Are you talking about taking a classic left/right and making it center feed or you talking about taking a xmag breach and making it center? Or getting a ule body verses the other two options?

You can also get 2k9 body and have all 3 in one.

i have a magic box mag.
it is left feed.
i hate offset feeds.
im either going to convert it to centerfeed, or just buy a centerfeed.

Luke does it but it is still offset. I think he just miters the feed tube so it goes straight up instead of sideways. Then you put an ego feedneck on. Here is a link.

beat me to it, i just got a body done by luke. and looking at that one, i dont think you can make the left or right feeds into direct center feeds, the holes cut into the bodies are of center. also if you did, you now would have to go hunting for a center feed barrel, and those are hard to find too.

Doc's Machine did one or at least documented one. Who knows how many he did?

From Doc's Machine gallery
-The Five steps in making your own vertfeed 'Mag body: One, pull the old neck and weld up the hole.
-Two, after it warps from too much TIG heat too fast, hammer it straight on a mandrel. Swing hard.
-Three, grind and sand it smooth again, and redrill the feed hole. Machine the new neck from 303 stainless.
-Four, silver-solder the new neck in place, making sure it's straight, level and square.
-Five, sand and buff it 'til it shiiiines.

You say left feed do you mean warp left? Pic would help determine what you mean exactly.

Left side powerfeed, not a horizontal warp... Just a basic left feed
