Started to put my 50 cal kit on my etek 2 and.... It doesn't fit.
The feedneck insert wouldn't go in the gun and the feedneck wouldn't go on

Did you try putting it in the right way forward? Did you take out your regular detents before trying to put it in?

Ya. I did everything right. The breech insert fit great as well as the bolt. Just the feedneck insert and the feedneck

Is the little slot in the top of the feed neck insert facing the barrel?

Nope, the insert sits in the body, they give you a whole new .50 feedneck.

more than likely they will drill a slot in the insert on one side, drill a slot on the other and it will fall out. the rest of the kit will come out then and they will warranty the damaged parts. the body should be just fine.

finally got it back a couple weeks ago, took a bit longer but they gave me an entire new .50 kit, this one had the same problem with the feedneck insert, so i took it to my machinist and we turned the OD down very slightly till it slid in and out snug, but i could jam my pinkey finger in it and yank it out, then put it on a polishing wheel to give it a nice shine and it easily slides now. problem solved. you can EASILY sand it down enough with sand paper seems like PE measured it before anno and the anno was just a little thick, this kit is the same color, blue inserts.

anyways, as far as i am mine works fine, though i think they changed some settings because the bolt isn't moving consistently.

edit: fixed the bolt problem, seems the o-rings on the bolt were making it just too tight of a squeeze, the bolt from the original kit (that is at my girlfriends house) doesn't have this same problem, but removing the o-rings solved the problem just fine, or atleast enough to get by until i get the other bolt. now i just need to get to walmart and grab another case to re tune this thing.

Why is your bolt at your girlfriend's house? You never leave your bolt laying around.

i was out of town at UNL going to school so she sent it for me and removed the bolt feedneck and barrel so that there was less to lose, by the time the gun had got back she shipped to USAF basic and i haven't been able to get her sister to let me in to pick everything up. and technically it is her ego.

By chance do you have a set of digital calipers? I am curious of the ID of your feedneck.

Sorry haven't been around a computer in a while. Oh btw I'm the guy that started this thread but for some reason I lost my original user name a while back and I can't get back in under that name, but back to the point. I picked up a ego 10 a while back and have been using my kit in it as well. It fits perfectly in it. I'm much happier now and ill b using it in a scenario game here soon.
Do you live remotely close to East Tennessee?

Tap it in and then when u want to get it out get Vaseline and put it on each side of the fedneck and get vice grips and pull!

I'm not saying this will definitely work but I would give it a try bro! <_<

ok... it's since been solved, but hey thanks for being an unhelpful smartass... also to get it to fit in the older ego's and eteks properly it was previously stated that the solution is to sand the outside to get rid of the anno and then polish it until it can be inserted and removed easily. also if you knew anything at all you would know you can't use vice grips to grab a flush surface.
