No putting a hopper on a marker is not the same as not being able to shoot 260 out the box. when rounds don't feed right barrels won't fit sounds like more trouble than its worth.
All I'm Saying is I'd rather pay a slightly higher price for something that works right out the box and enjoy it.

The best marker is the one I use.
I learned everything I need to know about how to fix and run a successful paintball venture from the Internet.
