DF Nelspot feedneck removal

I know that it'll probably be considered heresy here, but I just got my hands on a very nice Nelspot body with a brass direct feed attached (Thanks Chrisrook!)

While I do think it looks very nice, and will probably play a few games with it, ultimately I want to turn it into a sort of 'Golden Gun'. Single shot, bolt action, FS compatible.

So, eventually I'll be wanting to remove that feedneck. The trick here is that I don't want to damage either part, as for all I know the feedneck might be worth something to somebody at some point.
I know that a lot of our Brass-mages use torches of various descriptions to work with brass bodies, and I don't see why doing the same here wouldn't work, but I just want to run it by you guys to get some input.

Should I even bother with this? I do want this to end up being a convertible poor-man's R7, so the feed port will have a screw hole drilled and tapped in front to allow attachment of a Phantom feed assembly. I'm trying to get Stock Class into the OK paintball scene, so I want to be able to loan this one out when necessary.

Thoughts?

Assuming it's brazed on and not epoxied.

Remove all the guts from the tubes so that all you have is the barrel.

Get a propane torch. Stand next to a work bench with a stack of rags on the bench.

Heat the gun body with a propane torch, being very careful to keep the heat around the base of the feedneck while holding the gun upside down (top of gun pointed down).

When the solder heats up enough, the feed will fall off and land on your stack of rags. The rags are there to keep the really really hot feed from bouncing off the workbench and landing on your feet (incase you do this kind of work in barefeet) Also.. make sure to wear any and all proper personal protective gear (Gloves, protective glasses or face shield, PANTS!, etc).

Hold on... I'm gonna need pants for this?! Dealbreaker.

Thanks for the advice! It does look like it's soldered/brazed so that should work nicely.

That's why I love this place!

Seriously though, I'll probably forget to wear proper foot ware and opt for sandals since I'm kind of a dirty hippie. It'll make for a great story either way.
