Homemade stick feeds?
Does anyone know how to, what parts I would need, or if there is a thread about it? I'm NOT talking about the rock n cock ones, the ones I'm talking about are the feeds that sit at a 45 degree angle so the balls fall right in. I'd really like to challenge myself, and move up from my 50 round hopper that I've been using on my etek. [Yes, I know I'm crazy for using a stick feed on a speedball gun...]

Titus has feed gates. I could never find the "sock keepers" people mentioned.

If you make your own feed gate holder, leave a little room for the ears to fold in, but try to keep a smaller bore below that to fit a 10 round tube, it makes a nice fit if you need to leave the tube hanging. If you don't want to leave the tube hanging all of the time, make sure you have room for 10 balls, the gate ears, and a few extra balls (so that you don't have to be empty to reload, aka "tactical reload" )
You know, very-old school includes 20-30 round stick feeds. I used to have a paintball tournament shirt with an image of a player with a 20 round stick feed.
some things are stickier than others
