Thread: Springpheed ULE mag

  1. #1

    Springpheed ULE mag

    Wanted to show off my springpheed ULE mag.
    Was going for super light and it worked.
    Modified Apocalypse gen3 springpheed for the mini - ULE body with dual detents and Empire feedneck adapter - Luke's UL rail - CF frame - FBM wedge - and soon-to-be changed ASA (going with a CP)

    I'm working with Apocalypse to modify his design slightly for the mag platform, but this works great, is super stable, and feeds amazingly well.

    Can you show a close-up of what you had to modify (you posted elsewhere chopping a feedneck then drilling and tapping it) to make the SpringPheed work? Late last year he was still working on a universal adapter/model that Mags could use.

    WS-
    The drilling and tapping was to put a phantom-style springpheed on a stainless body with the feedneck removed.
    That is a great way to do this, but it means your only choices for that mag body are now the springpheed or finding a phantom feedneck.

    This mag with the ULE body is a whole different thing.
    I'll try to get closeups later, but the new style pheed mount clamps the empire-style feedneck in a similar (but much stronger) way to the empire springfeed.

    Here's where she stands now:

    Thanks BC. Never owned a Phantom so was unsure of the exact mounting arrangement.

    +1 its good to see reference pics for stuff like this helps the other guys out.

    This iteration of the mount and pheed is ad solid as it gets. However, Apocalypse thinks we can achieve the same thing with just a capture ring at the tip.
    He's printing it up and I should have that setup to try at DDay.
    In the mean time, enjoy.

    Are the SpringPheed tubes plastic or ano-able aluminum?

  11. #11
    Ano'd aluminum.
    Here's Apocalypse's webpage.

    Just realized I never showed the "final" product.
    If someone is letting go of a purple x-valve or black ccm fittings, let me know.

    The guys on the phantom pages have me wondering if I should get a pump handle for this just as a "fake out."

    Has a hopper feedneck on it at the moment for my daughter's sake, but trying out a rail-less setup. May need to get some aluminum 45 panels and have them ano'd.
