Modern feedneck that will fit Angels...

Hello All,

Inception Designs is working on our minimalistic "universal" feedneck.

It will fit the shoulder set up I designed on all Empire and Inception gun bodies and I am going to make it come with threaded stubs for different guns.

So far for the feedneck stubs I have

* ICD/SP/Empire

* Angel - for this I have M21 X 0.75 6g as the thread. Is there a certain height I need to allow for in order to clear on Angels or can I make it as low as the stub I did for SP and Axe threads?

I plan one Angel thread as low as possible for the AGD ULE Gun bodies, and one with 15mm of height clearance from the end of the threads (very end of the part) to where the feedneck sits in order to clear the rotary breeches. I am open to suggestions on this dimension. It looks good on my LED Angel, but I don't have other to check it against. I would really appreciate people checking for me and letting me know before we start...

Any other threaded stubs I should offer for different guns? Should we offer different height stubs for anything specific?

Is he actually producing stubs, or was that a short run for a couple people? Did they ever actually come out?

I love that there's still some interest in products for Angels. It's a shame nothing can be done about Bob Long's necks on his more recent guns, but he seems committed to slick-stubs. *shrug*

I PMd Andy a few times, he was working through some things design things, but stopped responding. I'm not sure if he's working on it or not. Simon I can send you 2 feednecks. One that clears A4 and newer and one that clears IR3 and older.

Just saying when I asked him after you posted that picture he said he was willing to do a run, but when I asked about preordering or getting a list of guys together he didn't respond back. I realize he's probably got a boatload of things going on, so things get pushed back.

We would be doing full feednecks with multiple feed stubs with the goal that stores and fields can stock just one feedneck for almost all needs.

Right now I am looking at including two angel threaded stubs. One very low profile, and then one where the bottom of the "cup" is at approx 15mm from the end of the threads. That looks to work with my LED. Not sure if it will work with everything since?

If someone wanted to make it lower, but not as low profile as the very short one, they could then thread it up higher with a dye, and cut it off at whatever point they want.

Modern feedneck with full clamping ability. Ambidextrous lever placement, thumbwheel for clamping adjustment. Slim and as light in weight and style as possible.

That would be useful or just place them next to a decent rule to get an idea of height to start with.

I'll be taking pictures of my entire Angel collection within a month - mostly LEDs and LCDs. I could probably take a measurement for each mill pattern... I think I have just about all of them, lol.

I can do either Simon, but we can start with the pictures.

Al, I think the meaningful dimensions can be pulled from the feednecks. Otherwise I would have volunteered an 05 speed and a G7 Fly body.

Went to measure my LCD feedneck and I can't find my calipers or measuring tape..... Looks like it's time to kill a roomate or two

Awesome thank you. Top one looks like the 15mm clearance one I have would work perfectly, do the older IR3's need the extra height or is it just because gravity loaders and large ball stacks were the fashion/need back then?

Would the top feedneck work ok on IR3 and older guns?

Mamba IR3 with the A4 neck. Looks like it worked.

15MM would be just a touch greater than what's needed. I do not have an LCD to test on. The gated feedneck was the only pre A4 feedneck I had on hand. I'll see if we can get someone with an LCD/LED to weigh in.
