Egg and Ion

I have an Egg and it wont fit in the feedneck. ( I have stock feedneck) I was wondering if u have to remove the first O-ring or all of them??? Or do i just jam it in there when all the O-rings are in the feedneck. Also when u put in the hopper do i just jam it in the feedneck or do i twistit in??

I already looked at stickies and searched so dont ask

Also this is kinda dumb question but to take out O-rings do i just tear them out??

Remove all the feednecks, twist it forth and back into it, then wrap 5-6 layers of electrical tape on it.

Try taking both upper orings off. I did this to my ion and it fits my revy and egg(both unsanded) nicely...1 oring also fits my sanded HALO perfectly.

i had the same problem too. this is what u do. u take out the two top o rings. leave in the bottom, then u shave down the feedneck with some sandpaper for a while. maybe like 20 min. but when it gets hot, let the neck/sandpaper cool down then go again. after that, u hold the feedneck and twist the eggy in. thats what i have to do anyways...

Take the top o-ring in the feedneck out. To do this just use your finger and pull it out. Keep the bottom o-ring in and the eggy fits PERFECTLY inside.

I really wouldnt want to shave down my feedneck, just shell out the 30 some odd dollars for a good clamping feedneck instead of sanding.

If you rub the orings and outer part of the neck (of the hopper) with Dow 33 you can easily get a snug fit between a stock egg (no sanding) and stock feedneck (w/all orings), just spin the hopper clockwise as you insert it. It worked for me until I got my Q-lock

if that is still alittle tight, the best tool that I've found to remove orings (other than a oring removal tool) is a dental pick....

hope this helps
