my mr1 doesn't like the cold. it chops, misses, and runs out of air quicker. does anyone else have this problem, and if so, know how to fix it?

HPA tanks eliminate that problem.

yea, but im thinkin of goin remote, and that won't work. plus if you tilt the gun you get liquid

Can you list your complete marker setup?
A remote will help to not let liquid Co2 into the marker. A regulator like a Palmer Stabilizer will dang near stop all liquid from getting into the marker.
Lost my thought... sorry. It will come back soon.

mr1 wit stock bolt, 20 inch sp linear barrel ( i think the extra gas i have to use to keep the fps high contributes to the problem) custom g36c shroud, and i use co2

The longer barrel does hurt. It takes more air to push a ball that far & still get to 300fps. Just for kicks, chrono it with the 20" barrel then put a 12" on there & see how fast the ball comes out.
Co2 sucks in the winter or just cold period. If you lower your operating pressure from stock (600-800psi) to say 400psi it will help. Problem with that is your are going to have to buy several parts & tune the marker. The easiest way is prolly buy a Palmer Stabilizer, Female style, that mounts where your current ASA is or you could run a remote & mount the reg on the tank which will be on your back.

well if i put foam or insulation inside the g36 body could that help?

no that will not help and odds are you will only insulate it the gun and make it colder.
If you don't play in warm weather you WILL have problems with CO2, and an anti siphion, weather you use a remote or you get an anti siphon tube installed, will help with that problem
The ONLY 100% fix is simply don't use CO2 untill then do not complain and do not try to defy laws of nature.

lol ok. well i don't have the money for a remote or hpa or a reg now, so i guess im gonna have to wait for spring. what if i built a custom expansion chamber?

I just was at a scenario today it was -18 degrees celcius in the morning and warmed up to -10. I used my MR1 with HPA and never missed a beat. ALOT of people were using MR1s and none of us had trouble as expected one guy even tossed his 98 in the trunk and pulled out an MR1.
If you cant get HPA alot of Co2 users tape hand warmers on the tank and streach a cover over it.

yea. i tried that once, but i only had a bandanna to tie it on, and it didn't work so well. but how much would it cost to get the hpa equivalent of a 12 ounce co2?
