New Product for Right/Left feed guns from RTR

This just in from RTR, a new elbow that is designed to help you keep the hopper out of site on your Right/left feed guns:



Ever have a gun that looks awesome but the look of the common elbow sucks the life out of its beauty? Well, I give to you the RTR all aluminum elbow!

It's not just any elbow baby. Anodize it to match your gun but there is a twist!

The RTR elbow is angled to give you a much less visible hopper when shooting from a bunker.

Here are a few images of these being made. It's taken a long time because of life, and these are difficult to hold onto when machining because of their shape. So care needed to be taken when plotting each stage of machining. Not molded plastic here folks, these are very cool.




















The angle will bring your hopper to the center of your gun.

In the following images I tried my best to give you a good idea. But running around my back yard with a gun and a iPhone timer ticking limited my quality.

The top image I am trying to show the relationship of a loader on a traditional elbow. Pay no attention to the guns position as all I was doing was trying to get the loader parallel to the ground as if it was on a gun with a common elbow.

The second image I am trying to aim like normal showing how the hopper is one half the size showing from the bunker (in this case my tree) having less of a target for the opponent to see and shoot at. It's better than it looks. I really needed a helper while doing this.

And the third image is if you cant the gun into the bunker. This pretty much hides the entire loader yet still allows you to site down the gun and shoot


And here is an image that clearly shows the loaders position in relation to the gun. Center line.


And it looks spectacular on a DD68










To see if they are in stock or purchase go to RTR's website http://remembertheronin.com/elbows/

That's kinda neat - solid billet aluminum, so it's sturdier than most elbows, plus it's not your standard 45 degrees. The hopper is brought in at a tighter angle, and while it's not perfectly up and down, most hoppers should still feed well enough. I think I have exactly one gun that's not center-fed (and that's a JT ER2), but good to see that people are still experimenting with the gear.

Here's pics. Just got mine in, I really like it - it's way shorter than other elbows.

Would like to see a version of this without the additional angle, just a standard 45. The tilt just ruins it for me. especially for the left/right feed 100 rnd grav pump applications....
