Gearheadz Paintball Feed Adapter for Spring-Feeds

We heard from some customers that they loved their Empire Snipers... if only they could use a classic feed and do away with the stock-class spring feed. Our owner and machinist sat down and put together a feed adapter that does just that - making it so that you can play and reload with a simple 10 round tube.

We quickly took the concept a step farther and created a second adapter that installs with a CCI Phantom feed tube (either 10 round or 15 round) to make the Empire markers even more intuitive and familiar to the user.

Now you can simply remove the spring-feed tube from the feedneck, install the adapter (or adapter plus CCI feed tube) and instantly get back to the rock'n'cock style you love. Reloading is a snap without having to turn any knobs or pull back springs.

Compatible with:

Empire Sniper
BT SA-17 Pistol
Empire Trracer (with BT SA-17 spring feed system)
BT TM7
BT TM15


Gearheadz Paintball Feed Adapter - YouTube

Just an FYI, we will be running the MCB special through the end of December only. So spread the word!

Great idea for a product! If I owned a Sniper I'd be all over this.

I agree. Nice idea! Can you make a first strike mag system for the SA-17?!?!?

The part release was also picked up by Catshack Reports this week: Gearheadz releases new feed adapter. We love Tomcat!

@Manning - I'll let GHPBOwner field that one. We have been working on a first strike mod for TiPX, but I don't think we've started tinkering with the SA-17 yet.

@Manning, it is actually something we've talked about but isn't in our current product roadmap.

I love my 17. It's got the FS ready breach, so you just need to come up with a mag system that attaches to the rail. I'd love to get my hands on one!
