Integrated Feed Neck

So looking at the new DM15 made me think of the original Marqs and made me wonder why BLAST stopped using the integrated feed necks on his guns. Anyone know why? I know the feed neck on my Insight will pop off if you don't torque it down really good. Really wish they would put a rig on it or come up with a different solution.

I think the design of the current feedneck is that it pops off on a nasty dive and saves your hopper's neck as well. I remember seeing some bad dives and broken hoppers with the necks stuck in the feedneck on marqs. The integrated feedneck design didn't have a simple leverlock available. There was a company who made one for the marqs but didn't work on the closers and it was more complicated in design due to the wedge retention. I don't know how DYE has designed their feedneck but if it had the grooves for expansion/contraction milled into an extended tab from the body feedneck, seems like it would be a weak point if one of those tabs broke versus simply popping on another feedneck.

You're diving incredibly hard/weird if you can pop the feedneck off.

I always clean the feedneck and body really well on my Vice. I then apply blue loctite and clamp it down. I let it sit for 24 hours and then use the marker. I've never had a problem.

That being said--I would prefer the lip.

I doubt Bobby Long is that clever and neither is his staff. Chopped the lack of a lip on the feed neck up to just oversight on their part. You just have to torque the crap out of the feed neck other wise it will come off.

I held a DM15 today, same as the DM14, but I will say that feedneck design they did on the 15 is dead sexy, very nicely done low profile and very sleek, I wish Bob would make his necks sleeker like the closer and marqs, dm nailed it with that neck

There's so much bull**** in this thread it's insane. There's nothing you can do to get these new trash feednecks not to come off in a dive or a slide. Mine does it every other time and if you torque down hard on the screw it cracks. I did it to my buddies VIS. Worst design ever.

I don't know what to tell you other than I have never had a feed neck pop off on 2 G6rs, 2Insights, 2 Victi, and 7 or so Victories.

I've had mine pop off several times. I learned to really crank on that tiny screw in order to fix the problem.

Never had an issue with any of my 5 guns that use this type of feedneck.

If you are doing woodsball than it will not pop off ever, but when u go xball one nice dive and your hopper with a feedneck is rolling near you, then you lose 15-30 sec trying to fix it, while your enemy is making some huge moves ... and bang-bang my baby shot me down
