I want to build a top-fed mag-feeding Shocker (likely an SFT, since they're cheap and have flat sides.) I'd probably remove the feedneck, then make a mount that clamps on and holds the mag in place, while depressing the mag's internal detent.
I'm really liking the looks of the new DAM magazines, mostly because they're double-sided, and come in multiple sizes; not to mention they are flat-topped, which imo would require a less-elaborate mount/magwell.
Am I crazy? Are there any glaring flaws in my logic that someone would care to point out before I blow a ton of money on a partsgun shocker and some DAM mags?
Any suggestions in how to go about doing this?
I'm going to try to start collecting materials; but I may not be able to start the actual build this summer due to my college schedule. Any suggestions in the meantime are appreciated.
Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.

I like the idea. What about RAP4/Milsig round head mags? I feel they would work better because the collar could get the paint down into the breach where the feedneck used to be.
Did you plan on making it FS capable? That would be amazing. A First Strike Magfed Shocker.

I think a Shocker would make a sweet platform for magfeed because it's so much quieter than other magfeds on the market; and even if it had bad efficiency, it wouldn't be an issue because I wouldn't be firing that many shots per game.
Edit: and yeah, I do think it might kindof resemble a Bren.

That, sir, is why I also have a pistol. If I wanted to use 10-round tubes, I would have done it already and not been asking for suggestions on going full-blown magfed.
Well you could just clamp something like a pvc pipe and line the inside with tape to fit on the feedneck, and then just use 10 round tubes, given that you said "Top fed mag fed"
I'm not looking for a cheap, halfway solution. I want to make a legitimate magfed Shocker.

That wouldn't look so bad if you chop it up. Take out everything but the very top of the mag well where the mag release is, about where it connects to the receiver. Chop off everything else, that way it won't look like a T8.1-Shocker conjoined twin.
Yeah, I see that rockstartactical sells the entire lower gripframe for the 8.1. I could just use one of those (since I have an 8.1 already.) It'd look retarded, but I kinda figured it would already.
EDIT: basically chop it up this much, and it shouldn't look too bad.

I actually have a tib mag with bad seals (which I'm too lazy to replace) that's begging to be used for this....

1. You should totally mag feed it and
2. put it in some balls out milsim shell and
3. strap everything but the kitchen sink to the rails and
4. then play xball with it.
