my stock feedneck got stuck on my egg and i ended up stripping the breech

Your best bet is starting out by removing all the orings in the feedneck, see how that fits, if its loose then put one back in and try again...so on and so forth. Then get a new feedneck as soon as you can.

you can do a couple things to the eggy...one....shave the feedneck...or 2....put normal (blowback) gun oil on the feedneck of the eggy and it should slip in and hold well but come out easily when needed.

thats what i did and it works wonders....

you can also remove any o-rings that cause problems.

i saw a way to make the stock feedneck clamping...its pretty simple if you see one....i've never had problems with my stock feedneck though...

you might have to sand the neck of the egg itself...do it very gently though

I did with mine,and I still have a hard time getting it in and out...so I'm buying a Q-lock next week.

take out all the o-rings inside the feedneck then put you egg n it should be pretty lose then get electrial tape and wrap it around the feedtube of the egg once and repeat until it fit snuggly

i had no problems with my egg or halo in the stock feedneck. but slightly lubing the orings does work really well.

if you have a dremel you can do what I did........ take the dremel and cut 4 to 8 slits in it then slide on a hose clamp works perfect and the price over comes any cosmo problems 60 cents > 35 dollar feedneck
