Just silver solder it like the original... Clean it throughly. Wire it together, in the position you want the feedneck to stay. Apply ready to use silver solder with the flux already in the paste. Heat with a propane torch, until the solder melts. Allow to cool slowly... Do NOT dunk it in water. Problem solved.

you could even jb weld a nut to the body and countersink the bottom of the feed block to fit over the nut...then if you decide to use a hopper you can use a feed neck with the little tabs like on a spyder

I am aware of a lawn mower repair shop that uses jb weld to repair motors. Even ones that have had a rod punch thru the side of the motor. They swear by the stuff and have been doing this for years.

I am considering using a nut now. I'm in the middle of moving, so the project is on hold for a week. This does give me the most options, while still being rather low profile.

The bonding agent is not JB weld, though it has a few minutes before it sets.

I'll have to take a look at the hardware store to see what kind of nuts and bolts they have, and what would work best.

I also need to get some springfeed plans. PVC with a spring? What is a good follower to use? I can always cram and jam for the mean time.

Thanks for all the advice. I'll be sure to get some pictures when it's done.

You could combine the techniques. Drill and tap the body, then use a screw to hold and locate the nut for JB weld or solder.

I would stuff a rag or similair soft material down the bore so you don't scratch it, then use a round file to smoothe the edges, and sandpaper for the outside curve of the main tube.

I filed down some of the area around the feedport and went for it. Applied "Weldbond" to both surfaces and now I am just waiting. It's within a milimeter of where I intended it to go, so I don't think I will fuss around with it. Now's it's only 24H to cure. Pictures to come.

So, for a springfeed, should I just grab some PVC and the SA17 spring? Cut a line in the piping and make a hole before the end? (I intend to do it like Agent Smith's warsensor's, where the spring covers the port)

Any reccomendations for followers? Or if you've found a good How To, post the link.

Any help is appreciated.

So, after two failed attemps, I've finally got it. I was applying too much of the bond. I think the leaking has been fixed as well. I only hope they both stay intact...



I think I'll try it in a game before adding the springfeed or stock. None until Febuary though.

But to brainstorm on the stock...I'm thinking the ASA on the front...near the mag well. The drop should let me get my hand above it.



Now, should I upgrade to a 17 or 22 CI tank? Oddly enough, the 22 is only a half inch longer, due to the reg being so short. I have no idea how efficient `Mags are.
