Well what are you looking for?
If you want to go for a Mil-Sim look, pick up a Trinity 6 position stock.
On ebay they go for real cheap

get a clamping feedneck, you didn't say if it comes with a stock, if it doesn't maybe you should get one of those to.

how about a drop forward w/ on/off valve. or just a on/off valve for your tank?

will you use HPA if so maybe consider getting macroline

You cant get an ACS for the MR1, only ACP bolts.
But i think you can use stainless w/HPA slim

I never really had any problems with the stock bolt, i can honestly say that when i had mine i never broke any balls.

I wish i could take back the sale :(

I haven't had any chops with my stock bolt either. But the MR1 does pack quite a kick compared to most light electros... and the bolt is starting to chaff badly and will probably need a sanding.

I believe the idea with a new bolt is to balance it against other internal upgrades, ie springs, valves, new hammer etc... you will have to look into other peoples direct experiences.

Well it is just a daydreamers idea, but if it were me, I would get rid of the top cocking mill it for an old side cocking striker. then make soem wood furniture (i.e. the stock, a handgurad, and some grips if you are ambitious), make the stock an air thru, then add a single trigger frame. And to top it all off maybe a sling, scopre on a riser, and a flashlight.

Well now that my dream is over, get a single trigger frame, it looks a million times better, just look on the BST forums, also jump over to MCB (http://www.mcarterbrown.com/) and look for one. if you are lookign to be a "sniper" you could get an MR3 raila dn a red dot. other than that just look through the picture thread, adn do some google searches, find something that you like and get similar parts as that person. Forgot to mention, polish the ionternals, drill the valve, take out the venturiif there is one, and you already have a spring kit and barrel kit so you should be fine there.

you say you want the sniper look right?
maybe look into a handguard, like what i have on my gun.
another cool thing about handguards is that you can attach a rail that you can put a bipod on.
im getting the rail with a vertical grip for my MR2

you dont nessissarly need a shroud for a bipod lots of them are barrel mounts I wouldnt use a shroud for a sniper kit because I am getting a 7 peice empire barrel kit to and the shroud would make it hard to switch backs. then on the tip im gonna put my apex tip.
