If I still had my A5 I would totally get this, the Cyclone was my least favourite part of the whole platform.

I don't understand why at the price of this feed neck why someone would buy a used 98 custom or better yet a model 98.

^If you had an A5/X7 set up in a certain way, I could see it. Otherwise, I agree.

I guess the aftermarket has fallen off for the 98 and I would guess one of these is the only thing stopping me from buying a phenom

When you get them in at a low price, drop me a PM

I just bought one of these. I hope it works better than the cyclone that only shoots 400 rnds and breaks. I'm tired of the A5. If this doesn't help any, it's going to metal scrap.

Later,

My big question, how tough would it be to adapt one of these to an old Tippmann Factory FA? (insert evil laugh here)

Lol, I had trouble getting my whole A5 plus a crapload of extra parts to sell at $120... $70 for a feedneck? Good luck.

Although I will say it is clever how they managed to make it work without having to snap the hook off of the receiver. I'm guessing they anticipated only selling very few of them and are hoping those few people who want them want them badly enough to pay that kind of price.

i would buy this before i fork out $70 for the other one. better yet i'd just bodge one together with some 45* elbows and jbweld to make the shape. probably cost $10 total with jb left over and still be removeable
