View Full Version : MR3 pistol!!!!...?
12-11-2007, 04:48 PM
ok guys crazy idea here but hear me out.
imagination is a requirement.
I think DFSniper was wondering about such a custom pistol. Well here's a brainstorm.
Ok so remove the foregrip on the MR3, then remove the shroud, then remove the stock and carry handle if you've still got one on there. Keep the ASA and drop-forward for now. Put a little shorty barrel on the end(maybe a mock suppressor if that tickles your fancy). Hook up a remote line and BAM! you've got a one-of-a-kind automatic MR3 pistol (with eyes! lol). If you're particularly creative, I suppose you could find a way to make it 12g compatible.
The look of the MR3 body with all those parts taken off is just absolutely perfect for a Mil-sim pistol. I suppose it could work for an MR1 and MR2 but I haven't looked at those because I don't have one.
The only problem is finding a reasonably sized paintball clip or some other paintball source to hook on there somewhere, but a little custom work never hurt anybody(ok maybe a few people).
Thoughts? Technical problems I missed? Man I'm excited

Ok so this is KINDA what I'm thinking of. i just edited a normal pic of an MR3 in paint so it's not perfect.

thats not bad... but will you need to do any mods for the air line once you take the foregrip off? throw a 50rd hopper on there and you're all set!
12-11-2007, 05:19 PM
Not unless you want to have some other air source. A remote from the ASA would be fine for me but like I said I suppose it's possible for a 12gram or a little larger supply on the bottom of the Verticle C/A Adapter.

no, i meant the way the ss line fits into the body. from the manual i cant tell if it screws in, or if the grip holds it in place.
presenting the first ever DFSniper Chop-shop Customs production:
and yes, i gave it timmy covers, because the stock ones dont look like they'd fit without the grip.
edit: i forgot to add this, but slimming down the milling on the body would be a good idea because the body itself looks a little heavy.

yeah that's great. It would definitely look more like a pistol with and alternate air source though.
yes, the adapter screws into the gun so it could be replaced with something else if need be.

it would only be about $20 more than an ariakon pistol, but it has eyes and full-auto capability!
12-11-2007, 06:08 PM
yeah talk about ripping through the clips though. You'll need about 20 spare if you hope to sustain fire.

its like in the video games, if it takes you a whole clip to kill someone with a pistol, youre probably already dead... i wouldnt mind taking one to a scenario game. throw a 3.5oz on it and holster it and you'd be good to go. since it would take too long to turn it on and switch to full auto, i would do the response trigger mod, that way you get 2 shots per pull!

Here's some pictures I just took. Pretty close to those diagrams minus the hose.
yeah....going to have to figure out how to protect those eye wires.

is that a standard VA? thats even better!

cut the double trigger down to a single trigger
12-13-2007, 08:49 AM
this mod has been done... it works better with an mr1 though, put a single finger trigger frame and you can remove the hose and it's 1/8 standard thread into the receiver

It looks more like a Mac11 which would be AWESOME!

Wow. Very nice. How is the weight on that?

i dont know if this has been said but,were the air line goes just put a screw on it so air doesnt come off, then drill/tap a hole on the same altitude(lol i dk how to express) but on the side on the gun, then put in a 90* elbow(macrofitting)and just use those adapters for reg threads to 12gram, there you go enjoy :)

i did the pistol idea with my mr1. it was pretty cool only that i don't have a shorty barrel. for a hoppers i used my original qloader socket on it. it mounts a qpod with the pod pointing towards the shooter for quick pod changes. the qloader system helped give it a center balance and it was a pistol with a 100 rnds. don't know too many that can do that lol!! it was pretty cool. my only prob is i don't have a holster nor the patience to make a modified holster.
