PMI Trracer Feedneck

Is it true that PMI Trracers take 7/8" feednecks? If so, where could I get one for cheap? Thanks in advance.

I'm fairly sure they take 1" feednecks. Not 100% though.

I'm pretty sure it's 1" as well. I had to get a special feedneck for mine at least.

When you order the Maverick on Gunitpaintball, one of the options is to add a 7/8 feedneck. Do you think new Mavs have a different size feed than old ones? I have an old one.

I had 14 Traccers/Mavericks/Nelson Clones and they where all 1". If it's an older one it most likely is 1". Easiest way would be to measure yours with a ruler.

Feednecks only cost 1-2 dollars. I wouldn't worry about them too much, get one of each.

I've encountered maverick/trracers with both sizes. The larger ones look like a sleeve is on there, you can see a seam where it meets the mainbody, whereas the smaller ones are just the feedneck and some welding visible where it meets the mainbody. Local field has a bunch that they used as rentals a while back, both style bodies are in the mix so I'm not sure if one was mainly for trracers and one for mavericks or what the story is, but that's how you can tell the difference.

Ok, I guess i'll buy both. Does anyone know of a website that sells both sizes?

I believe the earliest Trracers had 7/8" necks. I remember using them as rentals at Skirmish around '92-93 and those (I'm pretty sure) had 7/8" necks which were welded on. This (again, I'm pretty sure) was prior to ACI marketing the Maverick, so perhaps the earliest Trracers were actually produced by someone else, and when ACI took over their manufacture, they switched to the 1" feed neck. I have no facts or evidence to back this us...it's just supposition on my part.
