Review: I was a little disappointed when I discovered my loader wouldn't fit snugly into the stock feedneck, so I decided to invest in this feedneck. At $35, it seemed like a reasonable price, and I have always been a fan of Shocktech products, so I went ahead and ordered it.

When it arrived, I eagerly swapped it onto my gun, threw on my egg, tightened, and... no difference. It would not tighten enough to fit my egg's feedneck. This pissed me off to some extent, but I realized I could wrap some electrical tape around the bottom of the egg's neck, then tighten the feedneck, solving the problem. Although it's a pain in the ass and looks tacky, it gets the job done.
Conclusion: If you have an egg, I'd advise against getting this. Other than that, it's a solid neck, so I give it a 7, for all the mental anguish it put me through.

Other than electrical tape, you can paste a thin layer of contact cement on it (or another type of hardening glue *don't recommend crazy glue as it cracks and flakes off*. obviously, wait until it dries and try sticking it in the feed neck. if it still slips, apply another thin layer. if it's too big to fit, you can sand it down again a little bit.

looks and works better than electrical tape
