Okay so I'm pretty comfortable with my MR1 so I decided to do some upgrades..

-Smart Parts Tactical Barrel 20"
-MR Series Tactical Rail
-BT Bipod and Adapter

Are these any good?

don't get any barrel longer than 14 or 16 inches. i also would get the j&j barrel instead. the mr series rail should work good for mounting sights or red dots, what ever you want on there. as for the BT products i don't have any experience with them

I play a lot of woodsball and we have like a whole field of bunkers and trenches so I thought the longer barrel would help when I am prone trying to shoot through branches and thorn bushes..also I put a lot of wear and tear on my gun diving and such..and I figured I would have a good chance chipping the ceramic barrel

trust me there is a better chance of the 20 inch barrel getting in the way.

its harder to move and react with a longer barrel

Just as a heads up, your not allowed to bump non-sales threads.

As for the barrels, I would stay away from anything longer than 16". If your positive that the extra 4" will help you to shoot throught he bushes then go for it but you might have to raise your operating pressure.

The ceramic is very tough and used by many players. Not once have I heard of anyone chipping it.

I have the J&J 20'' and so far the best thing I have got on my gun

stick to a 14" barrel, sight rail is a plus, you'll never use the bi-pod
