Question for BL tech/machinist
I called BLAST a few weeks ago, intending to ask about this problem, but it wasn't too pressing at the time and I ended up just getting a replacement feedneck ring (which they didn't have in stock anyways haha), but I figured it would be easier to post it up here.
Here is an attempt at a diagram of the feedneck without the ring on (I don't have access to a digital camera right now haha):
| -- ' <
'--------------REST OF BODY (BACK) hmmm not a shabby job haha
Where the "v" and "<" is pointing, is bent. Slightly.
I didn't do this; the previous owner had a BL clamping feedneck on it (one of the big mother****ers), and when I took it off, the feedneck was like this.
From the top, it's barely noticeable, but you can't fit a normal Halo inside the feedneck at all. My Vlocity BARELY fits, but it stays tight when I fit it in.
I don't even HAVE a feedneck ring right now, but the gun functions normally without it.
This is irritating me, however, and I was wondering if BLAST had a dremel with a tough enough bit to smooth this thing out, or any other solution?
Thanks in advance!
