First off, the second picture is of a non-WGP body. They have threads in the body which allow the feedneck to sit lower.

WGP bodies used press-fitted feednecks instead of threading the body for a feedneck. This means the body cannot be threaded like the one in the second pic. Only the feedneck that was pressed into the body could be threaded, which made the feedneck taller. One option is to turn down the stock feedneck to accept a feedneck from an Ego. However, even those feednecks still aren't as low as most. The best option is to find a new body that is internally threaded.

And the gun in the first pic looks like the stock feedneck was just cut down and a CCM ring added to what was left, not a very good solution.

Thank !
What do you think of a Empire Sniper Feedneck ? It work like an Ego but is it possible to do it on a WGP ?

(Your English is perfect, i understand everything you say ! And it's difficult for me because English is not my native language. Really thanks Minimag !!)

The Empire feedneck looks like it would work. However, the measurements for the Empire is probably a little different than the Ego feednecks. Bob Long's feednecks also might work. Basically any feedneck that tightens itself onto the body in stead of threading into it.

And thanks; I bet its hard for you to get any info out of PbN lol.

Do you know the measure of the Ego ? Bob Long can be a solution but I don't like the form

Do you have someone with a Empire Sniper on MCB and with a tools accure for measure the Feedneck ?

(P.S: I take my information on Scénario Paintball, a french web site )

What I used for the feedneck on my project was a Lapco Spyder clamping feedneck, they're are pretty common. I believe that the neck size needs to be 7/8 or .875 inches. All I did was pull out the old feedneck (exactly like in the third picture) using an automotive gear puller, then cut off the cup part on a lathe, trim down the remaining stalk and press it back in. The only thing to be careful about is when you press it back in have a rod or old bolt in side the body to act as a guide for the cup. The only thing I had to do after was cleanup the threads for the ball detent.

Another option is to use a feedneck (like a CCM threaded one), turn done the minor O.D. (the smaller outside diameter) to 7/8 and press that in. Before you press it int, you will have to saddle out the bottom of it on a milling machine and notch it for the detent too.

I have done both and they work great. I can post up pics of each to better explain if you want.

Here is my custom pump, I used a stock WGP body (similar to the last pic) the feedneck is the stock one turned down like I said. The pic is from Caustic Customs he did the ano work on it. Thats not engraved its ano'd

Ego necks are also .875 inches (sorry, I don't have the metric conversion).

I'd suggest talking to super_stanchy on this website. He does Ego feedneck conversions, so he could provide good advice on how to do it properly. The process might be exactly like Jkoselka described above, I'm not very sure. Best of luck getting it on the gun!

i figured out a way to have a lower clamping feedneck on a standard body....

essentially i am using ccm feedneck collars and making my own clamping feedneck using the existing neck
but i have also made them from scratch...


here is the only picture i have.... (picture doesnt show it very well)



i have done it to 3 different cockers...

2k1 vert feed (done, made from existing neck)
2k3 vert feed (done, made from existing neck)
superbolt (made from scratch, just need bolt clearance)

if you chop the rails off, you can go about a 1/4" lower
