The InYoFace offset I have just wasn't enough to put the scope out of the way of the feedneck (see attached photo links)
. MAN, that's disheartening to see your feedneck in the way...man that sucks when you plan your setup carefully only to come across another obstacle
*sigh* but I guess it's all part of the experience.
So...my solution is getting a longer feedneck. What do you guys think?
I heard, "JT 5.0s take angel threaded feed necks". That doesn't mean I need an angel feed neck or is it referring to the thread type?
And after much looking around, I'm thinking what would be a good high-rise feedneck for my setup???
(because I sure as hell am not mounting 2 offsets, and I have to keep the InYoFace offset, lol) The hopper is actually tilted rightwards because of the scope; the bottom of the Halo grazes the scope.
All I want is a visible line of sight for the scope, and unfortunately I don't have a 6.0 that has the high-rise feed neck
And about angel threads...how the hell do you get the feedneck out?! I brought it to this half-a$$ PB shop in my town Ajax and the guy said I'd have to strip the gun to it's body and either torch the body around the neck or put it in an oven to loosen the seal on the threads. This would be the part where I look at him like "are you on crack?". I dunno but I sure as hell am not doing that to my gun nor am I taking this guy's shady advice.
This is my last upgrade I'm unsure of and I really appreciate everybody for their input and viewing.
