*Major Disaster*

I went to boston paintball yesterday and everything was going fine til the feedneck and hopper fell off my 06' Interceptor. I trying swap feednecks and adding some tape still no luck. The only other idea I have is loctite but I dont know which one to use with a problem like this. Are the feeknecks normally held in by loctite? If the loctite doesnt work is there anyway to get another body?

If the threads arent stripped then just screw it back on and use some Loctite Red.

If the threads are stripped ill let someone else answer.

like smokeage said. if the threads arent stripped used Loctite.. id use blue instead of red, just incase u need to take off the feedneck in the future. i think several companies use loctite on their feeneck threads

edit: im not too sure i'd call this a disaster

Ive never had to remove a feedneck so thats why I recommend Red but if yall say Blue will do it then I would go with that to be safe.

Red is most certainly a pain to break.

First thing......make sure the new feedneck is the proper threading. That could be why it's not fitting. A lot of them are "close" but not right. I forget which threading it is on the 06......aka or icd?

Figure out if the body has any threads - if all the threads in the body are gone all you can do is glue it. But if the body has any threads left - as in some of the threads on the feed neck are stripped - the don't put in the old feed neck, get a new one and glue it in. Yes, glue as in epoxy. It's not something you're going to swap out - and the more times it come off the less secure and less ability to firmly attach it. The gun is 5 years old, fix it the strongest way you can so it can shoot for another 5 years.

I went ahead and used some loctite and put a new neck in. If I have to epoxy the feedneck I well for the time being because I was already promised an Invasion for christmas (yeah I spoil myself christmas)

Thanks again guys I would really hate for a great gun to be broken
