Clamping feedneck for stockclass

How are CCI's clamping feedneck conversion kitS for stock class bodies? Are the sturdy or mostly just for small gravity hoppers? I was thinking of picking up a centerfeed body and was trying to decide between the stockclass and bolt on feedneck or just the open class only one.

I'll be honest, I think they're solid. Only drawback is that there's no lever. I popped the collar off and swapped it with a lever collar I got from a different feedneck. My son uses it and likes it. I rarely play open class, so I'm ok with using a hex key for mine.

For the price though, it makes more sense to just get an open class body.

What threads? I'm trying to make the same decision, but have a spare angel feedback which would save me some if it worked. But Mike seems too logical to use those awful fine Metric threads.

Edit: Just found out they're 7/8"-20, which is CCM threads. Hopped on the PC to search old threads in this forum.

I believe they are spyder threaded, but I am not confident of that.

I did not like mine! I got them when they first came out around 2011-ish and they sat loose and wiggled and had a gap when I tightened the screw that connected it to the body

Used a motorized hopper and a VL-200 with it and was nervous about the adapter falling off either way

I sold it to a happy ebay buyer so maybe it was just in my particular case that it did not work for me!

Roll the dice if you like
I love all of CCI Mike's other products

I'd spring for the actual fixed center feed body with ccm feed neck Mike offers. Its a difference of $17

Thanks for the responses, Legolas has offered me an old style one, which is great as I can try it out for a lot less than new. I like the idea of owning a stock class body just incase I every want to try that too, so this seems like a good plan. Just have to be careful not to buy any more parts, or I might end up with a second phantom that I don't need!

That'll probably happen anyhow, Phantoms do tend to multiply once you have a working one.....lol

Be very careful. They breed like bunnies.

^ Very true. My collection and parts really got away from me for a while. Down to just two complete markers now and one or two various spare parts. I still need a classic VSC with 2 piece feed in a cool acid wash though......
