Not on a common twist-lock body. Powerfeeds are nice, but elbows blow. Stainless left and right bodies get all sorts of mods. Center feeds are a little rare (as are the barrels). A hacked but playable marker beats a pristine marker in the trash any day.

But an RT euro high rise body would surely bring a wrath down upon you.

Done a couple of those. They work great and look sharp.

You'll need to shim the feed on the cut down feedneck with something. I used a piece of thin walled copper pipe, which you can barely see up under there in these photos. I probably should have blackened that somehow. It wasn't really noticable at all during gameplay though, so I didn't worry about it. The bottom one was a Trinity feedneck, but I've never been able to track down another one. Seemed to be better made, and you could shim with the whole pipe on that one. There was more room on the bottom end.











If you have a cut off wheel it's really easy to do a good clean job.

Oh, and BTW, those J&J Ceramic barrels are NICE!

Couple of befores. Top one was an E-mag centerfeed IIRC, and then the one with the vents was a factory teflon centerfeed Minimag body. I'll probably go to hell for chopping that one, as they're pretty rare.

You did a nice job so the gods might forgive. I am trying to take a powerfeed right side body (I think its called) and do the ego mod. going to get some other pipe or use the same feed tube for it.
