Like you, the feed cracked on the first one. Like, the first day I had it. I told Rick and he dropped another one in the mail in a couple of days.
I like the fact that it holds more than 50 rounds, but isn't too obtrusive and I especially like the feed on it. I keep it facing down, put the pod up to it, rotate to the right to fill, then back to the left when I'm done. I also like the clear back to see how much paint is in there.
