Review: The quality of machining and finishing on these feed necks is impeccable. I had threading trouble on another brand feed neck and used this one for a short time, and it was perfectly machined from top to bottom, the threads matched perfectly.

Functionally, this feedneck works exactly as expected. Tighten it up and go!

On the downside, this neck is fairly expensive. I paid $35 for mine.

The only significant issue I have with it is that you can't tighten or loosen it without tools. While the cap screw keeps a nice low profile, maybe a thumb screw of some sort would have been better for a couple of reasons. First, if the loader comes loose during a game, you can't easily tighten it down again. This is generally not a big problem, as you'll get a feel for how tight to make it after it happens to you a couple times. Second, if your marker is capable of jamming on a broken ball (however rarely), the inability to remove the loader and manually clear the broken shell could be a gamebreaker.

There's no reason I can see why a thumbscrew or other device can't be added after purchase.
Conclusion: This product gets a recommendation from me, however purchase it with its limitations in mind. One net point off for its drawbacks balanced with the excellent quality.
