Mini Hopper Issue

Sup guys. Just got done playing today and i had one small complaint; my hopper seems to swivel freely. The Allen Key is tight on the grip; but the actual 'elbow' the hopper mounts onto spins in a full 360 degrees. Its not exactly ridiculous; i have to apply pressure to get the hopper to spin; but whenever i open the lid it spins the whole hopper. Any advice?

Put a couple drops of BLUE loctite on the threads of the feedneck.. Let it set. That will keep it from spinning. But you can always remove it if you have to. You can get it at any hardware store.

no sorry; its not the hopper thats spinning. it's the gun side, the black elbow that the hopper mates into is spinning.

Yup, like Biggs said, take that black piece off the marker (its called the feedneck btw) and put some BLUE loctite on there. The blue is important as it will allow you to still remove the feedneck.

Yeah it should not be loose. You just need to tighten it down more most likely, but the loc-tite will help as well.
