Make GxG feed better

Tired of having to shake you P.O.S. GxG hopper just to feed balls. I got a tip on how to do this from eudaman.

I did something similar to him because I didn't have JB weld. I took a plug for your outlets in your house and cut off the 2 prongs that go in the socket. I drilled a hole in the middle of that and then put a screw through that. Then drilled a hole in the front of the hopper and threaded the screw through that. The screw sticks out of the hopper but I filed it down so it doesn't have a point to it. Also, I have a wristband that goes over it.

JB weld is heavy, it's a simple solution though. Perhaps some sort of moldable epoxy would be a better choice.

Perhaps a few seconds from a torch to soften it then flattening the plastic before it cools off?

My friend bought one of these unfortunate hoppers, I'll pass the info to him.

i was gearing up to write how to do what i did again, but the OP quoted me, so i might as well show a pic. yes it is heavier as i stated, but probably as much as 15 paintballs. and since the weight is only slightly forward center of the feedneck all you weight weenies wont get your shot thrown off. the material i used is like the mighty mend-it/putty stuff that you have to knead to activate the chemical reaction for it to harden, but it is sold under the JB Weld product line. its easier to mold since its a putty then some epoxys that are messier and have a longer set-up time. since the interior of the hopper is smooth, it didnt set up that great and fell out after it hardened, but a couple of dabs of super glue locked it in. in the pic you can see its concave shape so that the balls feed into the feedneck. enjoy



best advice, get a winnie. alot of people will swear by what they only have. Well I have a revi, 3 sportshots, 4 winnies, 2 BEs, a 40 round BE ammo box and 1 GXG. the only reason i keep the GXG around is it sits at my homebrew chrono station just incase if i forget my hopper upstairs.

Or just get the Winchester pocket hopper. Mine works perfectly.

Sanding it/roughing it up would be good to make it stick better. :]
