The hammer going full-auto probobly cycles at a rate of 40-45cps. That is faster then any hopper can reliably feed. Remember, with out eyes, the hopper has to feed every round, from first to last at that speed speed, which is impossible since the last few rounds in the stack will only feed at the speed of gravity.
Its one of those things. Its really easy to get the gun to fire f/a. Basicaly, make the slip-sear not slip. But slowing the hammer, and increasing the feed are 2 hurdles that have never really been done easily. Look how complicated the Tippmann F/A ended up being. Forcefeed hopper AND dual hydraulic shocks to slow the hammer... and it still was unreliable.
