You need to buy either a metal feedneck (best option) or get a plastic vertical elbow (bad option, they tend to not hold very tight and break easily)

Or split the difference and get a metal elbow: http://www.ansgear.com/Lapco_7_8_Uni...alfeedneck.htm

That's probably your easiest option as the TL-R is an older Spyder and Kingman for some reason used several types of feedneck so finding the right one for you gun might be hard. The one I linked just slips over your stock neck and bolts down.

There is this wonderful device called a hack saw that will make it fit if it doesn't. It's not hard to take a little bit off the feedneck.

Back in the old days, getting a loader to fit in a feedneck was simple.
If the loader was too tight, sand the spout.
If the loader was too loose, wrap the spout with electrical tape.

That. I was thinking of typing that out when I posted but decided not to. However it amazes me how squeamish people are about feednecks these days. I frequently see people post "My loader doesn't fit in my feedneck, what do?" and get the response "Spend $30-$50 on a new feedneck". FFS just sand or cut the plastic!

Although in this case you really should spend the $30 on a new feedneck because plastic elbows are terrible and you'll probably break more than $30 worth of them. They aren't really designed for electronic loaders and the weight of a magna will not be good for them.
