You might want to make your MR2 low pressure.

I wouldn't get the Apex. Period. It's inaccurate in all ways shapes and forms. The J&J barrels are VERY good for their price, but if you want a better barrel, go for a Freak or UL.

As far as the UMP foregrip, I'm sure that you can modify an A5 UMP foregrip to fit. Here's a link showing an MR2 with an A5 foregrip modded to fit (it's translated from French, but not everything translated, so beware!): http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://forums.scenario-paintball.com/index.php%3Fact%3DPrint%26client%3Dprinter%26f%3D7 7%26t%3D15450&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=7&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dmr2%2Bump%2Bhandguard%26hl%3Den%26saf e%3Doff%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26hs%3Ddem

I have the apex and i love it i have refered it to a number of people on this page who all love it as well (PM Intercerpter, or havok(SP) I cant remember anyone else right now and they will back me up) But the apex isnt for everyone, my sugestion is to get your hands on one and try it for yourself first then you will have a better understanding of it.
If you want to put it on your JJ go to the underground mod shop and buy the adapter for 25, or put a few wraps of electrical tape around the tip of your barrel it does the same thing. I have mine on my Empire barrel kit. The buetiful thing about the apex is its ability to be turned off you dont have to use it all the time. If you want more details on it PM me.
As for where to buy it i would start in the BST section of this club Vikingshadow has one on BNIB, IXM has one that he ran about 40 balls through but its vertually new and I think there are a few others. They are real cheep there and if I were buying one thats where I would get it.
Hope that helps with the Apex part of your question.

I highly suggest the apex it is an awesome barrel. Go to www.pntball.com and go to spyder barrels and look for the apex its 45.90 or something like that. There is also an underground mod piece that let's youput it on virtually any barrel. I am looking into myself. So just remener that website and look for stuff there they are reliable and cheap.

I have the underground mod adapter but i dont always use it I find electrical tape just as useful and it's cheep. You dont have to get hte adapter if you dont want to, I find absolutly no difference between the adapter and a few wraps of electrical tape.

you could start a new project, maybe get like a spyder victor or like a sonix and make it nice. you could do it easy under 500.

I think the easiest thing to do would be just give the money to me :) Really your best bet is to play with the mr2. Find what you don't like about it and go from there.

sorry i didnt get back to you..

I got it from my cousin.. you can get them from rap4.com but what i suggest doing if you DO decide to pick one up from there is to wrap the points on your barrel with tape so the set screws dont scratch up your barrel.

the stock is a Trinity M4 car stock.

$55 but you can get them on ebay for around 40

EDIT: OR: you could buy a package, BT apex+handguard, they sell em at Actionvilage.com

Really? Well does the curving and dive bombing work well? Does the tape leave a gunk on a barrel. Does a better barrel effect distance and everything?

Yes the barrels make a huge difference, on my progresive I gain about 20feet of accurate distance over the original apex barrel. On my Empire 7 peice barrel kilt i gain a few feet more but the all around accuracy is alot better. Keep in mind though it is still an Apex dont expect to be hitting ball on ball, but its definatly a huge improvment. The tape wont hurt your barrel at all or wont change the apex preformence at all it just lets you put it on any barrel. On a progressive the ones with the teardrop end you dont even need tape it just fits right on there.

Hmmmmm thats interesting I will have to try it on my friends 16 inch smart parts all American barrel if I can convince him it won't gunk the barrel.

even if it does how hard would it be to wash off???? But honestly i have never had that problem.

just rub on some lighter fluid if there is any 'gunk' left on the barrel, that stuff removes duct tape, tar, mostly anything.
