If you pump, why would you want a e-hopper?
I just use a gravity feed one on my cocker pump.

the only reason i can ever see you needing an e hopper is to keep it from not feeding..but just the slight movement from the pumping action would most often than not dislodge a clog... and just go buy a cheap like viewloader then... shouldn't be hitting more than 12 bps, and if you are..why use the pump?

Empire Reloader IIs work pretty well, they're sound activated so you really don't even notice them working. Revys are another good option since they work when paint isn't feeding which is pretty much the only time you need an electric hopper on a pump marker.

Some people have been able to add revy units to smaller sized hoppers like the sportshot as well.

revys work great if you have a problem with you hopper jamming too much. I recommend a 100 or 50 round hopper tho. most pumpers love to shoot the giant hoppers on top of peoples guns. its like shooting a blimp :P

Well I thought I had a pic of it somewhere, but I don't. What I did is take an old 9vt revvy and cut off the top (so it looked like just the fin with the electronics and the neck. Then I took a random 60rd hopper I had sitting around and then cut off the neck, and a slot to go onto the revvy part. Then using hot glue, or apoxy I attached a pod cap and then attached it to the revvy part. Before you put it together though, you will need to sand down the propeller a little bit. So anyway the finished product is a 60rd or so revvy.
