Success! I was fortunate enough to find one at a local shop I wouldn't normally do business with. I probably paid to much for it too... BUT I HAVE ONE!

They'll have to pay for the tooling, machining, anno, and for them to make a profit on those 2000+ feednecks they'll have to charge $45+ to the customer, making less people want to buy them.

He's saying they'd rather not spend the time and money to make a feedneck unless they think it'll be a profitable business venture.


What wasn't mentioned in the response to the question posted on the support site is that the stock we had for Nano feednecks has actually just run out from 2008. Meaning they were made in 2008 and it took over four years to go through the quantity. In addition, the company that manufactured the feednecks for us has since gone out of business. Meaning even if we wanted to launch the same product we couldn't. Which only adds to the price as new tooling would need to be created just to re-manufacture the same part.

I love the nano feedneck, it's an awesome design, it just was three years ahead of it's time. If you guys produced these coinciding with the release of the axe, you'd have a constant demand for them, and they wouldn't have sat in warehouses for 3 years before people started appreciating it's quality, and just how "low rise" it is. It puts most other low rise feednecks to shame. Too bad the timing for the release to the demand didn't line up, not like you guys would know that most people wouldn't want a super low rise feedneck until 2011.

Wow....Empire is really dropping the ball with lots of their products. The E-Vents give away (if you ordered a Trracer) was a total bust and they have had a hard time getting those guns in, etc. Maybe Trinity can start making the feednecks now.

With the slack economy, no one wants to make products/parts for anything anymore.

I not sure that they are dropping the ball. The nano isn't much smaller and actually kind if a hindrance for me. The gun is too short with the nano feedneck. I've really gotta bend my neck low behind the gun to see under the hopper. This was fixed with the axtenze temporarily. But I removed that last event because of constant leaks and problems. The factory feedneck is adequate

With the nano feedneck ff the market and tons of axes still being sold, I'm sure a third party manufacturer will pick up the part and remanufacture it in some way.

quality looks kinda crappy, especially when comparing it to the nano. the top of the clamping arms look really rough, and the top end of the lever looks a bit scratched up.

So far it's been just as sturdy as my buddys nano. True, aesthetically it's not as pleasing, but it functions all the same and is readily available, unlike the Nanos

The Sanchez one COULD be aesthetically as good as the Nano if they'd lose the flare on the end of the lever.

Found this one on Ansgear today under the invert mini upgrades. If I'm not mistaken the threads on the Axe are the same. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, the threads are the same. The Nano was orginally designed for the Mini.

Thanks. Knowing that I may order this, especially considering its price.
