why not put a different feedneck on. lower profile

What i was thinking as i looked at my karni was how ugly and tall the feedneck is.
why not mill the neck down so it is flush with the body then drill and tap the remaining part of the press fit for a screw in feedneck. It would look better and be a lot shorter.
Maybe its been done?

You could also cut down the neck and make it work with an Ego feedneck, no need to buy a pricey tap or anything. May not be as short as it could be, but it'll be a little shorter.

while the stock feedneck isnt the greatest, i always felt karnis just never looked right with anything other than the stock parts. i put a lever lock one on mine and ended up switching because because it just didnt "look right". the ccm ones dont look too bad on there though. it'd be cool to see a threaded in one, keep us updated

That's a pretty big tap. Be carefull not to rotate the part that is still in the breach.

Fireball mountain use to sell camping pressfits that could be cut down to sit flush, but I don't think they are around anymore.

I can say for certain that if you have a working cocker that shoots just fine you are one of the three, or all of the above. 1- you are not an idiot. 2- you know someone who is not an idiot. 3- you have enough money to pay someone who is not an idiot. - jonotwist

Yea i have thought about buying a pressfit from pbgateway and having it modded then installed but getting the height right could be tricky.

This. I think anything other than the stock parts looks bad on a Karni. While the stock necks are kinda tall, it never really bothered me that much. Just through a prophecy on it and I never worried about my hopper getting hit. Let us know how it works out for though! You could end up with a pretty sweet custom mod. Just don't go to crazy and half block it lol
