How do I use a k'nex gun hopper? Answered

I know this might sound stupid but I've never figured out how to use one.


well this is basically how a hopper works. it is located on the top of the gun above the breach or the bullet reciever. the hopper is a magazine that is on the top of the gun rather than the bottom. first you load the hopper with the bullets that you want the gun to shoot. due to gravity, the bullets fall down into the breach or reciever one by one as the previous one is fired. it is really simple because all it is, is an upside down magazine. each of the bullets are dropped into the breach and fired accordingly. hoppers are most of the time a little more reliable than mags for several reasons. one of which is that gravity does the loading work for you, so you don't need rubber bands. another is that the bullets aren't being forced into eachother, so there is less friction between the bullets. i hope this helps! :)

you know what would be funny? if you got the best answer for this :P lol

lol, but i think this guy is not on this site anymore :(

yea, it gets really annoying when a pwerson posts a question, you post a good answer, and then you find out that person left the site -_-

Thats happened to me before as I said stupidity.........

i can't even tell you how many times that's happened to me! i mean like a million times!!!!!!! it's sooo annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It happened to you "millions" of times and it happened to me twice................lol

yea, i hate it when that happens -_-

I hate when a talented k'nexer posts something really good and then leaves!

ok, sorry for saying those things down there. i thought youd left the site.

A hopper is basically a mag that loads from the top. Make sure your hopper has low friction, so it doesnt need a pusher. A good example of a hopper would be Crestind's AST rifle, or the hopper on Perfect Duck's Red Impact.

what kind of hopper are you talking about?
