How to make your Rotor Lid into a Rain Lid for your paintball hopper

If you’ve got a speedfeed, feedgate or quickfeed on your Dye Rotor, chances are, you’ve had to deal with the possibility of rain, dirt, dust or mud getting into your loader. Not so now! Simply mod your lid and you’ll have a slick, easily removable rain lid that doesn’t interfere with your existing speedfeed! It’s very quick to pop on and off in the event of rain or inclement weather!

Check out this Dye Rotor Loader:

This particular Dye Rotor is in a class of its own.  It is of the most radical innovation known to paintball loader technology, with mind blowing feed rates and reliability.  After reading this, you will be able to see why the Rotor is the number one choice for loader technology among top level players all over the world!

It’s Low Profile Design

The Rotor is probably one of the lightest 200-round loaders out there.  The technology in dye-precision-loaderthis thing allows for it to push balls straight down over a short distance.  This in turn, allows for a small loader size and shape and an extremely low profile!

“Tuff Molding”

Dye created this loader with what they call Tuff Molding.  When they tested the Rotor, they found that if it was built with the Tuff Molding, it could withstand a drop from a three-story building!  CRAZY!  It also has a water resistant coat.

The Constant Feed

This feature makes sure that the feed rate is over 50 balls per second – which is way past the pro level requirements.  The result is a smooth, consistent, rapid and dependable feed performance.

Rapid Reload

The Rapid Reload makes the reloading process super quick and easy.  There is a transparent locking lid, which allows for fast loading and a secure close.  With it being able to hold up to 200 balls, this is a 20% increase than that of other loaders.  Needless to say, this thing is awesome!

Toolless Maintenance

You read right – Tool-less Maintenance!  Meaning, the Rotor is easy to assemble and disassemble.  All you do is slide the locking tab and push a button and there you have it, basic cleaning and easy maintenance.

Other features include:

  • Sharkfin Jam Release Trigger!
  • BlackOps
  • And Adjustable Torque!

The Tippmann Project Salvo AR-15 Paintball Gun

Tippmann Project Salvo AR-15 Paintball Marker

Tippmann has once again produced a paintball gun meant for the diehard scenario players. The Tippmann Project Salvo paintball marker is part of the military armament paintball replicas. Using the shape and style of the AR-15, Tippmann used their expertise in producing durable and reliable markers to produce the Project Salvo.

The Project Salvo paintball gun has a number of features that will appeal to the scenario player. For example, the collapsible folding stock allows a player to choose the feel and look that they desire. The maker has four picatinny rails allowing you to upgraded and create the paintball gun you have always wanted. You can also upgrade this marker with an e-grip, custom response trigger, cyclone feeder and flat line barrel systems. When it comes to upgrading this marker you are pretty much only limited by your imagination.

There is at least one more reason why you need to add this paintball marker to your arsenal. Paintball players love it. This maker has great customer feedback. Players love that they can easily upgrade the parts. They rave over how easy it is to maintain. And they can’t seem to say enough nice things about the durability.

Tippmann Response Trigger (RT) Kit – X7

Tippmann X7 Response Trigger Kit Paintball Gun PartsThe reactive trigger kit uses gas from each cycle to push the trigger back forward against your finger. While it’s just about impossible to explain, you can attain a sweetspot in seconds (you’ll understand as soon as you pick up the gun), supercharging your Tippmann’s rate of fire to 15 balls per second or more! A simple, well-detailed installation is all that’s necessary, no batteries needed, and you’re good to go.

How To Bore Match Your Paintballs

This isn’t the end-all, be-all video all about underboring and overboring and precise matching, but if you want to know how to bore, or match, your paintballs to your barrel kit, insert kit, or sizer kit, this will show you how to properly do that!

Remember to keep in mind that temperature causes your paintballs to vary in size.  If it is warm out, your paint will expand – if it is cold out, of course your paint will be much smaller.  In this video Russell shows you an introduction to boring your paintballs to match up with your barrel.

Pick up your Pathogen 2 & iFIT Complete Barrel Kit with all the bore inserts you will need.  This particular kit includes bores in the following sizes


  • .685
  • .682
  • .679
  • .676
  • .673
  • .670

The Hustle Reload #43

In this week’s Hustle Reload, we take a ride with Russell before the work day begins.  During the trip, Russell talks about everything that happens to be on his mind… Also enjoy a not so cheesy show hosted by Tony where our contestants only have 2 minutes to pick the best setup for a weekend of paintball play!  Who do you think has the best setup?  Comment below!

Also, Erik talks about what o-ring might be giving you trouble on your Geo3.  Which, by the way, you need to get YOUR new Planet Eclipse Geo3.1 Paintball Gun before Christmas is upon us!


Smooth, quiet and utterly devastating. The Geo3.1 epitomizes everything that is great about a spool valve single tube paintball marker. That it also offers exceptional efficiency and the trademark Planet Eclipse virtues of bulletproof reliability and ease of maintenance make it a simply unbeatable package.

Now in its third generation, the Geo platform has gained huge popularity amongst tournament and woodsball players alike. Speedball players appreciate the way that the very small amount of barrel rise even during ramping allows them to stay on target longer even when firing single-handedly during rapid reloading. And the efficiency giving them the ability to carry enough paint for even the longest of matches. In the woods, the light weight of the Geo3.1 combines with its incredibly quiet sound signature to make it the perfect companion for those extended periods on the field and for taking those shots when you don’t want to give your position away.


