Trinity Spyder MR T-Lock Feed Neck is what I am looking at to add to my MR1 and MR2. There are other brands also like Sundragon but you would need to get it in two pieces. There are also other brands which can be found in the upgrades sticky in the forum.

The Sundragon feedneck, while a little more expensive, is made by CCM. You pay for what you get.
Realistically, the only reasons to change the feedneck would be to be able to use a lower rise feedneck, dropping the hopper slightly, and to reduce the connections between the hopper and the marker, which can smooth out the feeding. It's up to you to decide if it's a worthwhile upgrade.

as far as i know these elbows are made of aluminum and not plastic like the stock feed neck. so if used properly there should be no breaking. I went throught a scenario game a few weeks back and had no problems with the plastic feed neck and it was put through a ton of abuse. Only weakness I can tell is over tightening of the screws. And as critical said the main reason I am looking at trinity is to lower the hopper profile some and remove the amount of connections between the hopper and marker.
