Default Is there any way to get a clamping feedneck on this?

Man I really want a clamping feedneck but don't want to switch out bodies. I've tried to contact wgp but they won't return my email's and I can't call during the day to see about shipping it back and getting a threaded one press fitted in.



I need it so bad though as the three hopper's I use are all different sizes and I don't want to sand to wrap tape around them.

So annoying.

Any ideas or does anybody know anybody that can hook me up with a clamping one?

JB.

you have to send it somewhere to get it pressed in. fireball mountain is one option. they will press it in for you if you send it in, or just send you the neck and you can bring it somewhere to be pressed in.

Can any "run of the mill" machinist do it without hurting the body?

Anyone that can press things can do it most likely. I'd call around to local machine shops and talk to someone there. They will give you the best answers. Personally, I'd send it to FBM to do it themselves. That way they are the ones to blame if something goes wrong. God forbid they make a product and market it wrong.

(long story short: I bought a press in cocker feedneck from them because they said it worked on all press in timmys. turns out it doesn't, but its not their fault for marketing it wrong, its bob longs. I was out $45 because of that.)

From what I've heard FBM is great about doing it, and as Chris said, it's best for them to mess it up and have to replace it than you. All of a sudden I'm glad my feedneck was threaded so I don't have to go through this hassle. :-/ Good luck, QAZ!

You still have a tall freakin feedneck though. A pressed in feedneck from FBM is the same size as or smaller than putting a CCM no-pro on a cocker threading, except with the FBM you don't have to cut the feedneck on the hopper.

Mine's actually not that tall, about the same size as a no-rise. I got the feedneck I have because I can't cut the neck on my hopper because of my ProMaster. If I did and got a feedneck to match that cut, the bolt pin would hit it (not good lmao!).

Well, you can turn it into a clamping feedneck by taking a hacksaw, or band saw, and make 2-4 cuts on the feedneck (vertically of course). Do that, then take a pipe clamp (you can find them at home depot) and shove it on there, look for the smaller ones taht will fit well. Then tighten it up. That is the ghetto way.

Also, you can send your marker to http://www.turtleinnovation.com and they can put a threaded feedneck (no feedneck, just the threaded portion) on for 25 dollars or so. If not that, there is a guy I know who will thread the feedneck for cocker threaded feednecks for 60 dollars (outrageous, right?).
