Hopper Connector cracked....

today before i set out for paintball i noticed that my hopper was pretty loose so i grabbed my allen wrench and began tightening it...i wasn't even tightening it super hard either. anyway, the little piece that hooks on to your gun is now cracked at the screw, anyone know where to get a new one?

The elbow from a 98?

Either check out your shop, call tippmann and explain that it broke (they'll probably send a new one to you), or get the piece you need from tippmannparts.com.

Knew it was an elbow, but tippmanns have odd elbows so i didn't want to call it that...

I was just tightening it because my hopper was moving pretty easily. I didn't even tighten that hard, but it was cold so it might have played a factor in it snapping...lol, I don't know how I broke anything on a tippmann...

if your hoppers loose and your neck looks pretty tight, then get some tape and put it around your feedneck on your hopper as flat and tight as you can.

It was okay, i'm not very good though at least not against these guys (their all pretty decent). Alex seems to do pretty well actually but i don't know if its just his amazing A5. Your barrel chopped paint like a mother ****er, btw Oh well though. the place we played also had pretty dense vegatation = not cool
