KP2 feed. Opinions?

I have a KP2 with a direct feed, dropout slot, quicksilver, and RVA. I have a WALZ stick feed that I love but the fit isn't perfect. IT's very workable but not a real tight fit using tape to fill the gap. So I'm thinking about soldering the stick feed in place. I'm fine with that and I'm fairly good at hot work. My question is, if at some point I want to sell this, will the stick feed being soldered in ruin the value? Thanks!

I would not do it.
That feedneck is a odd size custom job (to tight for O rings) - if you send it back to me I will convert it to a slip fit with sets screws... FREE OF CHARGE>>> If its not right its not right.

While I like stick feeds, a lot of buyers would be turned off by the lack of options you create by permanently attaching one. A direct feed should retain the ability to use a hopper.

I think I'd take Walz up on the generous offer if you've got another paintball gun to use in the meantime.

See... this is why I love dealing with memebers here. WALZ has gone above and beyond any resonable expectations for me.

WALZ, thank you for the very generous offer. I'll leave it as is for now. Like I said it's still functional and I'm not crazy about the set screw option. You had no control over the size of my feed neck and did a great job with the stick feed. I'm not unhappy with the end result, I was only tossing around an idea. Thank you.
