The Archon Tacamo hopper is designed to keep the paint feeding without using any motors. You can get them on ebay for about $7.00 with $3.78 for shipping. I've tested this hopper by running 600 rounds through it when I got it and today I shot a little over 1,000 rounds during an all day game and it works great. I am VERY impressed with the performance. These loaders work by using the blow back pressure going up the feed neck and the vibration caused by the markers recoil. Because of this they work best on inline blowback markers running on high pressure like Tippmanns and BTs. They may not work that great on stack tube blowbacks or low pressue markers. I use a stock mech trigger on my BT with a maximum ROF of about 6 BPS at most. I'm not sure if it could actually produce the 11 BPS it's advertised to feed but it works great for lower rates of fire. You still have to shake it every now and then but it's not bad. The lid snaps shut nice and tight and they are made out of thick durable plastic. I got mine from SO4C PAINTBALL. I know now days alot of people are into OMG I need more and more BPS !!! FASTER, FASTER, FASTER!!!! but for those of us that do fine with a low rate of fire this hopper is great. I recommend this hopper for anybody using a Tippmann or BT with a stock mech trigger using a low rate of fire.
