Bushmaster soon to be Vaporized and a 2002 Custom Color Vengenance Cocker. Both running on 4500 Nitro Duck Tanks with Warped Sportz Drop and Palmer Stabilizers
Took it out for a day's run. Everything lives up to it. Everyone thought it was not going to work, that the Hopper would not either feed or misfeed because of the surrounding guns going off. NOT so here. Kept up with my bushy and my autococker. Kept up with my happy trigger finger and that says alot from me. Hopper fed constantly through out the day without a single misfed. Oh did I mention that this hopper is not loud at all when it spins.
Only two things that I didn't like.
1) The battery door cracked on me when I installed the battery. I think the plastic used for the foor is too rigid or weak. I think they should use the plastic on the Revy it's a little more flexible and tougher.
2) Same as for the top lid. Plastic feels cheap on it. I'm afraid one hit and wham it shatters.
The good news is that it has nothing to do with performance and these parts can be replaced with Revy parts.
Overall this is a good product if you want consistent shots loaded into your gun without the wait time since it loads on every shot fired versus waiting for the hopper to read empty. The hopper is quiet and reliable which is good. The only thing might be a spec sheet since I like to know how my hopper is made and so I can see what parts I can or cannot replace.
12" J&J Ceramic
PMI Gas Thru Grip
12v Empire Reloader (not the conversion kit, the real deal!)
Cheaper than a 12v revvy w/xboard, I got mine for $49.99
Turns off after 30min, can your revvy do that?
Stronger plastic than revvy's, don't have to worry about feed neck so much.
Feeds paint at every shot fired not when the feed tube is empty
Nothing at all!!
It's sound activated so when you shoot, it feeds. So people think it will try to feed it you are in a bunker and someone next to you is shooting, but it just doesn't happen, even if they are inches away. I think it is really more vibration sensative than sound. It can feed like crazy although I don't have an electro so I dont need 13 bps just yet. Buy this loader now!
pmi pro ts w/ vigilante reg and 14"cp barrel
20oz tank w/ anti-siphon & smartparts on/off valve
Like one other below i just have the hopper and not the conversion kit, its a great hopper, its fast and sound activated, faster then my revy w/ xboard, i havent out shot this hopper yet like i have my revy, its really sensitive, if i close my hopper lid it turns on, but not when other guns are firing.
it doesnt have any empire markings on it but thats no biggy ill just get a few stickers
This is a great hopper, its faster then a revy for about the same price go out and buy it try something new great hopper

I am talking about the whole empire loader, not the upgrade kit.
It is a very good loader. I love how it is sound activated, u dont have to mess with that stupid eye. Every tim u fire with a gun that shoots under 13pbs it fires. I was shootin it on my friends tribal today shootn 16bps, it only missfired a few times, and it never chopped. I also love how it shuts off after 30min.
Looks kind of generic, has no lables or markings on the case.
Thats not bad, just sayn though.
I loved this hopper, it is the best one i have used. Im gonna sell my revvy and buy one.
Either 68/4500 or 68/3000 Flatline

J&J Edge Kit
HALO B or Reloader
This is simply the best upgrade possible for your revy. It's like intellifeed without the wires for any marker. Unlike most hoppers that wait until there is a gap in the feed to start spinning the reload kit spins reliably with every shot so there is always a good flow of paint no matter how hard you hammer on the trigger. I have the hopper neck hose-clamped around the feed neck of my SFL making it sit lower than any low rise out there and I still have a hard time misfeeding a ball. There's also no more eye to get dirty or fail on you. It also comes with a nice impeller.
Lack of any real directions. It's easy to install but if you don't hook up the wires so it spins counter-clockwise the paint will jam. They don't have any mention of this on the package and it could drive you insane trying to figure the problem out.
Auto shut-off feature. While this is'nt normaly a problem for tourney players, like myself, this could cause an issue for scenario guys who will sometimes go for long periods of time without firing and not have a turned-on hopper when they need it.
Easy to install, very reliable and a fairly good price. Pick one up and you won't be sorry. It will make your old revy work like it never has before.
