Ideas on filling an old B E 45 round hopper on the run
 
So I'm heading to my first pump only event in a couple of weeks and will be rocking a Brass Eagle Tigershark with the stock 45 round hopper with the small opening. I am trying to find an efficient way to reload on the run. I'm thinking loose paint one at time isn't going to cut it. Any suggestions?

10 round tubes? cigar tubes?

Drill the lid for the size of a tube, cut a tube down to 2 inches, put s phantom feedgste on the tube, jam it in there and epoxy it in. Cut the excess off that is inside. Epoxy the lid down.

Got that set up on one of mine.

(If you cant find a phantom feedgate, a standard tube cap would suffice)

Or the rubber end you put on metal chair legs

I have the stock cap for it. Just looking for a way to reload fast mid game. Ten round tubes might be an option.

Edit: I re-read Allersterns post and it makes more sense now. Kind of a speed feed if you will for ten round tubes.

Scope cap. They are basically the only hopper I run at this point and a flip open scope cap works great. My 10 year old daughter ran with one today on a phantom and had no issues reloading in a game.

I use this and ten round tubes:

It's just two zip ties.

These are my favorite hoppers because they feed well enough given their super slim profile.

ohhhhh! Those kind of BE hoppers. Was thinking like the GXG ones styled ones. Epoxy a feed gate on and call it s day.

Me likey! I'll try it and see how it goes. Can always switch back to stock if needed.
