Sorry about not updating this in a while, tried piping from the halo feed to the mag with 3/4 copper and it kept binding in it. Eventually it would push trough due to the spring tension but it wasn't pretty. Need to revisit with something different, I'm gonna try the black tubing people use for other types of feeds/box mags

I'm thinking of the same thing, except feed it from the top as I find its less likely to chop paint. I'm curious as to which hopper you decide to power this thing with...

When you say "binding it", do you mean that your bends are so tight that the copper was beginning to kink? If that was the issue, and if that black tubing is not available to you locally, Home Depot and Lowes sell what has been nicknamed in the electrical biz as "Smurf pipe". I can't remeber what the real name for it is; but it looks like small, corrugated drain tile in a bright blue color.
It can make some pretty tight bends, a lot moreso than any metal conduit.

I got my tubing for my boxmags from a broken air mattress pump oddly enough.
Its .72 ID and corugated so it can make 2in 90 deg. transitions without binding or colapsing in
I can spare a foot or 2 if needed for you,looks like youll only need a small bit

I got the piping to fit but the paint would just not move through it smoothly, I think it's a combination or the oversize of the pipe and the ridges in the seams catching the paint. I'll give the electrical conduit a shot I know exactly what your talking about.

My only concern with the box mag was that it has a sensor or something ontop of the mag for feeding the balls and no one from rap 4 could tell me(or they didnt want to tell me) how the sensor worked to activate the motor also i was thinking of clearnace issues between the mag relase and the side of the box mag, im sure its all fixable i just didnt have the money to buy a box mag to mess around with it

The sensor is a mic, and it's attached to wires that snake down through and plug into the main board. I think the most up-to-date kit has a sensitivity switch inline as well. It's all easy enough to remove and put in a different mag mount.
