Original View Loaders?

Anybody have a picture of one of the original ones?

I bought one out at Field Games here in SoCal at some p-ball "big game". Must have been around 88 or 89.

It was put together using rivets to hold the hard plastic shell together. The "view" portion was an unremoveable hard plexiglass circle glued onto the body of the loader.

I can't find mine but was curious to see it again to compare how far hopper tech has come.

Neat find. I wish I had a picture. I just picked up an old brand new WGP Ammo Box off of a friend that had no idea what he had. Nothing special, just makes the game a bit more nestalgic (not like I have alot of room to talk, I started in '98).

Pretty cool though.

I think mine may be second generation viewloader (the one in the back in the picture)...

Nice picture! Thank you very much!!

Yeah, the original one I had, had an entire window in the back not just the square slot like yours. Plus it was a hard shell and your version seems like it's already made out of the "softer" plastic like the WGP box loaders.

I think it only held maybe 70 painballs.

Plus nobody made a cover for it, so it kinda look ugly IMHO.
