Here's a copy of the letter I submitted to Ricochet About the G2K and the possibility of an A-5 version:

"You recently released a gravity feed version of your Ricochet line of hoppers and was wondering if I could suggest a version of this for the A-5. 

As you know, the cyclone feed system has a unique feed neck.  There is a huge demand out there for hopper alternatives since the stock hopper is a bit on the ugly side and early versions had a tendancy to break. 

I co-administrate the A-5 Owners Group website/forum, and we've had a couple members take matters into thier own hands, building custom A-5 Ricochet hoppers.  At the price that the gravity feed hoppers are at, I'm confident that you could sell many an A-5 Hopper expecially to the members of the Tippmann.com forum and the A-5OG forum...

check this out:
http://www.a5ownersgroup.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6185&a mp;SearchTerms=g2k or this

http://www.a5ownersgroup.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4472&a mp;SearchTerms=g2k

Though most of us wouldn't want the angled neck, a hopper that simply installs to the A-5 with a locking tab (unlike the APP hopper with no tab) would be great!"

Now, here's where it gets good.  Hit http://www.ricochet2k.com/Feedback.htm and tell them that you would be interested in an A-5G2K hopper.  Please don't copy and paste my letter, simply tell that that this would sell on the fastest selling paintball marker on the market today!

Take the Power back! It's time to Take this forum Back from the 1337 flamers, immature idiots and know-it-alls.

is the only point of this hopper for looks?
b/c the ricochet really doesn't do much.

if any of you have had a ricochet 2k or AK, the form of the hopper never really works.
If the ricochet design DOES work, then the paintball will ricochet in your face lol.

anyways, does this desing hold more paintballS?
what will the cost be and why would we want one?

Well if it hits off one side of the hopper it might go into your face, but if it hits the other side, it will bounce away from you.

I'm hoping that if enough people request this, they may take a look at the idea and maybe even release one...

I've also submitted a series of custom trigger mods to Steve at JCS.  He was actually interested in testing the ideas out and that may lead to adjustable aftermarket triggers for the A-5.

Keep it up, since the A-5 is the fastest selling marker on the market right now, maybe they'll see the light.

The G2K not only looks sweet, but it also reportedly holds a couple more paintballs and it's got that whole "bounce deflection design."

I think it would be a Great addition to the Aftermarket A-5 family.
