Custom spring feed for th SA-17

The twisting of the feed tube plug is annoying and I wanted an easier quicker way to load. so I cut a hole in the tube and epoxied a pvc collar.

But unfortunately when the spring was compressed back it shot out the hole every time.lol so I added a spring guide that keeps it in the tube.

But of course that had to come out the back of the tube. so i drilled a hole.

Works good, and you don't have to turn the feed knob. just slide back pour in your paint and release.

Damn, ya beat me to it. Was planning on working on this tonight myself, although without the pvc collar. That's a pretty cool addition. I was hoping a pocket hopper would work well enough for me but alas, it doesn't keep up with double-taps and such so I need to go back to the springfeed which is too slow to reload stock.

On mine, its a reversible mod but it needs you to operate the feed knob, its still makes for some fast reloads.
