    I have a Q-Loader A5 and its great. The loader is super faster (faster than my virtue egrip). One of the earlier posts is right – once you go QLoader there is no going back as you need to grind off part of the reciever. I was smart and bought mine from QL already done for me. The new QL parts are more durable than mine (5 years old). Make sure to really learn the rewind of the springs and the care of the QL system otherwise it can be a pain in the ***. Make sure to get at least 4 QPods or more because they only hold 100 rounds.

    One last thing is that the reloading of the pods really sucks with the stock Silo. What I did was bought a cheap E-hopper and hooked that up to the reload socket – WAYYYY better and faster. If you use the Silo it is a pain because you put it over your shoulder and have to shake it as your fill and have to wait for the line to catch up with QPod, plus doing 4 QPods between games really sucks and your friends will not want to help as it is a pain in the arse.

    I just bought my 500 rnd q-loader system for my A-5 and I am absolutely amazed. My first impression of ancient innovations company was very positive because everything came in nice neat packaging and when I felt all the parts, they seemed to be very solid.

    The setup of the system however seemed intimidating after looking over the instructions. i found that only in the A-5 version’s manual, it lacked important pictures so it took some time to figure out the different pieces and how to mount them. after a while though i figured out how to assemble it and the finished product was astounding. While the change is irreversible because you have to snap off the guide pins and ball latch on the right receiver where the cyclone feed goes, you most likely won’t want to change it back any ways.

    I tried out my q-loader for the first time on saturday and I soon realized that its extremely time consuming and rather risky to load the pods. I have someone help me in order to shake the silo while i slowly cranked the pod prewinder and when i took off the pod the hose fell out as well as a small detent in the crank. this process repeated a few times and after 10 to 15 minutes, i was ready to play. I think these problems can be solved by taping of gluing the hose to the crank so the detent or hose don’t fall off.

    when the game started though, i realized those few minutes of struggle were well worth it when i had absolutely zero misfeeds and kick @$$ reloads. There was very little profile present when i stuck my head out form a bunker and i had 100% clutter free sights. While the thought of only 100 shots seems intimidating, it’s hardly a problem unless you throw down a large amount of paint.

    I have heard that the pods are hard to fit in pod packs but my sabre vest works perfect for them and the pods are actually slightly smaller than Dye Lock Lid Pods. You also have to be careful with the pods because at $20 a pod, you don’t want to lose or break one (even though i have dropped a couple, they haven’t broken)

    Conclusion: My final thoughts on this product are that the Q-loader is perfect for a sniper and suitable for almost any other position after you get used to loading the multiple pods that you should buy ; ) *wink wink
