I just picked this up and plan on switching all my sniper part's to this body but I want a clamping feedneck for it. The problem is that it is definitely not cocker/sto threading and I read somewhere a while back that there is another type of threading for possibly this and Black Magic cocker's but I'm not positive.

If anybody has any insight as to what threading this feedneck is I would appreciate the input!

It look's to be an Eclipse body possibly. I'm just not sure!

"The paintball gun is vertical feed for the highest feed rates possible and to allow for ambidextrous shooting, and the feed neck is removable and cut with WGP threads."

Not on my Black Magic, that's for sure. Straight-up STO feedneck on her. Don't know where you heard otherwise.... Could it be Angel threaded? I know that AIM uses those threads on their bodies, mebbe Eclipse does the same.

There's only two types of threading like what he pictured. Cocker and Alias. Thats it. ALL other threading is on the outside of the feedneck and threads into a hole. I still dunno how people say Angel threading when Angels thread the same was a Shockers, Bushys, Trixes, etc.

Are you sure its not Cocker? My friend's old black magic used the same threading as all other cockers, like Tim's. That looks 100% like the threading on my old Alias, which was Cocker threaded.

From what I've been told and what I've looked up it's cocker/sto but the thread's are just too thick.

I'm either going to sand off the threading on a feedneck and slide it on and glue it or I think there's another Timmy feedneck that is cocker threading but set screw's also.

Don't bother me none to glue one on I got this beast for $100 woot woot.

That is an AWESOME body, I love the anno. Sadly I have no idea about cocker feedneck threads...

How much you want for it... that is basically my ideal cocker, mech one finger trigger, and kickass green ano.

Eh... not for sale. pneumatics have already been ripped off. Slide frame was sold locally today. All my sniper 2 part's are going on that body including my Dye single finger swing frame! Not sure if I'm keeping that reg on there or not just yet.

I'll have pic's tonight or tomorrow.

Have you tried putting a feedneck on there or just looked at it? I'd try threading a feedneck on there slowly, if you are worried.

Nation link with pic's of all neck's and both threading from my gz with cocker/sto threaded feedneck (http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?p=26144382#post26144382)

I tried my stock GZ neck and the shocktech neck neither would go past the first row of thread's.

That is odd. I can't think of anything that would help, other than using a Dremel and cutting the threads deeper/skinnier on the body. BTW, disregard my post in your other thread, after reading the one above mine I just had to. :D

Ok the CCM cocker threaded feedneck came in and it definitely did not screw on to those thread's. So I took a dremel and sanded out the threading and got it to where it slightly slipped over top of the thread's and then pressed it onto the oring. With the oring there it's not budging so some of you guy's can hold your breath as I didn't disturb the marker only the feedneck. It still might get glued on I'll have to see how it does with a revvy full of paint.

Pic's...

You may want to check the threads on the body to see if it is pushed in, or something, or if there is any loctite on it, as that may be what is happening, but if the original feedneck fits fine, then I don't know. As far as I know, Pre-some year Alias feednecks and STO/Cocker feednecks should fit.

The only autocockers with removeable feednecks that aren't cocker threaded are CCM bodies and AIM bodies, which are both Angel Threaded, as well as very very late edition Planet Eclipse DC2 bodies, which weren't threaded at all, and used Ego feednecks -- Which, if you ask me, is brilliant, becuase then you don't have to worry about stripped threads.
