i want to sand down vlocity's tube because its little bit too high... what kind of sander should i use? i dont think i can cut it off because the tube might crack... let me know guys. thanks!

Use a dremel with a cut off wheel... It should not crack. Just be careful.

or a hack saw. Mount the loader into the feedneck and use a sharpie to draw around th4e neck so you have a nice, clean line to cut on.

Yea, I have cut a couple feed necks on different hoppers and I say use a hacksaw and the method that druid explained..

yep .. hacksaw method will work .. but i'd probably use a file after to smoothen out rough edges ... i hate em .. :p

on my egg, i used a hoseclamp on where i wanted the cut and then went nuts with the grinder, clamp is good for a guide, quick touch up with a file on the edges after. total time about 1 minute

Propane Torch and a Steel rod about .5cm in diameter.....

Draw a line.... Light torch... Put on heat resistant gloves... Heat rod until it turns red then quickly Place on the line and watch the magic.... File off any bulges in the plastic....

Perfectly clean heat cut...

Or you could use a sander with 150 Grit sandpaper and sand away.

i took the picture late at night so its pretty dark but you get the idea. my vlocity was ABOUT half an inch taller. my pm5 with basic upgrades: cp trigger, hybrid grip and ul barrel. enjoy!

i just stuck my hopper into the feedneck, clamped it down where i want it, and hacked it to size. worked pretty damn good. took all but 1 minute hah.

I stuck the hopper neck in my feedneck on the gun first, drew around it with a marker at the point where I wanted it to be cut, and then took it and cut it with a jiggsaw. (That was the easiest way I could think of, untill I relised my rotozip still works)

Then I took it to my belt sander and sanded it rounded and smooth. Now it looks professionally done! Its quite easy.

Oh I didnt do this with a Vlocity though. I did it with an Evlution Viewloader II.
