While I'm not a 'sniper' at all, I am a pump player who has recently started playing with an SL-68 II. I don't care to use a 200 round hopper on it, so does anyone know where I can get a decent 45-50 round hopper anywhere?
I have never been shot by a player in a ghillie suit.

I think that the only one made so far is the Brass Eagle 50 round pocket hopper. I had one, and it held up well. It's clear, though, so plan on painting it or something.

Should be able to find them at some Walmarts and most paintball stores.

I think that they cost $30 for the marker, some paintballs, and the hopper.

More like $5 for just the hopper.

Again, just check with your local paintball dealership, and if they don't have one in stock they should be able to order you one easily.

I've got the marker, and I could swing a 200 round hopper if I needed to, what I really need to get my hands on is that stupid hopper adaptor. I'm using a loaner right now, and it looks like noone in the world carries the stupid things anymore.

shoulda asked this question in the pump section. we open class players use those pocket hoppers. i'd recommend the winchester hopper it holds 50 if u put a pod lid on it which is something thats pretty much required on it. another good one is the vl90 and the sport shot hopper those two hold 90-100 tho. here go to wevopaintball.com that is the only store you'll need for any pump goods.

Scroll down, Winchester 48 round hopper. Better design than the Brass Eagle one, better material.

Spend big and get the winchester 50 round hopper. I've heard nothing but good stuff about that hopper. Better yet, you can load it with either 10-round tubes or full 50-round pods. That, and they're grayish/black, not clear. :dodgy: They might cost you a little extra, and you might have to order from Wevo or Whitewolfairsmithing, but I've heard nothing but good news from 'em.

It's not a 50 round
But you could get the gravity-fed richochet

Quite possibly better than a small hopper.

You could also stick a ten round tube in your feedneck, though it looks awkward it reduces your visibility a ton as a pose to a 50 round hopper.

If you dont want that idea, I would not go with a brass eagle 50rounder: there are better brands to buy from(I just can't think of them right now)
