just had the feed sent to me, and they sent the wrong feed, but no problem, I have the tools to press it in, and ream the extra matrial off, and drill the detent hole. My only gripe is with FBM themselves, the tollerences on the other parts I ordered and own from them are very low, though I have fixed them with my tools.

So my problem was with the company, not the part, so I have to rank the part as an 8 because the part is a little floppy, and loose, but it works very well. It should serve me well.
Conclusion: I recomend this product, though you have to send the gun to FBM, unless you have the know how, and the tools to make the part fit, and press it in.

Review: I was tired of having to sand down hopper necks to get them to fit on my cocker with it's fixed feed neck, so I took the plunge and sent my marker to Fireball Mountain to have their Hooker Feed Neck installed. I sent the marker in on 20 June and got it back on 1 July - pretty good turn-around and I only missed 1 weekend of paintball.

I absolutely love the new feed neck! It is easily adjustable without tools and will fit practically any hopper on the market. I was able to adjust it to fit both my Reloader 2 and my Reloader B, and NO SANDING WAS REQUIRED! The clamp lets you snug down on the hopper in a vice-like grip......no hopper movement at all!.

The only drawbacks would be the price for some people. It cost me a total of about $70, which included shipping both ways. Even with the cost, it is well worth it to have an adjustable feed neck now, I'd do it all again in a heartbeat.
Conclusion: If you have a cocker (or practically any marker) with a fixed feed neck, I would highly recommend getting Fireball Mountain to install their Hooker Feed Neck for you. It is worth every penny, and the have great customer service and turn-around time.
