Feed block

Pro team powerfeed is that a replacement for a feed block? Does it work better? Can I just use a regular hopper with it?

Thanks!

1. Yes.
2. Depends (see below).
3. Yes.

I have one, but I haven't seen any tangible evidence of actual improvement over the stock feed block. I have always been critical of how poorly the balls line up in this "powerfeed". There is no way it functions in the same way as the Automag powerfeed as made by Airgun Designs. All the VM pro-feed really does is vent away excess blowback. If you are running the stock bolt that isn't a problem IMO. Maybe it will make a difference if you are using a bolt without front o-rings.

Its biggest advantage is that it lets you use a standard elbow, and that it centers the hopper over the gun. If you are one of those that likes to aim down the barrel, you are going to hate it, because it obstructs the view (the stock feedblock does this too, but sits lower directly over the top of the gun). If you like to aim down the side of the marker, it will make little difference.

Unfortunately, no. You will still need the fingers.
