View Full Version : MR2's consistancy

The MR2 isn't as consistant as the VS2 is it?

03-27-2008, 09:08 PM
Consistancy is based off of what you run the gun, bore match, and the pressure that the gun runs off of(depending on if it spikes or isnt high sometimes)

Ok, I run compressed air. Since the VS2 uns off low pressure isn't it more consistent?

03-27-2008, 10:57 PM
it runs off a lower pressure.
No, thats just what the gun needs to operate.
The vs2 is probably more consistent because of the regulator on the gun.

Except... it's not probably, it is because of the regulator. Even with the HPA, the gun can do whatever it wants with the excess pressure that it doesn't need that it has access to (Spyders stock really only need 600psi).

Should I invest in a regulator for my MR2?

I've always said that a regulator is one of the first upgrades a spyder needs, if not the first. However, with a regulator on your HPA tank, that's somewhat covered already (it regulates to the proper pressure, but a regulator on the gun can make it more "tweakable".)

Well, lemme help you to try to understand what Vike's saying. The regulator on the HPA tank will already make the gun more consistent than with CO2 as a CO2 tank will put out anywhere between 750psi and 950psi given altitude, temperature, and humidity. The HPA tank will always put out 800-850psi (differences in manufacturers) no matter where you are or what the temperature is. Thus, the regulator on the gun becomes a "secondary" regulator. Is it needed? IMO, yes. It will make your Spyder seem like a whole new gun!

Is a stabalizer the same as a regulator? If not would you reccomend both?

03-28-2008, 07:09 PM
The Stabalizer is a model of a regulator
Palmers makes it

03-28-2008, 10:17 PM
www.palmer-pursuit.com is the manufacture of the Palmer's Stabilizer regulator.

Ok, should I get a palmer stabalizer are they better than a CP reg? and what pressure would I want my MR2 running at?

I want my gun to be as consistant as this- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SPPlt2Zj4Q

Palmers > CP for CO2.

I'd start it off at 600psi with the velocity adjuster 2 turns in, and check it over the chrono as you start lowering pressure. When it starts fluctuating, bring it up 50psi and use that. Just get it in the general range of the FPS you need to shoot at the field, and use the velocity adjuster on the back to fine tune it.

I have compressed air so what is better?

03-29-2008, 10:28 PM
O, and does any one know if double feeding causes chops?

03-29-2008, 10:34 PM
CP and yes, it sometimes can if the second ball doesn't feed fully. Tighten down the detents and you shouldn't have that issue.

03-29-2008, 10:54 PM
That would be my chopping issue then. How do I tighten my detents? and I was reading reviews and the Palmer stabalizer sounded better have you tried both out?

03-29-2008, 11:06 PM
Nvm I read the CP reviews but is the CP in line regulator and the CP grip regulator the same thing?

03-29-2008, 11:34 PM
Erm, yeah. Same regulator. I own both and prefer the Palmers for use on a Spyder. Bit more rugged and it looks better.

To tighten the detents, screw down the detent covers some more.

Your detent is the little rubber fang that is under your feedneck. If it looks torn or worn it will need replaced. I would get bob long detents to replace them. I got 9 for $6 off ebay.
