Feed neck on a MM2K Pressed, or what?

Hi Mag lovers. I am focusing some more effort toward my 2K Micro Mag project once again. I would love to thread the feed neck for a clamping Cocker style clamp. My question is: Can the feed neck from a 2K Micro Mag be removed and if so, how? I would love to be able to single point turn a thread on it, rather than interpolate the thread in a mill.

It's pressfit with a small weld, but it's shorter and wider than most 'cocker feednecks. You can do a few things to help keep your hopper in place, easiest is to use a sleeve or teflon tape as a ship to hold the hopper... How often do you need to take it off in a day?

The alternative is to have it cut and slotted for a hoseclamp or CCM style clamp ring, but that can get expensive. I've also seen people use an extender with a clamp that they glue in place to the stock feedneck. I wouldn't go that route personally; I think the stock neck is pretty and gets the job done.

There were 12 made with STO style feednecks and 1 with Angel threads; I own one of the former and the latter.

you can also drill and tap it for a set screw if you want to go that route. i know a couple guys doing that on 2k vertfeed cockers. looks stock but there is a small set screw. i would start with a smaller size like 6-32 that way if the threads mess up you have room to go up from there.

Wow I'm dumb... That's a great idea! And I've got a beater body to test it out on too.

Can't believe more people didn't come up with this back in 2k-2k2

Is there enough meat to just turn it down to accept an ego feedneck? Personally, that is what I would do just because it is simpler than thread milling.

Drilling a hole and tapping it for a grub screw is going to be infinitely easier than turning down the existing feedneck. The former requires a drill press (or cordless drill) and a $5 tap and can be done neatly and cleanly in your garage. The latter would require a few hours of machine time and if you could find someone to do it, it'd probably be $100+

Is it the look you're going for, or just trying to keep your hopper in place?

I meant it is easier than thread milling. And I'm pretty sure RatFink has access to a mill so he can do the work himself.

But in any other case, yes the set screw is much easier, though in my opinion doesn't look very clean.

With set screws, I'm wary of the screw point trying to carry the full force of the loader going in and out. Maybe a little brass underneath would help. I can see one of my friends going to put on or take off my loader "for me" and plowing a new groove in the neck.
