So the Ricochet AK UV is pretty much the same gun like the Ricochet AK only made especially for “glow in the dark” paintballs. It’s the same situation as the Empire Reloader B and the Reloader B Night Loader, just this time the guns differ a little it of each other. Don’t get me wrong, this is the same hopper, the only difference with the normal AK version is that it lacks the agitator. The thing works great and makes those night games even more interesting. Here’s what the manufacturer has to say about it:
“A chrome plated hopper with Ultra Violet LEDs inside to energize Glow-In-The-Dark paintballs. The LED apparatus takes the place of the agitator. There is no agitator in this hopper. Uses one 9V battery to power the LEDs.”
If you like the Ricochet AK as a hopper and are a night games fan, you’ll be charmed by the AK UV. Sure it possesses not only the good things, but also the bad ones, but really is something that deserves at least trying. You can get if for about $40 which is not that bad at all. Keep in mind that there are not too many loaders for night games on the market right now. And I’m sure not too many people can afford something like the Empire Night Loader that costs around $170. In cases like that the Ricochet AK UV can be exactly what you need.
