I've had my SP-8 for a while now, and have loved except for 1 little annoyance that hasn't left me since the day I bought the gun: the Elbows required for the hopper. They always break for me and never seem to grip the neck either making my hopper turn up side down or sometimes fall off. I was thinking of buying a Q-Loader, but they cost a lot of money. What's a better, cheaper solution?

Im not familiar with the sp-8 but, if they are the cheap plastic ones like on a spider, hose clamps always worked for me. You can find them at any hardware store.

Vinyl electric tape gives a good grip, and make sure to tighten the elbow with a screwdriver/pliers. Wrap the tape around the feedneck.

electrical/duct tape on the feedneck will snug the elbow on nicely. I actually had to do it for my Qloader 90*elbow to make sure it wont pop off

It's a little on the expensive side for an elbow but it will permantly fix your problem. Here is the link. All aluminum elbow.
