As the title suggests, my feedneck on my ULE body is stuck. :facepalm: I feel kinda stupid right now. I have tried in vain multiple times to get it off, but it is not working.

Whats the best way to get it off? I don't want to use a wrench, because that would scratch the feedneck. Are there any tricks to do this? this is my first gun with a threaded feedneck.

Thanks for reading and any help would be appreciated.

You could wrap it with felt before trying the wrench...? No more experience than you, man! Sorry :(

@cdrinkh20Thanks for the quick reply and the advice. I will try that soon.

any other help is majorly appreciated, especially if someone has intimate knowledge of the ULE body... (although its not complicated whatsoever)

Is it the stock feedneck? Regardless, wrap it in something, get a wrench and give it heck. Thats what I had to do with mine.

Yeah it is. And you might recognize it. It took me two times playing with it to get it stuck.

Thanks for the advice, and I will do that today.

Its a nice piece. I love it. Odd that the feedneck is hard to take off, but its overall a great body. Thanks for keeping it in such great condition, btw.

Invest in a strapwrench; trust me.

In a pinch, you can try clamping the feedneck down on a hopper and twisting it counter-clockwise. Don't use wrenches, vices or other tools on something that you don't want to permanently damage.

yea the wrench will still damage the feedneck through a cloth. I even had a folded over rubber grip thing for jar lids, and the wrench still scratched through it. The hopper idea works (but then you cant get it off the hopper), but otherwise you gotta get a strapwrench. If it happened once, it'll happen again, so invest.

Why wouldn't you be able to remove it from the hopper? It's a clamping feedneck... Unclamp it.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Also, @riddler, its not a clamping feedneck, but that part never gets stuck anyway so it doesn't matter.

Haha, I'd never even heard of a strap wrench - but I like it!

Totally had to use pliers to adjust the sear pin in my Mag... scratched the hell out of it but DAMN it was stuck. I figured out though if I moved the pliers to a certain position they weren't nearly as sharp so stopped scratching and started actually turning it. :angry:

Oh d'oh, stock feedneck, not a clamping one. If you can't strapwrench it out, hell with it, just destroy the thing getting it out! Heh.

As for sear pins and other small items that you don't want to scar with pliars, I've always had good luck thoroughly wrapping them with masking tape before using pliars. That way, the pliars just dig into the tape.

I took mine down to my local ACE hardware and just asked them to do it for me

I am asking for a clamping feedneck from CP for christmas. Are automags angel threaded?

Hmmm masking tape. I never even thought of that. Thats a good idea for future reference.
