I just q loaded my e/bladed cocker.after trying out an egg,I had to go another direction.I have enough battery operated gadgets for my paintball thirst,so why not try this helical spring loader.I was impressed with the ease of instalation of the q loader.(heck even I did it)After reading the setup instructions 2 times,I decided it was time for tunning it,and seeing what it could do.I feel I got a steal on this from the Specialops store,as this thing will flat out RIP.On my Vengence,I mounted it under the barrel on the vertical regulator.This even seamed to help out with the balance on my Vengence.If I had it to do all over again,I'd invest the money in the 500 round system,as I can see long ropes of paint in the near future.

I've heard from others that getting a tune is a big pain,but I didnt have any problems with mine.Now after doing this upgrade,I'm ordering a airthrough T2W stock,and you have a qbow.Plans in the near future in milling down the reciever of one of my A5's to adapt the q-loader.I saw this done on the q loader web site,and since I'm a machinest,this should be no problem doing.I'll write a review on that project when completed.Qloader,a good investment,a simple design that works,and dosent come with batteries,it's spring loaded. :(

The q-loader is great..both for the looks you get when using it and as a great piece of gear. One thing I would like to recomend if you haven't actually used it on your marker...watch out for when you accidentally chop one on the loading socket thing. I accidentally did my first day out (I forget if I was taking a pod off or putting one one) either way if you do make sure to clean the shell out. I had a few problems with it jamming but once the shell was out it worked like a dream the rest of the day.

A very nice loader, saves money in batteries and is the fastest loader on the market. The only problem is the last few paintballs that aren't fed into the gun when you have used up a loader.

Say you had a Q-loader on a gun with a remote line. Wouldn't it feel really off balance because all the weight is under the barrel.

you dont have to put it under the barrel....you can put it basically anywhere with the CMS(custom mounting system) so that you can balance out the gun :blink:

It may seem a bit off balance, right now I have an Ion and I use a 68/4500 fiber wraped tank and it balances right around the grip with a full Q-Pod, so depending on if you had a stock and how much it weighs it could make it front heavy if under the barrel.

Yeah, I put mine under the ASA. It balances with air on gun perfectly, though I think it would be perfectly balanced there with a stock as well. Have had problems with reloading however, but nothing too major. Just remember that you can mount it almost anywhere on your gun, so finding a place that balances well shouldn't be too hard, because you can mount it almost anywhere, one of the parts I really like about the qloader.

I have had an unfortunate experience with my Q-Loader so far, hate to rain on the parade.

Due to mounting difficulties with my Mini Mag, it's been 2 weeks of tuning, but now I've finally got it working. But, it only works for about 10 minutes. It's really freaking hot here, and after about 15 minutes of the heat, the balls become a little squishy, nothing you'd notice in a hopper, but just enough that the Q-loader is constantly jamming up and thus rendering it useless. I've tried different paint, and I've tried mounting it differently, but basically my Q-loader ceases to function if you try to play with it. I still have hope, and I may try to keep my balls in the cooler from now on, but I'm kind of depressed about how cool it should be but isn't.

Instead of just "dealing" with it. Call Qloader and seek their advice. They very well may have an answer for you.

I actually talked to the owner of Q-Loader at length, and they messed with my gun at D-Day. But in the end all I got was: use the most expensive paintballs you can find, and then don't let them get hot.

I expected that would be a problem. I just think of how in really hot weather the spring in my zeus magazine squishes the paintballs. Times that by 100 and you got 100 balls that have two flat sides.

ALthough since we get very few blistering hot days around here I am looking into one to mount under either a JCS XKM-8 or a SIM-4 when I get one later this fall
SO I guess I am willing to take the chance to have such a low profiled gun.

I've mounted my qloader under the barrel of my ariakon sim 4, it does slightly off balance the gun becouse i use a remote line, but not enough that it realy makes a difference
