Alright, I created a thread about this earlier, so I figured I'd try and start the actual project.

I'm trying to create a list of statistics regarding loaders/hoppers. So, what I'm asking for is anyone who can provide me with statistics, length, width, height, and weight of hopper/loader that you have measured/taken yourself. Also, links to sites that already have postings will also be appreciated, but the values I use for this database will be based on multiple measurements for each value, to insure accuracy. I will be taking measurements of my own, but I don't nearly have the capability to compile this fact sheet on my own, and that's why I need your help. Not to mention I don't even own a loader beyond a stock class feed tube.

So, I'm looking for size dimensions (height/width/length) of hoppers loaders. Include the lid, feedneck, etc in those measurements. If possible, please measure in English and Metric to as much accuracy as possible. I'm also looking for the weight of hoppers/loaders with all electronics in, but without batteries or paint.

Thank you for your assistance, and hopefully one day, there will be a freely available database for all players to use.

Tippman Cyclone Feed. 18 bps. Relies on excess blowback for cycling. 180 round hopper standard.

Pros: No batteries to die. Extremely reliable. Quick and easy removal of shell. Multible aftermarket shell designs in different colors. 98 Custom coneverison kit is only $65.

Cons: More complicated than most other hoppers, but still very easy to install/maintain. Only avalable for Tippmanns.

We have one of those I think, I think it is pinned in the hopper section, you could pm the person who made it, and you can tell them to add this info, but other than that, we have one.

Is anyone willing to take their own measurements for this?
