Nope, the VS markers use Ion threaded feednecks.

and to get the feedneck off use a strap wrench and heat. If you use anything with metal teeth you will mar the surface of the feedneck.

Unless you don't care or want the old one. Then stick the feedneck in a vise and twist it off.

if that doesnt work try some WD-40, although I dont know how the orings will react to it...

When I removed the feed neck from my son's vs1 I held the feedneck over the gas burner of my kitchen stove you might want to try a propane torch. You want to be carefull to not get it too hot and screw up your delrin bolt.

....or you could just take the bolt out:p ... If you need to put you marker in the vice you could wrap it in a towel. that is how I hold mine if I need to...

Or just take the bolt out first. ;)

A good feedneck for less than $20? Unheard of by me... I'll see what I can come up with for ya, though.

EDIT: Here ya are, found some T-Locks for cheap.

Ion threads won't work for my vs1. I just got my maddog in today, the feedneck is actually bigger than the tube coming off of the gun. Plus the inside of my gun tube doesn't have threads, it's just a metal tube. .. .I'm still looking for a solution. Ok, scratch that, I just went upstairs and tried UNSCREWING what SEEMED like was just that metal tube, and YES the ION THREADS WORK, I'm so happy with my maddog!!!!!!!!

What worked for me was a bit of heat from an over burner, a pair of leather gloves, some pilers, and calling it a "*****" once. I wrapped the feed neck with the leather glove and twisted away with the pliers. Came off with no troubles the second attempt.

Then I put on the NDZ Pro-Lock Feedneck. woot!
