So one day I decide "hey, lets make this thing a little more fun." so I purchused a Vertical ASA for the marker, it came with a free expansion chamber so that was also cool. then I bought a 3.5 once Co2 tank replacing it within the spot of the expansion chamber. then after shooting all the air out of it I got a nice count of 120-130 shots, 10(ish) shots with decreasing velocity untill I could no longer fire. So as you might have guessed, im looking into a cheap way to grab a smaller hopper, well. a more compact loader within that 120-140 shot area.
just so you see the 98.
so, I have been thinking over time about All my options. ( if I forget some, tell me! )
Find a BE pocket hopper ( which are no-longer being sold to any of my local shops)- 30 paintballs
find a mini Hopper ( which, like the BE pockets...are no longer being sold) -50 paintballs
I dont know if there is 100 round count hoppers, well at least i'v never seen one.- 100 paintballs
Get a 20 round springfeed. - 20 paintballs
get a 15 round stick feed - 15 paintballs
purchuse a Cyclone for my 98, then throw a Tac cap on top - 30/40/50 paintballs.
purchuse cyclone and take Borg-Techs B.U.L.P. loader and use that. - depending on pods 30/50/100/140 rounds.
B.U.L.P. But without a cyclone. so im good for a ball stack of 4 before I "reload". cheaper but much less effective with 140 pods. - 30/50/100/140 paintballs
Q-loader, Last option I would take if possible, also the most expensive and tech orientated of all options - 100 paintballs
stick to a 200 round hopper - 200 paintballs.
im looking to basically lower the overall profile of my marker, and becuase my 3.5 will only shoot roughly 120 good shots 10 medium shots and 10 bads shots I dont want to have 60 paintballs extra floating around all day.
Note: my 98 as of right now, does not have the stock attatched. Or the front sight thing I use for my sling, nor the Expansion chamber or the drop forward or the ASA. there is a small tank instead.
And final question. does anybody have any cheap and slightly ghetto ways to do this with my own materials?
oh and for clarifycation. I dont usually limit myself as far as shooting goes. im not one to convince myself to only shoot 50 paintballs a round maximum. If someone needs cover or I need to pull that trigger like a crack addict runs laps. that trigger is getting pulled, no hesitiation.
