I am finally getting around to upgrading my MR1. I have done my research and think I have found/bought what I need.
I need any other advice any of you exp players may have on high end upgrades.
Here is what is going on it:
ACP 3 oring Bolt or Orange Speedwave Bolt
Fasta 18v (already have one) OR Halo B Or Vlocity or Qloader
Barrel (SP A.A. , J&J full tilt etc.)
I want to go HPA eventually with this gun but want to get it all tuned up into a woods machine before I drop more $$.
I would like any other suggestions that you may have. My goal is a reliable marker with at least a 15 bps capability on semi. Thanks for any ideas.

you have the same plans as me. not that i will ever be able to afford it.....
CAMD frame, qloader, J&J (already got it) and HPA
to me, thats the perfect MR1... :up:
(maybe with a cool shroud and stock too :D )

Do you think you will add tactical gear some day?

Probably not to much. Maybe a red dot or something but no stock or shroud. I love the way my MR1 looks and I need it to be as light as possible becasue I play point alot. :cool:
As far as cost goes to get it set up. You should be able to find the CAMD frame, Barrel and ACP bolt for around 100$ if you look around. The loader and HPa tank are what will set you back.

first thing you do is switch to macro line

I was going to ask about that. Do I need to change anything with the gass through stock if I do that? Have you ever had any problems with your macro breaking? I can be a hard playing, down in the dirt baller and I need durable stuff that I can rely on.

I've never had any problems with it. All I play is woodsball, and my markers take a beating. With that gas-through, you have additional protection. It will be fine.
The biggest reason to use it is that it makes it so easy to swap out the other parts.

Right, I am going to put a drop forward on it so that would help a lot. Round how much am I looking to spend on the macro? Pretty easy to install?

Where did you get that CAMD Frame?
04-26-2007, 01:16 PM
Check ebay for the frame. I bought one new from firstcallpaintball for $45.

i get every thing from www.actionvillage.com.macro what ever you need.
04-27-2007, 08:19 AM
Yeah Ebay is the way I went too. I got mine for 45$ as well and at that price you almost have to get one.
Anybody think of any other basic upgrades that I'm missing?

ak47 expansion chamber?

Not really the look I'm going for. Think small and compact.
