Extreme Rage Sportshot Mod?

I've heard of sanding down the inside of these hoppers to make them feed better, but I can't find any details on it... The old Pumpenstein website where the guide was at isn't available anymore.

Does anybody have a guide or can give a detailed explanation/pictures for going about this?
I have one and I can't seem to use it without constant dry fires

if yours has the cone inside for 50cal. remove it and sand off the edges where the cone would sit with like 800g then 1000, and 2000 wet if your really that bored.

If your hopper really is the Extreme Rage version, (ie. the current version that doesn't say "Sportshot" in gray writing on the side) it already has the "sanding" mods incorporated into its design from the factory.

Even with modifications, small non-motorized hoppers just don't feed that consistently. No amount of modification or sanding is going to prevent you from having to shake the hopper once in a while.

Anyway, Pumpenstein's old article can be found here, though most of the images no longer work: http://www.mcarterbrown.com/forums/d...ed-better.html

I can agree with this statement as I just spent time sanding a brand new Sport Shot with "some" better results in feeding. Guess I'll look into a 50 round hopper if I get fed up with this one.

There is a reason why you see old pics with guns that have smoke stacks up to the clouds. In a non-force feed loader, higher the stack, more paint in a vertical position to be fed directly into the gun by gravity and greater change that a shot or movement will shuffle the paint enough to refill the stack. Personally, I use one of these things on my 50 round hoppers for the sole reason that I may require the extra quick shots when things get frisky.

Another thing to take into consideration is "the ball stack". When you install the the hopper on your gun just put a couple of paintballs in the feed neck and look at where the top ball is, you should have it so the ball is half way out of the stack. This leads to the "next" ball entering the stack without jamming against another ball.
