i HATE my gravity loader, it gets in the way and makes noise when i move. I thought about buying a qloader but they cost alot and i dont want to spend all the time or have the time needed to adjust the springs and what not. Could every one tell me what loaders they use when sniping? :laugh:

Sniping aside, all of your hopper style loaders will make noise as you move due to the balls bouncing around inside and they are all big and bulky with the exception of tac caps used on the Cyclone feeder. The only alternatives are a Qloader, a spring fed tube mag setup like on the longbow, or a marker that uses magazines like the 4th and 5th generation T68.

May I ask what marker it is you are using? It may help us be able to help you a little more.

It might help to line your hopper with felt or fabric.

make a stick feed? you dont really need an electro loader for an mr1. I alwyas used a gravity loader with my old MR1, but now i have both a Qloader, and a longbow setup. You might wanna look into 50 round hoppers.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the BE 40rd, Winchester 50rd, and VL 50rd hoppers.

I just use a tac cap and try to keep it full so it doesn't rattle. If your gun doesn't use a cyclone feeder than a stick feed is a good alternative.

He said he uses a Spyder MR1, which have a 45* feedneck that uses those stupid angled sleeves to attach a hopper.


You could buy one of these, which would not only hold you hopper on better, but give it a sligtly lower profile.

or

Then you could buy one of the smaller 50rd hoppers http://cgi.ebay.com/MICRO-PAINTBALL-HOPPER...1QQcmdZViewItem or you could just use ten round tubes http://cgi.ebay.com/10-Paintball-Pistol-St...1QQcmdZViewItem and put them directly in the clamping feedneck.

I tried the Qloader but like you said it is a hassle. Me personally I like my gravity hopper. But the longbow tubes are good except for the lack of ammo.

I love my Qloader...once you play with it a bit...it's no hassle at all.....specially if you have an agitated hopper to load it....
I have taken my pods apart and tinkered with them, cleaned em, learned how the spring works and how to fix or adjust it, and it's all good.....the ONLY thing I don't like about it is that the pods only hold 100 rds... If they could bump that up to 150...I'd be in heaven....but that's okay too..cause i'm just gonna buy some more pods and have them ready to go..

not really the purpose of a warp feed. with the length of the hose, you'd need a few 10 round tubes to get the balls to feed into the gun. A Qloader or stick feed is your best be if you're still using that Mr1, or a 50rd hopper, like Weigel and I suggested
EDIT: or you could add some lining to the inside of your hopper to quiet it down

I also have an MR1. I dont consider myself a full sniper but a marksman with it. I use several different loaders depending on the type of play.

I have a custom spring fed stick made from a cut PVC pipe and 90 degree elbow. Then I own a 50rd hopper for when I need for ammo without reloading.

I also took a ten round sniper tube or stock class tube, cut about half off and stuck it into the elbow the weapon comes with. it holds about 10 rounds including the ones in the chamber and elbow. Your are then able to use other stick feeds to reload it.

I am trying to think of a way to use the tubing from the Q-Loader that connects it to the marker, that bendable pipe. I will bring that either along the side of the marker or up ontop. Then be able to shove a ten round stick in there if its on the side or use something like a Longbow 20 round spring fed if i put it ontop and have that go down the barrel. My scope is on raised sight rails so I can see it with the mask on.

I also use only a 3.5oz Co2 tank and drilled a hole in the corner of the foregrip/mag to run the line through. It is run along the side of my marker and I attached my tank to my stock. I will show a picture of it in the Spyder thread next time I have it out and have enough time to.

your setup sounds pretty decent, but please, please, dont call your paintball marker a "weapon".

Stick feed FTW. Or get a clamping feedneck and use it to hold 10 round tubes.
