Do you know if anyone still makes the cheese-wedge style hoppers?

The sock holders...I forgot about the sock holders.
We usually used plastic caps from milk jugs with slits cut in them to stick the 10 round tube into...


Good stuff....

^ ^ ^ I used weed whacker line. Stick a larger PVC coupler on at the feed end, drill holes in it for the line and dremel channels on the outside for the lines and a heavy duty o-ring to hold them in place.


I still run a very old, very beat up, 9v revvy on my Sniper.


You can occasionally find the cheese wedges hoppers on e-bay.
-95% of people with a flatline think it makes the gun inaccurate; if you are the part of the other 5%, who take the time to sit down and tune it right, put this in your sig.

BTW I just got two of the wedge hoppers from I&I sports. I like the thin profile on them and can't wait to try one on my Phantom.
