Buy one, they're cheaper, probably work better, and all that other stuff. They fit perfectly in 3/4" T's.

Just put a ball detent in there.
It will solve both problems.

Drill a TINY hole,
cut off some brissles off a toothbrush. Put them in the hole. Put some hotglue to hold them. They should go about 1/3 the way into the chamber max.

What you need is a bolt. A bolt is something that goes forward when you shoot to block the flow of air into the hopper. If you want this to be semi automatic go here: http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/gb-semi-t7899.html
He made one that's a little tricky to make.

If you don't mind caulking it, you could make one that you manual move back and forth to load the next paintball.

You need to stop air flow into the hopper so the paintballs don't go flying straight up which they will.

I think you could make this into a hopper one http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/small-a ... e-t12.html or you could makeit into a magazine.

its just something that is the size of your chamber, that is hollow that has a rod attached to it that allows it to slide back and forth and locks in both positions.

truth 3570. At first I tried to make my own pvc hopper. I got two 45 degree joints of 2" and a short piece of 2" pvc (approx 3" of it) I bored a hole about 3/4" into the pvc and made a joint to go down to the chamber. I put a screw cap on the one end of the 2" and endcap on the other end. This works pretty well whilst also using a bolt system. I get no jams either. It worrks, but I suggest you buy one! :lol: [/img]
