I just made a spring feed that can hold 9rounds. Its made out of PVC pipe and has a bolt made out of a marker cap with a screw in it. The spring you'll never guess where I found it. I took a binder off a note book!! I'll send pics if my computer will let me its not guaranteed. This spring feed is awesome but I would like some suggestions on how to adapt it on a x7 (without permanently altering the marker).

How to mount a Mag Tube on an X7 without modding the Marker.

I have the answer, but it requires Permanent Removal of the X7's Cyclone by snapping off the Feed Arm on the Right Body of the X7 or by another X7 Right Body Half and snap off the Feed Arm.

Other than that, get a Tac Cap for your X7.

What do you know. Let me know if this works and I'll send more pics.



As you can see I used two separate pipe sections so I could maintenance it (if I ever use it). One pipe section holds the spring in when coked and the other section has the grove, and locking notch, and feed hole carved out. The spring is that of a note book binder. I made the bolt out of a marker cap that fit snug in the spring, I put a screw in the marker cap so that the tip barley went through the other side, Then I put a few layers of tape around the front of the cap so it fit the pipe well. I filled the cap with a piece of a rope so the paint-balls wouldn't get wedged. I'm planing on replacing the tape that is holding the pipe sections together with shoo goo because it will look better and can still be taken apart. If you look carefully you can see the feed hole on the opposite side.

Nothing is permanent if you have some JB Weld! B)

J&B Weld doesnt hold very well when used sparringly.

Thank you for uploading my pic Cecar. This spring feed is what happens when one is idle. I'll be attempting to make a trip mine next.

I think you have actually solved my issue for the spring feed I am making to mount on an AutoMag for a pistol. I will have to try a note book spring. Did you have to cut it? If not, is it only good for 9 balls?

I've decided to let my cousin rig it to his 98. It will be a lot easier.

I decided to go with a pre-manufactured spring feed:

They only cost like $20
