So I have a WGP 2000 RF cocker. I'm currently turning it into a Sniper. I have a problem though: I hate using plastic elbows, they always loosen up and break etc.

So I was wondering:
Are there any metal clamping elbows available?
Are there any stock class feed tubes that can be installed on a RF?
Is there a cheap way to convert it to VF?

Find a friend who owns a machine shop and offer him a case of beer to do the work?

Knock the RF off with a hammer. Drill and tap the body to fit a Phantom feed block. Pretty easy really.

I don't know anyone with a machine shop :(

Interesting idea. Although I've never done any real machining... is that tap/die (spelling?) something standard or is it unique? I'm not looking to spend a lot of cash on some tools for a conversion I'm only going to do once.

LOL! Hopefully that won't happen, but if it does I'll be sure to post a montage :o

I think I've actually decided to go with this:

Thanks to the info found in this thread:

I'll use that primarily, and just suffer through the plastic elbows when I want to use a hopper, or just switch to my other Sniper which is a VF.
