Has anyone had more than normal problems with gravitiy hoppers feeding prolites? Thinking about maybe grinding out some of the inside of the offset piece but I don't want it to break. Any thoughts appreciated, using these as rentals so not crazy about buying forcefeed hoppers fpr them.

Take a hopper and cut a half inch off one of the necks, then place it in the feedneck to see if the holes dont line up

I havent ever heard of ball feeding problems beyond the usual shake of the hopper

Make sure the orange ball detent is seated properly and not over-worn.

What kind of problems are you having exactly? The blowback will bobble the balls a tiny bit. A common old school trick was to drill a small hole towards the base of the offset elbow to help the paint from being blown back as much. Also check both the the neck of the hopper and the marker for any burrs or edges to sand down. If the markers are heavily used they may even benefit from a rough cleaning to get rid of any sicky paint residue. Unfortunately they never did feel that well to begin with, the best you can do is to use a hopper with a long feedneck, not shoot too much, and leave some space at the top of the hopper when filling.

Problems Include: Even with excessive shaking balls are not getting to the breach. Prolites have a huge amount of trigger pull are fairly slow firing to start with but consecutive firing almost always results in chopped balls.

Orange detents are all newly replaced. I think I will sand and clean see if I get any better results. Thanks all.

sanding is about all you can do

Have you tried putting a force feed on one and seeing if it will feed any differently
