I just got my VS1 recently and I. trying to get the stock feedneck off. Ive been at the dam thing to 2 days and it wont budge =(. I called my local paintball store and they said that the only way to get it off is take a wrench of plyer and go at it with all ive got..bu they also said that itll kill the feedneck for sure. Is there any other way to get the feedneck off without killing it? Or perhaps an easier way?

Strap wrench should do it without much, if any damage. Some heat will help but be sure to remove all other parts (i.e. bolt, detents, etc.) to prevent damaging them. I would avoid the heat and just use the strap wrench and good ol' elbow grease.

A lighter or small torch around the feedneck on the body so the body will expand a bit & loosen up around the feedneck.

If the body is completly stripped, you can boil some water; once it gets boiling take it off the heat and put the body in for a few minutes, letting it get hot...
that should loosen the adhesive and allow you to easily remove the neck....

i couldnt get it off either, i happened to have the feedneck on tight with hopper, i was actually trying screw off hopper, but it unscrewed the feedneck (more leverage got it off)
