Available opions for feed tubes

My ideal feed tube:
- One-piece, 12-balls, standard feed gate
- Attaches to both the main body and the valve body
- Smaller view ports, driver side only
- Picatinny rail
OP: It doesn’t tick off all of your wants, but I can recommend the “Mongo”/Duckslide style one piece feed. It is 12 ball and very similar to the CCI one piece feed, with two exceptions...

It looks better (in my opinion) with the concave milling down the sides.

It fits the body very good (has the correct “Phantom” radius on the underside?). I have never had a CCI one to compare it to, I just know that they fit perfect with no movement utilizing just a front screw (longer than stock).

I had long thought they were unicorns that people charge a premium for when sold, but it turns out they are available in abundance new from Paintballgateway. They commissioned Sanchez machine (who made the Mongo versions as I understand it) to do a run for them a few years ago and are still sitting on quite a few. Cheaper than the CCI version to boot!

Oh...wait, that’s the version I have. That’s *not* the CCI one? I don’t know what I’m talking about.

Anyway, it’s heavier than stock but it’s very nice. You’ll need a 3/4 screw or maybe slightly ground down. The standard stock feed screw is about 1/8” too short.

I'd have to look to verify, but I _think_ they are drilled/tapped for CCI sight rails...

Wow, I saw that at PaintballGateway but I thought it was just the dust version of the CCI feed. I like the looks of it, although the viewports look about the same size as the windows of my car. You wouldn't happen to know the width of the sight rail?

I think they made the windows huge to avoid it being even heavier. Max width is about .9”. Of course the CCI speed feed is the same width as usual and the widest part.

If anyone buys one of these from PB Gateway like I did and needs a screw (none included) PM me and I will send you one for free as I have 49 extra.

I would indeed be interested in knowing if this is the case.

Can confirm - they are drilled/tapped.
