The Q-Lock solves all your hopper issues. Open the quick release lever, insert the hopper, hand-tighten the thumbscrew and then close the lever. No tools needed. The Q-Lock has an abrasive internal surface to securely hold any hopper in its place. The Q-Lock is currently available for all Smart Parts markers. The Q-Lock also fits most center feed Spyder and Piranha markers with an adapter.
The Smart Parts Q-Lock Feed Tube is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Holds any hopper great, no sanding/tape required
Not out for the pm6 :(
This feedneck is great, holds any hopper without sanding or using tape, The clamp is easily adjustable witout use of allen wrench, easily adjust it with just your fingers. Best feedneck ive used by far.
Other aftermarket feedneck ive used (hybrid hedloc) was horrible, i had to use tape with the revvy, and required sanding for the halo.
Get this feedneck for any gun that its out for without hesitation, its great.
Easy geting hopper on and off , keeps hopper from moving.
Over time it will wear down the neck on your hopper.
I like mine, its a HECK of allot better that the neck that comes stock on the ion, u have to spend 20 min. to get your hopper out of those things. but ya 30 bucks very well spent.
It also makes your gun look kinda cool, just 1 more thing that makes you gun more personal, its allot better than the piece of CRAP reds q-lock. that thing SUCKS!!!
Oh and i said that that it will wear down your feed neck, but u could probably put like a piece of ducktape around the neck to prevent that.
Get 1 NOW!!!!!! I got mint at "bigpearlpaintball.com"

I picked up the Q-Lock two days after the first time I played with my Ion. I played one game with it completely stock to get a feel for what I wanted to change and what I thought I might keep. Even when I bought it I was certain I would replace the feedneck right away, the stock neck is not adjustable and is quite ugly; not that looks matter. I had used a Q-Lock on my Impulse and was very happy with the results so naturally I picked up another, it is a no rise. I heated the old feedneck, got it off the body and cleaned the threads before installing the Q-Lock. Used some Loctite, installed it and let it sit for 24 hours and tested it out. Like the one on my Impulse this one works flawlesly. I think I can honestly say this is the best feedneck on the market, period.
Great feedneck, very user friendly and accepts every loader out there. There is a reason I bought one for my Ion after the results I had with the one on my Impulse.
stock ion feedneck and a really crappy clamp feedneck.

Ok there really isn't much to say about this feedneck. It is cheap, easy to install, and fits my hopper when the stock ion feedneck didn't;. It is also adjustable and closes so your hopper is sure not to fall out it is great. I would get this feedneck before any other because it fits any hopper.

Having problems with lower end paint.
Well, i've had this feedneck as Long as i've had my ion, along with the stock of course. and I love it, it's quick, easy and secure. but recently i've noticed that some paints (RPS Rampage for example) had bore sizes too large for my feedneck, jamming halfway in and staying there, if i push them through they fire fine, it's not just that the paint is bad, the feed tube is a smaller diameter than the paint.
I'm not sure if this is a problem many have faced, but i'll have to widen it a tiny bit using something or another.
It's a great product, but with mine, and possibly others it wont feed the paint... which seems the least to ask a paint feed neck to do.
Other than this fixable problem, i love my Q-lock, and seeing as i haven't heard the problem anywhere else, you might as well get it
hope this review helps, just be aware that can happen

Holds hopper well
REALLY low profile
I got this right away with my ion. I ordered a Low-rise Q-lock, but i received a NO-rise Q-lock.. I didnt know that these even existed! Its really really nice, easy to install, easy to use, and most important it holds my Halo in place really tight. Wont even budge. I had to sand it down a bit though :D
For those looking to original SP products to keep their ION on warranty get this. 300% better than the stock feedneck. Cant go wrong with this one.

Your hoppers not going any where!
Scratches Hopper Feedneck
Lets face it, no one likes a hopper than swings and goes evrywhere when they run, they need something that locks that thing down, and dosen't let it go anywhere, well this my friend is what you may have been looking for! I have a blue one on my SP Ion, and it keeps my Egg II exactly where I want it, locked down.
The only thing I find wrong with it, is the fact that the grips inside scratch up your hoppers feedneck, which isn't a real major deal, because when its in the feedneck, you can't see it, but it does mess it up to some degree, which depreciates its value.
Its gonna keep your hopper locked down, but I give it a 8, as it scratches up the hopper feedneck.
Locks hopper in place
Scratches/ sands down hopper feedneck- not that bad
Price- worth every penny though
This is feedneck is just about perfect. It doesn't need tools like the ST one, locks the hopper completely in place (unlike the ST one), gives you a lower profile, and looks nice. The only bad thing is that the grippy metal part inside of it can start to sand down your hopper's feedneck. It isn't that bad and probably won't ever happen so much that it becomes a problem. The grippy metal is also quite important for keeping the hopper in place and not spinning around. The only time you need tools is right when you get it, to tighten the screw, but then all you have to do to take your hopper in and out is move the lever thing. The price is a little higher than other feednecks, but it is worth every penny. If you get one that is like $10 cheaper but it doesn't fit, its not worth it at all.
This is a great feedneck. It is the best feedneck I've ever used and I doubt anything can get any better. If you are thinking about getting this feedneck, I would definitly recommend getting it.

This is the best clamping feedneck out there for an ion. Get this now if u have the stock. If you are thinking about getting an ion, get this and a NDZ trigger and a QEV and a Drop Forward. U will be set till u can get an Onn/Off, then get a freak.
