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.

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.
