Gravity Hopper

How well would a gravity hopper work on the etna or mini if I was to buy one or the other. I don't have the money to buy a gun and hopper.

It will work because both guns have eyes, but it won't be the greatest solution.

I would suggest the next thing you save for to be an electronic hopper.

Have fun.

Simon nailed it

It would work but it wouldn't keep up with the rates of fire you would be putting out. You may also chop a bit more than you should.

Have you considered a used hopper? There's good deals to be found out there. My son picked up a V1 Prophecy here on PBN for $20 with bad shells, replaced the shells, and has a solid hopper dirt cheap. Going older, a Halo or Reloader B would work fine for you as well, both plentiful and cheap.

Buy used gun and a used hopper. You'll save some money to buy a desent 4500psi tank

you can try a dye/proto primo loader, it's a gravity hopper but with a small "shelf" inside to help keep paintballs from jamming in the funnel of the feedneck. They're only $15.

see how it works here:
