PostPosted: Mon Nov 11, 2013 7:05 pm    Post subject: the Empire Universal Feedneck

Empire has released a stand alone clamping feedneck, based off the Sniper's clamping feedneck. this was released as a retro fit to already existing guns, that either did not have clamping feednecks, or if people want to use their design. so you can either use the nub provided or just use the feedneck on your gun.

i bought one yesterday and its great. it actually states on the packing that the nub, which screws into the gun, is ICD threads. that's right, it states so on the packaging. it matches nicely to a B2K4 swoop body and does not seem out of place.

it is an all aluminium piece. it comes in any colour, as long as it's black. what doesn't make sense is that the feedneck itself is dust, and the lever arm is gloss.

it is a low profile clamping feedneck, about the same profile as a full sized CCM. it has a thumb adjuster so its a tool-less to fit any sized hopper. the only advantage of the CCM, is that it can come in different colours, but that pales when compared to not having to have tools when you change hoppers(or even taking them off).

at $35 new, its not cheap, but its an excellent retro fit.

pics to come.

Interesting. They will have to offer more colors or make the price comparable to CCM's feedneck to compete in this market.

nope. just getting 2 colours for the Sniper or Resurrection was a lot for the bean counters(paraphrased from Manike, after his departure from there).

just having/offering a universal clamping feedneck is nice enough.

sorry for the delay, but here is the pic of the Empire feedneck on a Swoop body. as i said, the lines really flow well, and its a great fit. not only is it solid as a feedneck; its available everywhere you can get Empire products, but its a true "ICD" threaded collar, so you don't have to try Ion/SP clamping feednecks with bated breath. its a little pricey at $35, but hey, its a new product for everyone and ICD is included.

and yes, that's a ICD threaded Swoop. Cool

The feedneck I see on a few sites but nothing about ICD threading, so I guess the adapter is what am looking for a place that has it. ANS Doesnt AFAIK.

in the package, it STATES that the adapter is ICD threaded. i can get a pic of the back of the package that says that its ICD threaded. i am looking to make a slight deal in carrying a few of them, as i am trying to sell them on AO with custom Angel threaded adapters. i can easily get them for here. i will have to get like a half dozen for just myself, if not more. so one or 2 spread out on ICDO is no bother. the only thing holding this up is the capital i need to get in my hands. if you are interested, i can get one for you, if you don't trust the other sites(which i totally get, as they don't really list the feedneck, or list it as something different, which makes it hard to find).

when you say ... "ICD threaded swoop" are you talking barrel threads? If so I am jealous, I love ICD barrel threads. I wish they would have become the industry standard.
