My Reloader B2 into Warpless Warpfeed
 
My latest gun project came about when I got fed up with trying to use my old warpfeed on my gun. My fastback cocker is already heavy due to all of the stainless stuff I have on it and then adding the warpfeed made it heavier. I wouldn't have cared but the poor performance (sporadic shot detection even on the most sensitive setting) I was getting from it on this setup wasn't worth having the extra weight and batteries so I wanted to figure out something else.

In the past I had seen that paintballs could get shot out of a Reloader pretty far so I decided to use it to make it into it's own ReloaderBfeed. The one that I have is actually a Reloader B2 so I don't know if it would work with a regular ReloaderB because I don't know if you can change the settings like on this one. I figured my Halo wouldn't work because of the eyes in it and I'm using an E1 so I don't have any RF capabilities. So I used the B2 because of the sound activation and that you can turn off the tension detection of the drive cone which would let it push the balls through the hose.



Here are some pictures below documenting the build. I will still need to go back and clean up the layout if I get some new parts but I just did it with the stuff I had on hand that afternoon.

I used this 90 degree elbow which I cut down to that ridged part along with a 45 degree elbow to angle the flow in the right direction.

I have the Eblade set to factory fast right now and it's been shooting great. If you have any questions let me know but I just wanted to share this with you guys because I wasn't sure if it's been done like this before.

Curious, what is that acrylic/clear adapter for the hopper? Did you make that yourself?

Yeah I've had it for a while now. It was one of the few Doc had available at the time. It's still just polished raw. I would like to get polished up again and clear annodized.

That piece is what is left of a warp feed body. I'm still going to cut it down a little more and clean it up so it doesn't look so rough. I really didn't want to sacrifice the body but I still have 2 other warps, one of them never opened BNIB I got direct from Tom Kaye at an event. It was the only thing I could think of to mount it and have some adjustability without completely fabricating something.

I need to make or have made a warp feed gun bracket that is longer than the stock and maybe not as angled so that I have a little more room between the hopper and the gun.

Look at Luke's custom mounts. They mount a hair higher and he's got two placement options.

That's a nice mod. I've been toying with the idea of doing that myself. I want to do a block that doesn't require modification of the hopper, but it's nice to see another proof of concept. And your mounting methods give me ideas.

That's a very nice warped cocker....

So the loader doesn't really have much trouble pushing paint uphill? Seems like it was done rather well, nice job.
