Hopper question..please help

Okay I want to get this done by Saturday. I use an extreme rage 100 rd hopper on my KP. I just put a new feedneck on it, and the hopper seems to stick out incredibly high. Here's a picture:




I want to cut it down for a lower profile. Has anyone done this? What do y'all think would be the best way to go about doing this? Thanks.

If it doesn't fall out, don't worry about it. With gravity feed (and anything else, really), the longer the ball stack is, the better your hopper feeds.

Of course, if it really bothers you, a hacksaw or dremel and a little sandpaper will do it.

I cut about half the feed neck off, it works great. Other mods for this hopper:
1. Sand the lip on the inside of the hopper in the feed neck for better feeding.

Anything sharp enough. I trimmed the neck on my sportshot with a hacksaw, then sanded the jaggies smooth.

Personally I like how long it is, this way I know that I can put 5-6 balls out when using the AT, when OTB, or protecting my guy when see someone about to attempt to bunker my teammate.



Peace-
