Just the markers and a mask right now. I'll add the other gear when I get a chance.

I recieved my new MR3 today. Well it made to my basement before I started modding it. I got a direct feed qloader setup, solar powered red dot scope and a customed hair trigger mod (props to ViperX). Check the photos y'all...


So there is she is, but wait there is more. The old faithful T68 Pieces got a bit of a reach out and touch you upgrade. Check it...

Looks like it's just uncut. Technically he should cut it to cut down the ball travel distance in the tube.

Actually I will argue that the hose is perfect. It is long and it is cut. But using the recurve in the hose keeps it very close to the marker and with as little hose sticking off the top of the gun as possible. The only way I'd do it differently is if I could replace the feedneck but it isn't worth it on my now backup. I finally got to put a half decent amount of paint through the MR3 today, 500 rounds, and a combo of semi eyes off, semi eyes on and auto and I never chopped a single ball and didn't have a single double feed. Can't wait to get some paint with a decent bore match though. The stuff I used was a tad small so I won't comment on the accuracy yet. It sure is a great little marker though.

It'd be nice if for the T68 the feedneck could be like flipped upside down.

MR3 is lookin good though, although I'm not a fan of the stickers on the T68.

not stickers, I painted it, I had never tried painting a marker so I went with something fun. hence the reason I call my t68 "Pieces"

That is the shortest hose route with your current setup. You don't want that much hose mainly because the more hose you have, the more balls it requires to push into the feedneck. Your going to have at least 20 balls in your tube that you can't use when you run out of paint in your Q-pod as were you could have 10. More paint into the marker...

Ace24, I tried that set-up when I first installed but I didn't like having it running up along the handrail. Also it doesn't matter how short or long your hose is as you prefill the hose before attaching the qloader. If you don't even in a short hose you will have some splat effects. We're talking messy. And once you break a ball in your hose good night. So once the hose is prefilled you are going to get 100 of your 100 shots off. I appreciate the advice, so don't stop any ideas you ever have on my gear.

I actually forgot that you prefill. I'm sorry haha.

Yeah I was looking at it and thought to myself... "Man... that doesn't look as nice."

I haven't played with my Q-loaded MR1 in a long time... so I forgot alot about it.
