For anybody who is still following this thread and its slow progress, I finally got a feedneck. I used the money I got from my (super sweet) 16th B-day.








Edit: took pic of check out so I don't get scammed.

Looks great! Although... I'm not entirely sure I am a fan of the feedneck being held on with just some grub screws .

Oh ****, sorry guys. I did some spring cleaning and decided to delete those. I didn't know anybody actually cared about them that much. I thought this was a ghetto job only I was poor enough to do. If anybody wants to try this and needs help, PM me.

I have not cut my feedneck down to this but I will as soon as I get the chance to go home from school and use the lathe at home. I think the thread about this in the voided warranty forum, a guy said that the 05 ego feedneck opening is .93 inches in diameter which means it will fit these measurements and allow it to tightened down on the feed neck nub on the cocker.

Thank you for dmansr25sd for these dimensions. You can find his and my drawings of ego's and cockers in the CAD forum.

This is the nub dimensions where the feedneck would fit on an 05 ego.

its .9" in diameter .42" deep
The groove for the o-ring(optional) .06" wide, .05" deep, offset from the top .05"

for a better look i would suggest depending on the body milling a little flat circular recess into the body so the feedneck is tighter to it and sticks up less, the last one i saw was way high up, unfortunatly then you might loose the structural integrity needed.

I did a CAD drawing for you guys. Sorry if the image is big but it helps you see it in more detail(IT IS IN INCHES!)


here is what it looks like with the cocker in full picture

I hope this helps some of you guys out!
It's a great drawing and everything, but the outside diameter is wrong. I got my feedneck milled to around .91" and the feedneck doesn't even clamp on it, just falls off. I would suggest at least .92"; it makes a HUGE difference.

I might be wrong, I might not. I just got those dimensions from a fellow CAD drawer who got the dimensions straight from his ego body. And I trust his measurements. Maybe some feedneck clamps vary in sizes. I never had an ego feedneck or a body to take exact measurements so I wouldn't know. I would change the dimensions and everything according to your opinions, which would probably be better, but for some reason everthing that is related to photobucket isn't showing up on my computer at all. even the website doesn't work.

The ego feednecks are really weird, I got the c-clamp one which is basically a stock 05 with the clamp. I just took a file and shaved off a tiny bit to make it clamp a little bit more and now it's not going anywhere if I don't want it to. I'm not sure if the feedneck will fit over .93, but I know something around .925 or so will do the trick, even .92 will probably be good. Before I shaved it, a single layer of construction paper between the feedneck made all the difference from falling right off, to tight as can be.

EDIT: for anyone who wants to see more pics of ego feednecks on cockers (it seems I can't take a steady picture anymore ):

Although I think the ego feedneck is a good, cheap alternative, I still would prefer an FBM pressfit over it. The pressfit sits way lower, at least as low as AKA threaded feednecks do. Ego feednecks on the other hand, are tall, just like cocker/timmy threaded feednecks.

BTW, is that a Jcurt halfblocking job I see?

It's not cheaper really, for both, you have to pay for machining, and the part. Unless you're referring to the ghetto mod. It's really preference, although the feedneck is higher, if something ever happens to it, you can replace it yourself. I'm not sure why that is relevant, but it makes me rest easy. Even though they are tall, they sit just as high as the stock press fits which was good enough for me before, or else it looks too low and weird. Also, ego feednecks= no threads, easy to take off and clean and such. The coolest feature is that you know that it's custom and not very many people have it. Yep, Jcurt does amazing stuff, his bolts are great too, and he's the one that machined the feedneck for me.

Never seen anything happen to a feedneck, unless it was one of the huge plastic elbows.

Except with a pressfit, the paint doesn't even get in awkward places that you don't have to clean.

Okay, you got a point there. It does look pretty sweet.

I know, I somewhat designed one style of his bolts. He does great work and holds a tight tolerance.

Nothing personal, but if you look at my drawing for the ego feedneck mod, and then look at derek's picture of his, my mod will let the ego feedneck sit lower then his. But it still might sit higher the an FBM pressfit.

It also depends what you like. I like the look of ego feednecks. doolinkid, don't get me wrong I know you know what you're talking about and you always have great advice. Its just that I know how people like to have the loader closer to the marker so I drew mine with it cut lower down into the "sight rail" and closer to the main body.

Yep, I agree completely. I definitely would double check the diameter the neck needs to be milled to before doing this mod. I must say I like how it looks.
