need hopper mod help, Doneish video added

i have this little pistol that shoots .40 cal blowgun paintballs. I have put a spyder rocking trigger on it. Now its insane. i get like 70 shots from a 12 gram and need a loader to keep up if possible. the ideas i had were to get a blowgun and mod it to function like a springfeed. this would have very limited paint for such a fast trigger. Where could i get a spring for that? would it provide the needed feed rate? Other thought was to mod a Kingman .50 Rapid E-Loader. now i need a way to make the ID smaller in the raceway and perhaps shim the paddles or what have you, i havent actualy seen the design of this hopper but ill need a way to prevent binding. A chop in this gun would be a nightmare on the field. i think a pistol cleaning swab might do as a squeegee but id rather avoid it. Thanks in advance
*EDIT i added pictures so you can see the problem with feeding this. ill need to funnel them in. this is a .68 setup with a few mods to make it .40
EDIT* video added

almost no modding needed for the 50 cal loader other then the feedneck will be a tad large its simply a mini pinokio or fasta

so is that a standard 68 caliber feedneck, overtop of a .40 cal hole? I would think a funnel of some kind would be needed just to reliably feed into the gun.

correct. it is functional for the mech trigger and a little 45 rd hopper that came with it,holds maybe 80-90 of the .40 cal rounds but it already has a slimmer "funneled" feedneck. I understand that this isnt worth the time per se but you know, just for giggles and its fun for me. i was thinking maybe a piece of blowgun or pvc to insert into the feedneck making a "false" feedneck inside the .68 existing one. i will either need to funnel inside the hopper to meet up with the extended smaller feedneck or make a funnel system inside the metal feedneck of the gun itsself. Any ideas on making the funnel? ill take this neck off and see if inspiration strikes and maybe bypass the old neck entirely

Actually... A funnel. Take a ball and feed neck to the store. Find a funnel that the ball falls through nicely with a neck that can be cut down to the right length to fit the feed neck. Then a standard agitated hopper should be fine

i came up with the same at work today. i was trying to think "what will funnel these balls" and the obvious choice may be the best one. A blowgun mouth piece crossed my mind but i dont think the funnel will be deep enough. ill try and get to the store over the weekend and ill let you know what i come up with. i hope its as simple as it sounds. i doubt these hard little balls will break on anything but mask/gun/hopper but we all know thats where most of the hits will happen. if i can get 1 kill with it, ill smile all day.
