Review: First off, I am not sure why this feed neck is listed as a WDP product, to my knowledge this is the A+ Paintball clamping feed neck.

I got one of these in an A+ cocker body kit, and it's a very nice-looking feed neck. The height is about perfect and the milling is pleasing. It's a little sharp on the edges inside, but IMO that helps "grab" the neck of the loader. Adjustability is good; I fit both my old Revvy and my Egg2 on without any sanding or other gymnastics. The finish (anodize) is acceptable, but not quite as thick and glossy as some others I've seen.

The tool-less design is the main reason I use this neck. There are occasions when you need to take the loader off when you're not at the bench.

The downside: the original feed neck I got had a problem with the threading (body side). The threading is already a little thinner than other necks (particularly the CCM I tried), so I think tolerances stacked up and my original neck didn't thread properly onto the body. It ended up stripping. I sent it back to A+ and it was replaced free of charge; good customer service!

My replacement threaded in okay and it is now functional. I am pleased overall with this neck. One little niggle -- paint can get up in the threads between the clamping collar and the neck, and it's a bear to clean it out. It doesn't really bother me much.
Conclusion: If you get one that fits right off the bat, you're all set. If not, A+ will fix it for you! Recommended.
