It depends on how much you are willing to spend.
If you are going for the milsim look id spend the money on the MR1. If you wanted a more speedball oriented gun, then id definitely say to spend the dough on a new marker.

Well like Hossy said it depends on your style. If your into tournament or speedball then just get a better gun but if your more on the side of woodsball or scenario then go ahead and start upgrading your MR1.

You may want to rethink that.
How about you list out what you plan to get and we can make reccomendations?

i play woodsball but it kinda turns into a speedball sort of thing cuz we keep going to you can ttake anymore and the guy with the fastes gun usually ends up wining cuz it hurts so bad

if you still want the scenario gun stick with the mr1, but if you want it faster just get a new hopper and electronic frame

Check out the "Show Your MR1" picture thread and you can see all the different directions ppl have gone with their MR1.

MR1's are like Tonka Trucks, they never ever break. You have tons of upgrades for the MR1, sky is the limit. Go to the thread "Show your MR1" and get some ideas from there, as far as internals, go with a Derlin bolt, change the velocity spring, the expansion valve, polish the internals etc.. As far as barrels don't buy anything longer than 14", is terrible for mobility and i just a waste of air. Hope this gives you an idea...

If you wanna go REALLY mil-sim it'll take some elbow grease, but, it's worth it. Check my sig concerning the MR1 sniper rifle.

nothing wrong with using a tourny gun in the woods. i find they work a lot better.. and i get more for my money.

Personally I love the MR1. Having that rail on top opens up so many possiblity's for upgrading and the you can use those upgrades on other guns with rails to.

Best gun all around, for woods or whatever is the MacDev Cyborg. Efficiency out of the box is 1800-2000 shots per fill (68/45), and with a capability of a true 35bps firing rate.... you can lay down some serious paint!

I think their may be a slight price difference there bigred.

The "slight" difference in price is worth it all in the end, especially when you're spending less on maintenence (10k shots before it even needs to be ripped down a little bit), batteries (has damn good battery life, and you can use standard 9v's for it), and paint if you keep yourself reasonable (more accurate gun by FAR purely in the design aspect!). You'll find that if a gun doesn't cost you $400, it aint worth it at all. Get a decent marker and be done with it!

I haven't been able to find the tools so, yeah. I'll probably need a new way of doing it.
