Sorry to disrupt the thread but I like the VL-200 because you can store a 3.5 oz tank inside it and it feeds paintballs nice

Vl 200s are the bomb.

Size wise barely a difference if you cut the neck down.

Yeah, for all the praise Primos and Winnys get, the vl-200 is still decent. The neck profile is almost identical to the Winny. vv0mp rocks the vl on his pumps.

I think I have a couple. I'm going to rock the old Sight Feeder and see how I like it and when Benji gets some more Geoff Boxes in I'll grab one of those.

You decide to use the VL2000 let me know, I believe I have a couple of spare battery doors.

9VDC VLs are may favorite motorized hopper for a pump gun. They spin just enough to keep the paint stacked and easy to rewire to be trigger activated so they only spin when you shoot negating any "noise issues" you may be concerned about. Also the guts are easily removed and transplanted onto other hoppers if you are into modding.

I found an old 9V with just enough juice to test it and it worked great. If you have a battery door you can spare I'd love to get it from you. I have a second 9V VL 2000 I swapped some 18V guts into and it works great so I have a 9V setup still that I can use for modding.

I have one that is very similar to the APP one but is made by Tippmann. I think it came from one of the SL-68II Bundles. I love it, it feeds significantly better than my APP 50 round hopper.

They look nearly identical. I have pod lid mods on both of them.
