    What can I do with this high hat centerfeed body?

    I got one of those old centerfeed mag bodies that had the non-removable super tall feedneck. I think they were called high hats back in the day.

    Anyways, thing is worthless the way it is. What the heck can I do? Can I get it threaded for cocker feednecks or something?

    what you can do is NOT CUT IT AND SELL IT.

    theyre worth about 75$ in uncut form and drop from there as theyre modified.

    so sell it and then but a ULE for 25-50$ more (depending on condition and what you get for the body)

    Nonsense. Stovepipe Emag bodies are not uncommon. Maybe worth $40-45. Heck KNM has three of them I think right now that he can't even get a buyer on. http://www.automags.org/forums/showt...nd-shadow-rail

    Cut it down, save the basket and Luke or someone can reattach it if some purist comes along and wants to do so.

    Now if it was a CF Minimag body or Classic RT body, I would say leave it alone and find an already cut one, but the CF Emag bodies are not rare.

    I figured it was like 5 bux, so either is a win

    I'm all for preserving rare items but within reason.

    true,

    I have mine at that price because two I are in new condition and tunaman's last sale price on them was 75-90$ and really don't care if they sell

    but cutting it is fine, regular cf emag bodies are not uncommon like OBPN said I have 4

    Which all it takes to make them new condition is polishing them up. And the $75-90 if full retail. I've picked up/sold 4-5 of them over the years and never paid more than $40 for any of them. I've also cut 2 of them...

    Man I must have paid too much for the one I bought for $60ish. It was cut and polished. Even worse was that it had the square bottom so it only fits AM rails. I am currently having a guy look into threading it for me. If it turns out to be an easy job then I might pick up a few of KNM's and get them cut too.

    If you cut it can I get the scrap part you cut off????

    Pretty please?

    You can cut the feedneck down and put an ego or 7/8 clamping feedneck on it. That's about it. What body style is it? Some of these are very uncommon and it would be a shame to see the feedneck cut off it. Post up a picture please.
