2011 Proto Rail question?

What's the best way to pull the stock feeder off this marker, I bought a new on but can't get the stock one off, ( I mean I can't get it off, not that it can't be taken off) Thanks for any input.

Try using a hair dryer to loosen up any adhesive or whatever is locking your feedneck in place, than use some elbow grease to unscrew it

Not AZN level price, there's not too many electro markers priced at the same level as the Talon.

If AZN's idea doesn't work -

Hair Dryer + Wood block and rubber mallet. Tap it firmly a few times. Don't over-do it because aluminum is soft.

After you heat it... put a wood block atop the feed neck, tap it (mostly gently) a few times to help loosen the threads. Then wrap one of the old school rubber mat jar openers around it and just torque your brains out.


If it doesn't come off after this - you may have to resort to destroying the feed neck

I've resorted to vice grips or a vice before. wrap the feedneck in rubber or leather first though, or it will scratch it up
