New hopper, in case you love the primo but need more rails?!

I'm sure someone will find something to mount on it........

BASE - loader

Interesting...i'd like to see it side by side with other gravity hoppers just for comparison.

I stumbled across it in a UK based shop whilst browsing today, never heard of it or the company until now.

The only use I can see for that rail is to mount a camera to with at least a swinging base. Otherwise, looks like a cool loader.

What's the capacity on it? Couldn't find that on the website unless I'm blind

Double FYI for paintball rules there should be no "offer" of surrender, its either mandatory surrender at X distance when guy is behind you or no surrender and you get shot in the booty. "offer" of surrender makes for some ridiculous and dangerous john woo tactics.

Not sure on capacity, found they are partnered with virtue by the looks of it with the base brand being aimed at fields, they seem to be offering a mask, pack, pods or hopper as a free gift for sites as a way to drum up business.

Pbgateway has them for $12 as well.

I love the angles on it, when I sell off the rest of my gear I'm gonna grab one. I could go for a neat grav hopper for rec play, the Primo is just kinda meh looking.

This looks very similar to that .50 hopper that valken has. Rail and everything. I wonder if they are affiliated.

With the one rail being at a slant I think the only thing you could run would be a camera (gopro) on a swivel mount. A flashlight for night games might work. A laser sight/rangefinder definitely wouldn't, and that's the complete list of things I expect to see mounted on rails at milsim events.

I would love to see someone mount a foregrip on it though.
