Paintball hoppers are an important part of the overall design of a marker. They contain the paintballs, which are then fed (through a variety of means) into the chamber for firing. There are quite a few loaders available on the market, and at Paintball Mountain, we offer a wide selection from a number of different manufacturers.
Paintball loaders today have begun to incorporate electronic components that help to drive the springs and systems that feed the balls into the chamber. Faster, more accurate ball feeding is possible using these electronic hoppers. It's just as easy to use a standard, non-electronic hopper if you don't want to invest in one, but they are very popular amongst both competitors and the most enthusiastic paintballers.
Kingman and other manufacturers still offer standard hoppers that typically hold 200 rounds or so. They rely simply on gravity to move balls into the chamber, but their drawback is the potential to jam the gun or even misfire because of a lack of a ball. This lack of dependability is one of the primary reasons people upgrade.
In addition to the hoppers, we have a great selection of quick load tubes to keep you from fumbling for a reload. They can be stored in special belt packs, and can load your hopper in a fraction of the time it would take without one. There's no longer a need for clumsy reloading. Paintball Mountain has all of the hoppers and quick loader tubes you need.
