Hi, I am new to the forums and was just wondering if I should upgrade to an Alamo City Delrin bolt for my Mr1?
If so, how will it make my marker any better?

An Alamo City bolt is pretty good. I don't see a reason to upgrade it.

yeah, I have heard Alamo City bolts are good.
do they do anything to make the gun better though, do they make the MR1 quieter, more efficient, or help in any other way?

He's asking if he should upgrade from the stock bolt to it... *sigh*

Yes, you should. I have one in my MR1 and am very happy. It improves air flow, quiets the gun down, is lighter (less recoil), is smoother riding (delrin against metal FTW. Metal against metal FTL.), and you only have to lube the O-rings.

For the price, you can't go wrong.

Ok, thank you. I was about to buy one but I wanted to make sure I wasn't just wasting my money.

Nope. Most of the things from ACP are well worth the money.

Is the lowblow one necessary?
