Was going through some old pics and came across these... It was a never produced foregrip loader for the Ts1/at85 that I always thought was cool.. With the advent of 3d Printing maybe one of you can use the idea and make something usable with it

I had actually been looking for those pictures for pretty much exactly that purpose. Word on the street is that someone (hint: it's me) is working on adding a magwell to the left half of the ATS magazine, and after that adding a magwell to the AT85 foregrip location.

I'll add this to the queue as well, since you found the pictures!

Can you make a gate or blocker to restrict the flow of paintballs to the mag unless you tilt up or a close gate to add to it. My loader always ends up jaming the mag and end up firing empties whilest the mag is overfilled maybe its just the way I'm playing but I don't even till the marker up anymore knowing it will probably get overfilled

Not to completely derail this thread, because it could be a great project. The big forward loader was a concept from YEARS back.

Ragu, can you pick your brand/type of paint at your field? I have discovered that "tournament grade" smaller diameter paint seems to jam and over fill the magazine. When I switch to a "lower grade" slightly bigger bore paint, my jamming issues went away.

I wasn't trying to derail I think it would be a good thing to add just to reduce the flow of paint just so the mag can process though it until its low enough to refill and not jam. Or maybe have it feed from the highest point with a blocker at the halfway point in the loader so you would have to tilt it up to reload. I think maybe the loader is feeding in balls while I'm moving, and no all I get is what they provide but it still gets all jamed up, i'm getting graffite paint next time so I'll see if that makes a difference. Anyways I think its a good project, how much did it have capacity wise anyways?

Here's a loader project from years back that I wished would've made it to production.

I never knew that huge loader had any electronics or mechanics. Interesting the internals would have used the chain system.

It was a prototype they (ATS) were working on back in the day. It was going to be pretty expensive and was ultimately killed off by the hopper magazine half which was cheaper, higher capacity, and less prone to failure.

A really cool idea, but probably more complex than was required.
