Empire Reloader

Does anyone have any experience with these loaders? I'm looking around for a possible alternative for the Revy, as none of my other loaders fit into a press feed.

From what I understand, it is an agitated feed loader. Hopefully it would be more like a Revy, rather than a Quantum.

Does anyone know what it's like?

I have had no issues with mine. I lent mine out to Oldschool last weekend for Castle and he can chime in, but I know for a fact the even he did not report any issues in using it.

If Mr. no batteries allowed can handle it, I'm sure you'll be fine with it.

They work great, same as a halo, and the sound activation haven't fail yet.

Not as easy to service as a rotor, but hey, for $30 to $40 bucks each, you can't complain.

the reloader is a solid loader for the price.

I now have a Rotor, but before that I only used the Empire Reloader and Reloader B.
Loved the sound activation, which I found less intrusive than loaders that constantly spin. The only weakness/issues I ever had was the potential to break the somewhat weak slide area for the battery door panel. I cracked a couple of those by not being careful and forcing the door closed. Just be careful and press the batteries down as you slide the cover and you should be fine. Great loaders for the $$.

Keep in mind there's a couple different "Empire Reloaders."

Reloader was a sound-activated revvy clone. They're fairly rare and were also sold as a more common conversion kit.

Reloader B was a Halo-B with a sound-activated board. It was the fastest loader on the market when released.

Reloader II was an "upgrade" of the original Reloader that still worked like a sound-activated Revvy clone but doesn't look like a revvy. The shell is cool looking but far too fragile.

ive used a halo b, and a bachman, multiple empires, rotors, proph etc. for the price and the amount of customization you can do a empire reloader b is the way to go, buy one with a broken shell for like 10 bucks, go on ebay buy a hybrid suicide shell for 16 bucks and you come out with a awesome hopper.

Not sure how you feel about them, but I love my Vlocity to death as a loader. See no reason in selling/replacing it till it is absolutely dead and rotors are down in price.

Mine is collecting dust even after I put a Gangstar chip and tension spring in it. The problem with the Vlocity for me, is the location of the battery door and the long obtrusive screw which holds it in place. I routinely took hopper shots in that location, oh and tear down cleanup took forever. Rotor is what I will stick with, for now.

I have one, and really like it. I don't really like the Empire shell, it's about like the newer revi shells. Mine were falling apart by the time I got it so I threw it into the older pre-BE shells. Unfortunately I had to dremel out a small section inside to get it to fit but that wasn't much of an issue. Only issue I have with it is that it's loud as hell.
