How do you get the hopper in the paintball gun?

This all depends on the feedneck on the gun. That is, the circular part on top of the gun that connects the hopper to the marker. If it is clamping feedneck, simply release the clamp, push it down all the way and close the clamp appropriately. Others you may have to unscrew with an Alan key, and on the lower guns, just push it on their to the best of your ability. Though clamping feedneck is by far the best to have on a gun, due to the fact that it decreases the possibility of the hopper coming off.
