The only marker that doesn't are the SAR12 and the SR1, having a hopper option is just an intelligent business move.

A hopper adapter. Am I remembering correctly in saying that the SR1 does not have one?

The SSR12 and SR1 are different than most because they are marketed as sniper rifles rather than just mag fed options.

A proper winding spring feed comes down to design.
"fipping" a mag is just ridiculous. It may work but in some situtations you're just gonna end up with 10 rounds, eject nad load another mag and ditch the other 10.

Personal preference i suppose.

I think a curved stack would be great with one of the springs like in a SMG-60 (or a tape measure)

It's not the hopper .

I was unaware that making the first ever made in the USA full size bolt action shell feeding and shell extracting dedicated FS rifle and 1st to use real steel furniture parts was not an intelligent business move.

And there will be no hoppers on the other models.

I have full faith in FS and I will continue to build dedicated guns for it.

I don't need to straddle the fence.

I was going to make the T2 shoot both but that idea was put to rest.

the problem is that some people seem to have no problems with winding mags, and some seem to have problems with the last few balls not loading. i unfortunately fall into the second group. the number of times ive had a tpx or 8.1 mag feed improperly? zero.

I meant no offense, I wasn't saying that making the SR1 is a bad business move, I didn't talk about anything except for the hopper adapter. All I was saying is that it would be a bad move for Tiberius Arms to not include a hopper option on this marker because that would both cut out part of their market, but they have also included a hopper option on all of their other rifles so it would be a surprising change for them.

No offence taken.

I was just explaining the SR1 was purpose built.

I am tickled to death to see others getting on the bandwagon.

It means the FS has a better chance of survival and I believe we will see some really cool products in the future.

Paintball isn't changing it's just branching out.
