For the people like me that really like the GXG pocket hoppers. I figured out a way to mod them so that they feed with NO shaking needed.

I filled the nose with epoxy. Then built up epoxy on both sides of the feedneck to funnel paint down the feedneck. I also did the normal mod and sanded around the feedneck.

just got done modding my winchester yesterday

heres 3 shots to contribute to this

mind you, i use a CCM no-pro feedneck, so i trim my hoppers down as far as they can possibly go

one with the APP 50 rounder

one with the modded winchester

and one overlay so you can see how they stack up (literally)

You'll need to shake it. Just wait.

As for tiny feednecks, while I appreciate the advantage given by smaller gear, a taller feedneck will always feed better than a shorter one, particularly when it comes to gravity feed.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to a classy all-metal tube version that will go with my T2. I have a feeling it won't happen.

And Anyone tried the GxG 50 rounds pods on a related subject?

I've seen the pods used locally, but since I don't reload in-game I can't personally comment. They seem to work just fine.

I made the switch recently... last few weeks.

Yeah kinda. That's the old style, and while it works, it's not perfect. Ideally, I would want something that would allow me to remove my bolt pin as well.

You would need a right or left feed top tube or a more elevated sc tube.

Any idea if a GXG can take a hit from the front? Want to buy one but I don't want to have it break on me.

Do NOT buy one. They do not take the hit from the front well. If you plastic dip it, it might hold up. For $10 you can pick up a new sportshot hopper. It's worth it.

They seem to be inconcsistent with breakage. Some report first-hit failure, while others have had much better luck. Meanwhile, I don't think anyone has shot through a Winchester..?

Looks like i'm buying a Winchester then. They're listed on Ebay for around $14 including shipping if anybody is interested.

edit: Any opinions on APP 50 round?
