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.
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.
solid construction, good looks, wontfall off or break, no more hopper falling off
none so far :)
I belive that the ONLY plastic that should EAVER be on a paintball gun is deleron (for the bolt) so when I got my spyeder Imagine with the plastic freed neck I was horrified. I let it slide for a while because I was short on money (just got a new gun) but when that plastic thing cracked I got pisseed and bought this thig. So should you. Go get one if you are using a plastic one.
I love this product. If you do not own one you should. You will love it. I promise. I give it a 10.

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.

-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).

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.
