I'd say keep your MR1.

alright let me see wat other people say

I have a mr1 and love it, just get it and like a 14" J&J ceramic barrel and it will be awsome.

do you already have a victor? if you do just up it, get a new barrel,feedneck, regulator

I own both. Both are good guns. As far as upgrades I gotta say the MR1 is a bit of a dead end. No acs bolt available. If it were me I would buy a refurb Image in black for about $59 spend $30-$40 for a stock. You would end up with a nice mil-sim marker that has an e-trigger, and here are acs bolts made for it. Don't get me wrong I love MR1, it is rock solid. It just depends on what you want to do with it.

OK before anyone can give you a solid answer you need to tell us what you are going to use the marker for?

I am guessing woods/scenario ball but I don't want to assume.

Either way, why not keep what you have and use the green to upgrade it?

i like my tippmann but thats just my opinion

also if i get the mr1 on amazon i could get thishttp://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/B000LZLMP6/ref=dp_image_0?ie=UTF8&n=3375251&s=sporting-goods for $184.99

do you have an after market feedneck? if not it is a must, and an electronic hopper too

01-02-2008, 06:24 PM
use the "edit button instead of having post after post after post and do you want a pod pack too and do you need a mask and squeegee?

i would stick with the victor and just upgrade it. if you get an MR1, you'll most likely upgrade it at least a little bit, and the only REAL difference between the two is the body and the MR1 stock.

I'd say keep your MR1.
yo i dont have a MR1 i was asking if i should get the MR1 or keep my SPYDER VICTOR or get a tippmann
:) :D :cool:

yo but i want a stock and my gun is fallin apart

01-03-2008, 05:18 AM
well, if your gun is falling apart, look up how much it would cost for replacement parts and compare that to how much you would end up spending on a new gun. and you can buy stocks for the victor that are better than the mr1 stock.

01-03-2008, 06:13 AM
well if you are really having trouble with your victor get a mr1 but if your victor is ok just save your cash to upgrade your it

01-03-2008, 07:17 AM
i say if your victor works fine, keep it unless you want a better looking pantball gun, then i'd say go with the MR1, but NEVER get a tippmann. Tippys are pure EVIL. EVIL! (IMO):D

01-03-2008, 08:41 AM
if you already have a victor just upgrade it

01-03-2008, 05:25 PM
kramernator could you post wat your gun looks. and can you get a detachbale scope for the victor?
