That's gonna be my new poster over my service work bench at work ...
Your on a good track with a premade magwell, I did an attempt a few years ago with a machined /welded magwell and it went horribly bad ... It will save you lots of drama to have a well fitting well.
Keep up posted ...
Love my SSR
Love my brass
... hard choice ...
Looking for pgp ... Shoot me a PM if you have a spare one

Got a few minutes to try and wrap my head around this tonight. Discovered a few things. The magwell is a bit larger than the revy body, so no matter which method I pursue I will need to print or sculpt some kind of build up to keep the fit snug. That being said, each course offers its own challenges.
If I go with the breech load option,
I eliminate the possibility of zoom dot fins sticking on the bolt as it slides forward and I have a semi auto mag fed phantom! This method also requires less milling than the other. But, the milling necessary includes identical cuts in the body as well as a breech sizer. The only body truly in contact with the mag well is the slanted bit, so a significant amount of build up will be necessary. Also, efficiency will be shot to hell as air can escape below the round and into the mag.
If I go the pump route...
I should be able to invert the stock body placing the feed hole on the bottom and mill this to a zoom dot shape. The new top will have the start of the old cocking path. Tap the bolt, mill the rest of the slot and I have a top cocking mechanism that would easily attach to an over barrel pump rod. The old feed neck anchors on the new bottom could also be plugged or used to anchor a plate which holds the body to the mag well. Lastly, the body ends flush with the magwell for a clean look.
But...the trigger frame will need extensive modification to fit the magwell, and as I’ve lost my front frame screw to the inversion of the body, a new location will have to be sorted, drilled and tapped.

I talked to ADN about doing a magfed phantom body. He said he's wrapped up in projects until the end of the year, but may be able to start looking at it then.
I really hope it works out with him. His other conversions have all been on point.
And I really think this is what's next in my phantom journey.
