Q: What is the Qloader?

  • A: The Qloader is high performance clip-based paintball loading system. It uses 100 round spring-powered clips that are reloaded off the field.

Q: Where can I buy a Qloader?

  • A: Online at www.qloader.com or by calling 1.800.910.4522.

Q: How fast is the Qloader?

  • Pretty fast. The speed varies depending on the number of pre-winds applied to the spring and the configuration of the feed tube. With the maximum number of pre-winds (16) and no feed tube or elbow, the q-pod will empty a full 100 rounds in just over 1 second.

Q: Does the Qloader use batteries?

  • A: No, the Qloader is spring-powered.

Q: Will the Qloader feed past my detents?

  • A: No, a properly setup Qloader will not feed past your paintball-detents. This is because the q-pod feed geometry automatically increases feed pressure as a paintball begins to feed, and then decreases feed pressure after it is chambered.

Q: Will the Qloader mount to my marker?

  • A: Most likely. The Qloader was designed to retrofit onto most markers that do not have an integrated feed system. Markers with an integrated feed system may require some customization in order for the Qloader to work. Optional mounting brackets are available that will increase the number of ways a Qloader can be mounted to your marker.

Q: How many rounds of paint can a q-pod hold?

  • A: 100 rounds.

Q: Can you make q-pods that make more than 100 rounds of paint?

  • A: Yes, but it would be proportionately larger and heavier (which would cause other problems) so we do not intend to make them any larger for now.

Q: Do q-pods fit into standard harnesses and belts?

  • The q-pods fit snugly into some packs and belts and are a bit too large for others. We do know that the M-Pack made by Top-Stitch will fit q-pods nicely.

Shipping:

  • Qloader offers multiple free shipping promotions throughout the year. During these promotions, unless otherwise sated, the free shipping discounts only apply to the continental US.

Q: Why did you create the Qloader?

  • A: We believed that paintball would be more fun without a hopper on top of the marker because it was noisy, in the way, and inconsistent in its function. The idea of a clip-based loader was compelling. There were already reload pods, so why not make them into a clip and put it under the marker out of the way.

Q: Do I have to break the ball hook on my marker to mount my Qloader?

  • A: The Qloader is high performance clip-based paintball loading system. It uses 100 round spring-powered clips that are reloaded off the field.

  • If paintballs break in when a q-pod is disengaged

    • Adjust the feed tube length
    • Fix the feed valve
    • Use only fresh, good quality, and non-brittle paintballs.
  • If a q-pod will not feed paintballs

    • adjust the feed tube so that paintballs flow through it smoothly
    • check the q-pod for improper assembly
    • apply more pre-winds to the q-pod
    • check the q-pod for missing and/or broken parts
    • use only fresh, good quality, and non-brittle paintballs.
  • If paintballs break in your marker

    • make sure the paintball-detents in your marker are functioning properly
    • apply fewer pre-winds to the q-pods
    • pre-fill the feed tube with paintballs by hand before engaging a q-pod
    • use only fresh, good quality, and non-brittle paintballs.
  • If the reload socket will not wind properly

    • oil the triangular feature on the winder inside of the reload socket with a light oil.
  • If the feed tube pops out of the socket

    • clean the o-rings, socket and elbow
    • replace worn or damaged o-rings
