CCI Centerfeed Body

I have lots of newbie questions over in this part of the forums eh? Anyway, i have one of the older CCI Centerfeed bodies that have the regular old feedneck, but i have the issue of not getting a single hopper to fit on the damn thing. No really... not even a standard VL200 will fit without flying off. I do have the adapter from CCI but damn that thing makes hoppers sit high.

I was wondering if there was anyway i can make hoppers sit lower on a centerfeed body? I really want to use my Extreme rage multi-caliber hopper on it, but if i have to resort to other hoppers for it to sit low i guess im willing to do so.

Go to your pro shop and ask for a 45 elbow:

How would that help me on a centerfeed body? maybe a right/left feed but wouldnt that just make my hopper sit at a 45* angle on a centerfeed?

They make straight ones as well. Used to be popular on Spyders. But, your hopper will sit high enough to require one of those blinky light signals to divert air traffic. CCI makes new centerfeed bodies that use CCM feednecks (I think), and they are nice and tight. Either get one of those, or use a small hopper, i.e. APP's 50 rounder.

I didn't try it with a sportshot, but when I had one of those bodies my winchester would slip over top of the feed. I then took one of those 45 elbows cut the clamping part off and tightened it down around the feed. worked great. A hose clamp would also work I'm sure. I now have a clamping feedneck body (It is CCM, and I really like it) and no longer have the older body, so I couldn't post a pic if I wanted to. but I hope it helps.

Edit - I also believe the older set up sat a little bit lower than my current set up does now. Not much, but a bit anyways.

A Winchester 50rd hopper can be stretched over the feedneck and a hose clamp used to keep it secure.

I use a sport shot with a bicycle seat post clamp directly on my center feed body. I use an adjustable reamer to open the feed till it is snug & the clamp looks a lot better than tape or hose clamps. It is a lever lock so no tools needed to install or remove.
