Another idea is just making a spacer to go in between the one piece feed and the body that raises it up enough to not need to modify anything. Spacer could mount to the valve body using the two #6-32 threaded inserts that are used for the sight rails.

once you start changing the height of the ball stack you start breaking balls like an angry stripper.

In order to avoid cutting the feed gate, I scrapped version one of this project and went back to the drawing board (literally). Instead of trying to mimic the stock CCI feed cap exactly, I went with more of a humpback styled design to lift the feed gate up away from the dropout body. Here is the latest rendering of this project.


Once I get my hands on a 3D printer, I'll be able to play with tolerances. I also have it designed with a fairly moderate angle which should hopefully limit the number of supports needed to print it - except for the groove where the feed gate is inserted (this will definitely need supports as it is). I may play with fillets to reduce the need for supports here but I need to make sure that the groove holds the feed gate securely first.

Thanks. I really over-complicated the original design by trying to stick with an OEM look. This is much simpler, cleaner and it solves the issue.

Edit: I'll continue to update the original post with version updates.

What's the difference between raising it a centimeter and issuing a feedneck / hopper?
