Default Feedneck problem

While pulling my hopper off today, I accidently spun my twist clamp too loose and it came off... without the c-clip, wich remained stuck inside the feedneck itself. I pulled it out, but I can't figure out how to connect it back into the twist clamp (it doesn't really fit and I'm afraid to try and squeeze it and force it in cause it seems like I might bend it up). I tried just sticking the c-clip in the neck and putting the twist clamp on over it, and that'll work to hold a hopper, but when I pull the hopper off the c-clip stays all the way tightened down in the feedneck.

So basically my question, for those who didn't feel like reading my long and pointless story, what's the trick to getting the c-clip and the twist clamp back together properly?

Scratch that, answered my own question... just squeezed the clip and slid it up through the twist clamp and it popped right in... maybe I'm babying this thing too much.

Yesssirrr
[the entire darn feedneck just twists right off the gun]
although this has become a problem for me because once i took the whole thing off i can't screw it back in tight enough to stay because when i tighten my hopper down in it with the c clip the entire feedneck now twists while the hopper is in it! what do i do now? i would really like to get an entirely new feedneck altogether. and i hear it is ion/impulse threaded?

CCM of course. I have them on almost all my markers. Clean all threads completely and use red Loctite. Let it cure -

I have a CCM no-pro on mine and I love it. The stock feedneck was a ***** to get off.