Internally and externally the Geo3.1 utilizes the latest technologies developed by our engineers. The Electronics are fully adjustable via the on-board backlit LCD display and solenoid graphical user interface. Or if you prefer, with the optional ePortal kit you can connect the Geo3.1 to your laptop or home PC to adjust parameters, download latest versions of firmware or customize the graphics on the display. Mechanically, the Geo3.1 uses a Custom MAC solenoid valve system that drives the bolt mechanism and controls the filling of the firing chamber. Rather uniquely the speed of the bolt is externally planet-eclipse-geo3-paintball-gunadjustable via a dial on the trigger guard. Selecting a slower bolt speed reduces shot signature and recoil resulting in a soft, quiet shot; where a higher bolt speed will allow devastating rates of fire. The Geo3.1 offers both these options and an infinite range between.

What’s the difference between the two M-Series guns?

You’ve been asking, “What’s the difference between the two different M-Series guns?” In this latest YouTube clip from Dan at Hustle Paintball, you will find out all the differences you may need to know.  Plus, he takes it out on the field and demonstrates how the two guns shoot.

Milsig M-Series Elite Pro Paintball Marker

The MILSIG M-Series Elite is the newest release from MILSIG. Based on the M-Series Paradigm body it is more compact and lighter than its big brother. Like the Paradigm it uses MILSIG’s HEAT Core operating system for superior shot to shot consistency. The M-milsig-m-series-elite-pro-paintball-marker-blackSeries Elite PRO comes with an 11′ smooth bore barrel, rubber rail covers, flip up sights, and a shorter, open cut front shroud with polymer picatinny rails. The MILSIG M-Series Elite is of course First Strike capable like all M-Series markers. Available in Black or Desert Tan with black accent accessories, the M-Series Elite is the perfect combination of compact length, lightweight, and superior performance.


  • M-Series aluminum body
  • 1 inch outer diameter smooth bore ported barrel
  • CNC aluminum hand guard with 4 full length polymer rails
  • Rubber rail covers
  • Flip up sights
  • Front sling mount
  • Mobile Air Tank System (13 cu tank not included)
  • 10 round First Strike Squarehead magazine (1)
  • 20 round Squarehead paintball magazine (1)


  • Overall Length: 760mm/29.9 inches
  • Barrel Length: 275mm/10.8 inches
  • Hand Guard Length: 155mm/6.1 inches
  • Weight: 2.6 kilograms/5.73 lbs

The Milsig M-Series Paradigm Pro First Strike Marker

In 2009, MILSIG released a marker that exceeded the expectations of MILSIM Paintball fans everywhere. Realistic looking, solidly built, durable, and extremely accurate; this legendary marker was known as the Paradigm. MILSIG raises the bar even higher with the release of the 2012 Paradigm PRO. This completely new version of the Paradigm is lighter, more efficient, more accurate, and even more realistic than the original; a tour de force showcase of MILSIG’s innovative designs and exceptional craftsmanship.

Featuring MILSIG’s new High Efficiency Air Technology (HEAT) semi-automatic operating system, the new Paradigm PRO is 20% more efficient than the inline blowback model it replaces. Its internal pressure regulator, decreased operating pressure, and innovative MILSIG M-SERIES PARADIGM PRO FIRST STRIKE MARKERspool valve design provides consistent shot to shot performance needed for long distance accuracy.

The new built in Marksman Rifled Barrel has been specially configured to closely match the fin pattern of the FIRST STRIKE projectile. By increasing rotation on the projectile, both range and accuracy are drastically improved. The Rail Integrated System (RIS) and receiver body continue to be meticulously CNC machined from billets of aircraft grade aluminum. Steel brackets connect and reinforce all major stress points giving the Paradigm PRO that signature MILSIG real steel feel.

Realistic proportions. By removing the gap between the Magazine Well and the Trigger Guard, the Paradigm PRO is more compact and mimics the proportions of a 7.62mm Armalite variant. More compact, less weight. Weight drops from 3.15kg to 2.65kg (over 18% reduction). Length drops from 991mm to 850mm (over 16% reduction). Quick and easy marker maintenance. The HEAT Core assembly can be accessed from the marker by the removing two retainer pins, thus negating a complete tear down of the marker when cleaning and performing routine maintenance.

The new squared magazine head design allows the user to launch 10 rounds of FIRST STRIKE downrange as fast as he can pull the trigger. The Paradigm PRO also accepts the standard 20 round MILSIG paintball magazine. Backwards-compatible magazine. Owners of existing 20 round magazines can retrofit them for use with the Paradigm PRO with a magazine head conversion kit, a huge cost benefit for current owners of MILSIG markers.

How To Use Your Deadlywind Apex Adaptor

We have been waiting a while to show you guys the Deadlywind Fusion Apex2 Adapter, and now we can!


In this video, we show you how to use the Deadlywind Fusion Apex2 Adapter, which is super easy, not only on Deadlywind barrels, but also Shaft4 Eclipse barrels and more!  With this adapter, you don’t have to keep your Apex permanently attached to your barrel tip and can quickly and easily slide it on and off when you want to use it.  This is a very cool product and we are really excited to share it with you.

The Fusion from Deadlywind is a tool-less adapter for mounting an Apex2 tip onto the end deadlywind-reskin-apex2-carbon-fiber-coverof a Fibur, Whip Tip, or Null barrel. The tool-less quick clamping method of the Fusion compliments the Apex2 tool-less design. This is only the adapter. You will need the tip from an Apex2 barrel and either a Fibur or Null barrel to mount it to. The Null version includes a removable sizer ring to fit the smaller Null barrel. It is backwards compatible with the Fibur. The Fusion + Apex2 tip will add 3″ total length to the end of your barrel. So if you have a 12″ Fibur, this setup will make it 15″ long tip to tail. Combine with the Deadlywind Reskin for the ultimate Apex2 DW package.
