Eggy Feedneck remainder stuck inside Gen-X Chaos Autococker

Yo guys,

So I found an old autococker that my brother had laying around the house from years back. Damn fool neglected to clean the hopper when he stored it an now the feedneck portion of the egg snapped off when I tried to take it out.

Anyone got any ideas on how to get this remaining portion out? Tried plyers and everything.... Looks like it's sandwiched between the outer feedneck and there's an internal metal tube.

Not sure what this internal metal tube you are reffering to is. There shouldn't be one. Try yanking that out with pliers first maybe.

Yeah, seems like that wasn't part of the feedneck. Tried to yank that out with the plastic, but damn thing won't budge =/ sadness.

Try some heat on it?

Get it nice and hot, the plastic should become softer and you could prob just pull it out.

+1 on the heat. Just be careful HOW you heat it, dont want to burn that beautiful ano!!

Or get a dremel and a sanding disk and wear it down till it just breaks.

I hate eggys lol. Pull it out carefully cuz if u start pulling out pieces u might not have anything left to pull from if there still are pieces left. I also think the heating should work

oh boy, heating it is then....

guess i'll try boiling water next, already tried hot water and didn't seem to do much

any ideas on why that metal tube is on the inside? That seemed quite strange to me, it's not part of the feedneck is it? It is slightly the same color, but not exactly. Was scratching it up a bit trying to use pliers to pick it up so I hope it's not part of the feedneck.

most likely some feedneck insert to keep the loader snug in the feedneck

If it's inside the egg feedneck then it's defiently not part of the gun. My only guess as to why its there is to add some support to the ****ty egg feedneck. It could also be their to spread out the plastic a little bit to hold the feedneck in tighter. If that's the case it's doing its job.

Either way don't worry about hurting that inner tube of metal.

try crushing what left of the eggy in a vise or with a channel lock. heat would do it to but be careful not to burn the feedneck' anno.

If I'm seeing that picture right, I'd first chip away the plastic. (I'd either use a chisel or dremel).
Once the plastic is gone clamp away on that extra metal sleve. You don't need to worry about damaging that.

the the inner metal sleeve with some thing (small cutoff wheel on dremel maybe?) then pop the metal out and the eggy feedneck should come right out.

been slowly tearin away at the plastic, but damn thing won't loosen up lol, tried boiling water, that didn't seem to do anything. I'm not sure if heat will work since any heat will also make the inner metal expand.

if only I had a dremmel tool =/

insert was used to take up the slack on the feedneck, many of the newer hoppers used undersized necks while the old fixed vert feeds tended to be overly large.

That said, what you have is an ANS LE series. The anno was done by PK and they were meant as ANS's premier line to compete with the top end market and showcase the ANS line. This included a high end trigger job and tuning as well as the anno. The project went over time and over budget and in general had a lot of problems getting into production. of the 6 lines they were supposed to make, they only produced three, of 25 or less each with unique annos (a water,a fire and a grey marble). instead of completing the line, they dropped it in favor of the cheaper, mass produced series. these aren't the same guns at all as the common gen x's series you see on the market normally, and in general are way under appreciated.

ah, now that I know what it is (thanks for the info) I googled and it looks like 24 were indeed made.

i would put part of the feed neck in some boiling water that way you wont ruin your anno
the hot water should soften the plastic enough to get it out

hope that helps, dont burn yourself though


Edit:
i would pour the water into a cup first then dunking the feed neck in there
