Yeah, a faster hopper is the only way to prevent chopping because chopping accurs when the hopper isn't feeding fast enough and a paintball isn't completely settled in the breech and the bolt strikes it.

Even though the Empire Reloader feeds ~14 BPS and the Imagine is capped at 14 BPS, you still got to incorporate the blowback factor. The Empire Reloader should be fine for you though.

That would be fin but if you plan on possibly upgrading to a faster gun than you should consider getting a faster hoper so that you will be well set.

Any marker can take eyes, it's just the problem of getting the eye holes driller and everything. I've seen Tippmanns and Spyders with eyes, but I personally think it just isn't worth it.
