Never seen this... first off it looks like you'll need a cyclone feed. Can you use a cyclone on a Mag?

NM, looks like it could be used w/o cyclone... Even so, in my opinion I'd go with the tried and true, even if it requires a 9 volt.

yeah I'm sorry but this looks like a terrible idea, it requires you to use more air (making your gun even less efficient) would be incredibly hard on paint (just look at the animation and how hard it smacks paint around) and this would require serious milling to work on a Mag.

Mags are blow-forward spools, and is self contained very well in a tight little package, this system appears to only work on blow-backs and cockers, which leads me to assume that in order for it to work, you have to use air coming from the power tube (like the Tippmann RT, and cyclone does) and it functions everytime the bolt is 'blown back' and caught on the sear. Since mags are blow-forward, and not blow-back markers you would have to somehow tap directly into the mag valve (which is a terrible idea and great way to void the warrenty) and hope that the gun continues to fire afterwards, instead of just shooting enough air to blow out the line of that hopper every time it was fired. (especially if you are trying to RT the mag with 1000PSI)

so in a nut-shell, no it won't work, go pick yourself up an archon hopper if you have to have it be mech, or go with an electro hopper as Wimpy suggested

Bottom line: It won't work.

Explanation: It requires an air source from your marker that activates on every shot. The Mag can not provide this. Thus, it won't work.

Don't be all Amish about your hopper use a battery or two.

One thing that I have learned. Hoppers need batterys. No questoin. Qloader, though it was good and worked well, not my style. This thing is a piece of crap. The cyclone, I liked, but I still prefer a Revvy. You can buy something like a revvy or go all out and get a magna. Your choice.

With all the blowback in a mag it should be fairly easy to tap a body for a fitting...

Dunno how well it would work
