get a pod, cut it in half and chop off the bottom to put back on the top half and cut out a pvc pipe sized hole somewhere in the middle of that and stick the pvc pipe there then use that. works wonders, and if you put a little metal rod about 1.5" on top of where the hopper feedneck starts, it prevents and jams.

or get a primo and chop it and use the anti feed shelf inside it as the top of the hopper, then just cover the rest up.

primos kick ***. period.

I've never had a Winchester break and I've taken quite a few hopper hits. I'd stick with what you know works. Plus you can mod the lid very easily.

I've done tests with the APP 50 but never actually played a game with it. I didn't like the way it fed.

Done, finished a prototype. Holds 61 balls, extremely strong shell, feeds like a champ. Very happy. Pictures tomorrow and a detailed guide if you want to try.

Made it out of an old pod and hopper feedneck, actually works surprisingly well. Will attempt it again once I buy a locklid, should be a pretty sweet custom hopper.

winchester i have fed perfectly, though it broke on the first hopper hit it received.. got shot right in the nose and it opened up a split on one side. hopefully a lil glue is all it needs

its one of the older grey winchesters

maybe i just happened to get one that had a weakness in the mold

I just picked up a winchester. I used tape around the feedneck with two layers of electrical tape. And tryed to tighten my clamping feed neck all the way down. Still wiggled a little to much for my liking. So i just simply taped the whole thing from the feed neck onto the clamping feed neck. Works great and looks good being the is black.

That's the ZAP version, actually. I have no doubt that the plastic formula changed a bit, even if they used the same mold.

I love my brass eagle 50 found. The only complaint I have is that it's super shake N bake. Does anyone know if the winchester is worth upgrading to?

I can vouche for PbGateways adapter in the stock CCM feednecks. They really do make the Winchester that much better. However they didn't come with instructions, but I plan to make a "How to" around Jan 22nd when I go home.

No love to the 10 rounders? Lot of AutoMags around here are using a horizontal 10 round tube that plugs in a port on the breech. It was okay but I didn't like have to constantly tilt my bolt action down to load the next round. I bought a PT Xtreme tube complete with spring, pins and cap and made a couple brackets to mount horizontal across the top of the gun. Now I can chamber at any angle any time and never have to tilt or shake the gun. It also drops my front and side profile dramatically.

Well Tempted....its a pump loader/hopper thread. And a 10 round tube can't be considered a loader/hopper.

I'm not hating on the 10 rounders out there. I have a phantom myself and love the damn thing.

By Sunday night I should be creating a "How to" on modding Winchesters.

Try again dude a 10 round tube still loads the paintball into your marker so it is a loader.

Just thought I would mention a quick tip I use on my Winchesters.

Instead of using electrical tape to increase the diameter of the hopper neck I use fabric tape.
Athletic tape or the hockey grip tape many players use on grips and regs work the best.
The tape tends to not be effected by heat and the oils from the paint do not seem to break down the adhesive as fast as electrical tape.
Another plus is the tape will compress a bit when clamping feeds are tightened.

Happy hunting folks!

Well Trilogy252....A 10 round tube isn't considered a hopper. It might be considered a loader, due to the fact that it can be crammed into the feedneck and feedtubes. But in the paintball community it isn't an acceptable form of a loader, simply a method in transporting paintballs until you need to reload. Loader is a term for a hopper that came later in the sport. Yes it does load balls, but its a ****ING TUBE!

Plus I can count on one hand the amount of mods most make to a tube.


Not hating on the 10 round guys. I am one myself, but this is a thread for modding hoppers.

By definition, that would make it a loader. Y'know... since it loads.
