Feed necks

I know there is another feed neck thread, but i was wondering who here had experiences changing the feed neck I would like something a little...better. any experience positive or negative is welcome. Some one will eventually ask why i want to change mine, well it is very loose and often moves sometimes the hopper will slide around thinking the feed neck is not clamping on the hopper well i move it and the whole feed neck turns. Thanks very much for your imput.

a) tighten up the feedneck

b) apply thread-locking compound, go back to a)

That should sort it.

Unless the threads themselves are damaged...

Empire Nano

I have one on mine currently.


and here is one with my magna hopper. which i did trim so i would have an equal low profile on it.

And yes, use loctite blue, so if you wanna remove it in the future you can get it off.
