Viewloader - Revolution (12 Volt) Reviews
Viewloader Revolution (12 Volt) What can I say, I've always owned a Revy 12v in my gear bag for the last 10 years I've played. They are gentle on paint because they are agitated, and not force fed. Great for my mech cockers!

Love my Revvi, got it on the cheap from a person that was quitting. Good old reliable has been on my 98C and Mini and has performed (but then again I dont go 12.5 ramp nor do I reach the 15BPS in semi). The hopper goes through batteries quick (maybe attributed to using dollar store batteries). Really reliable and uses an almost fail safe/ easy to trouble shoot system. Other than being out of production my gripe is that it still spins when the hopper is empty but this not a deal breaker for me. Highly recommend this hopper if you want to shoot low bps.

Never had a problem with the hopper, nice and simple. Flick a switch and it operates, flick it again and you're done. Doesn't quite do the 20 gagillion bps of other hoppers, but keeps up with most forms of play just fine, and for a fraction the price!

Viewloader Revolution (12 Volt) If you get one with the old shells (flexible), keep it and never let it go. The newer replacement shells are junk. Otherwise, if you're running a mech gun, the classic revolution is the way to go.

I love my Revvy ~ it's quiet, it lasts forever on 2 fresh batteries (I haven't changed my batteries in 6 months), and it works great on my mechanical and sniper cockers.

Sure it's not fast, it's not designed to be, but it will keep up with mechincal markers and pumps just fine.

Pros: Nice starter loader.
Cons: Outclassed nowadays, shells.
First loader i ever owned (yep, had this even before a shake n bake). Used it on a spyder e99.

For all intents & purposes, this is a great starter loader and a great rec loader as well. Keeps up with all the better starter guns like stock spyders, piranhas, etc and helps tone down gung-ho players when not on the airball field.

Shells suck, however. Mine were always chipping & cracking no matter how gentle i was with them, like merely running around with a full hopper stressed the neck too much. It's a sad day when you're high-tailing it & finally get a good position to shoot when your loader simply falls off your gun. Ended my day quick.

Hopefully the newer revvys have better shells.

Viewloader Revolution (12 Volt) Great loader for the price is if it fed consistently 12.5 I would use it every day.
