I got a 1918 Browning loader yesterday, and I'm really facinated by how it works. The one I got won't let the rounds fall down the chute very well. I tried polishing the rails, but the laquer on the 8mm Romanian ammo seems to be the problem. This is taking all the fun out of the process, so I was wondering if anyone has come up with a hopper, similar to the one on the 1928 version. It wouldn't have to be anything fancy, just something that you could drop a bunch of rounds into, and start cranking. I know someone out there has a easy fix for this fantastic loader.
