Change my mind: About to saw off a SL-68 II's feed neck

So I have the SL-68 II with an old style feed neck that either requires a Hopper With Ridiculous Height (due to adapters) or jams (due to different adapters).

One thought I have is to add a bit of picatinny and use bt-4 feednecks like I've done for my pro-carb

The other thought is to drill and tap a hole that I could use for CCI Phantom adapters.

Does anybody want to convince me not to/want to trade me a sl-68 with a broken feedneck to use instead?

I think I have a broken one, but shipping the two would probably be more effort/cost than they're worth (and I may want to do the exact same mods to this one, lol).

I could at least dig through the box and see if there's a spare broken body, then you could save your good one.

I've had good luck with cpvc fittings. I believe this is a 3/4 x 1/2. I drilled it out so a ball could pass through. the 1/2" needs a little sanding to slide nicely into the feedneck. the 3/4 needs a green cap from a 10rd tube, just dremel the top so a ball can pass thru.
you can use 10rd tubes or twist in a phantom tube.

Probably doesn't matter now, no spare bodies in my horde. 1 sl68ii with a broken feedneck, that one's for me.

If it makes you feel any better, I just unearthed about a dozen non-broken sl68ii. There's no shortage of them if you ever want another.

Lessons learned so far:

1) the magpul rail needs a bit sanded down so the paint doesn't stick on the way in

2) the rail needs to be slightly off center to the right for the paint not to stick on the way in

3) there is a fair amount of variance in where the center of the bore through the receiver is, from receiver to receiver

*** tangential thought ***

Has anyone tried tapping a sl-68 receiver to accept a threaded barrel?
