Hello everybody

Just one question: do I need anything special to attach an Empire B reloader to my left feed Blazer, like an elbow or so; or will it work just fine?

A basic 45 degree elbow will work. Palmer's makes a really nice tightening metal one, but they're really expensive. A simple plastic one will do just fine.

Sir Brass uses one on his Blazer with no problems. I strongly recommend a Palmers Clamping Elbow. The Reloader B is unusually heavy and the weight will cause plastic elbows to break even faster than normal. In my experience, a plastic elbow is really only good for 1 long day of play. When you realize that, it only takes about 12 uses before the Palmers elbow pays for itself.

The 45 degree elbows here would work, but you're going to want to buy half a dozen at least to get you through the summer, especially since Reloader B's are kinda heavy.

I'm not familiar with the one from Palmer's, but if it's a metal elbow, it's gonna be worth it to invest in an elbow that's not gonna break under any reasonable conditions.

I would suggest the Palmers elbow but if you're going cheap then get an atomic elbow. Its the best plastic elbow

Plastic Elbows arent going to break unless your really hard on them...

I have been using one on my cocker for the past year and never had a problem and im a very aggresive player...

Not saying you shouldnt get the palmers but plastic elbow wont break everytime you use it.

Peace,

Ouch! If this is it, then yeah, those metal elbows aren't cheap! If you can't afford that right now, you might check your local shop(s) and they'll likely have the plastic elbows. It would beat buying a $4.50 elbow and paying $6 shipping for it.

Yeah, if they don't break for you, than you might be better off sticking with the plastic elbows. But if the plastic ones break a lot for you, than you should just get the palmers one, because it would end up being cheaper eventually, like WW said.

The fixed plastic elbows won't crack like the ones with screws on them. They are made out of a more malleable plastic. Fields often carry these for their rentals and may sell them to you for a couple dollars. They're generally made a little tight so you may have to stand them down to work, but once you get a nice fit they work excellently and look very clean.
