so are you asking which one to get?

yeah thats the only two options i see for the MR1 and i didnt know which one to go with. Or if they were even worth the money at all over stock.

I don't have any experience on the low blow, but when I was deciding which one to get for the mr2 I had read that a lot of people see a lack in accuracy with the low blow because of the back spin. I went for the regular 2 oring delrin.

well i called alamo citypb and they recomended the "low blow" bolt for what i will be using my gun for. all i play is woodsball. and he said it should flatten the flight of the paint. seemed like a nice guy and someone that wouldnt steer me in the wrong direction. So i purchases the "low blow" bolt along with a j & j ceramic 14" barrel. decent upgrades for my stock gun i believe

i heard its a good bolt. the only thing i dont like about it is that it slightly increases air consumption, but as long as you're not going low pressure, it shouldnt be a problem.

well soon i should be switching over to nitrogen/compressed air. with a regulator. so i should be fine.

Hell, just putting the j&j on there is going to do wonders for the MR1. That was the first upgrade that I did.

installed the "low blow" bolt and 14" j & j ceramic! 100% better gun now.
