I have a brass eagle box hopper. 40 rounds. Don't believe they sell them anymore though (maybe used you can find em), too bad. It's my favorite hopper.

Winchester hoppers are pretty nice, but I do have a few problems with them. The first one is the lid, it isn't a flip top. You can fix this by attaching a normal pod lid on and gluing it in place, no big deal.

The next is that when you take a hit to the hopper. The hopper is flexible enough that it will actually make the hit bounce. So you think to yourself, "great, I got lucky" But you soon find out that the hit broke a ball on the inside. Putting some neoprene on the outside could solve this though. Or you could just by a few and change out hoppers when this happens.

I actually got lucky and found that Jasse Paintball happens to carry the old style WGP 40 round hoppers. I ordered from them and got exactly what was in the picture - no imitation hoppers. I personally like these, but they restrict you to loading with 10 round tubes and require a PVC elbow bought at your local hardware store.

You also might get lucky and find some Indian Creek Designs or USI hoppers on eBay. The next step up in hoppers would be VL90s (have one and love every bit about it) or Snapshots. Both of these however hold 90-100 rounds and are a little bigger.

Oh cool... Thanks for the link. I didn't think anyone still made those old WGP Ammo Boxes. If only they still made the cool harness that you could carry a bunch in.

For 10-20 rounds most people just end up using a feed tube. You can get them at Palmer's Pursuit Shop or CCI Phantom. Usually they don't go much longer than 15 rounds. They come with caps at the end that allow you to put paint in without it rolling out.

Sock Locks can fit into some feed necks or elbows. Modified versions of these are used at the end of most modern day feed tubes.

There are a lot of random brand pocket hoppers at local places around where I live. Dunham's or MC's if you've ever heard of those. That way you don't have to deal with ordering online. Just a thought...

Whats the point of using such a small hopper? you would need to refill a lot during a long game unless its for a spec gun that only need to be shot once in while.

Spyder MR1
14" Spyder VS 2 Piece Aero Twist works on each gun.
The only thing better than women is finding a few pods of good paintballs in your closet.
