The new ones sold by Empire as a "multi-caliber hopper" are indeed the ones Simon redesigned.
They come with an insert, like the old ones, but the difference is that the hopper itself has no ridge to keep the insert in place.
You still have to use a screwdriver to disassemble the new ones to remove the insert, but once you do, you don't have to file the ridge down, as you did with the old ones. It's ready to use as soon as the insert funnel is taken out.
Very nice hopper, btw.
