hey guys im new to the game.. last year i played a couple times with some friends but never had my own marker.. couldn't afford one, but now i work full time so i got myself an MR1. love the gun. me and a couple friends played some 3 on 3 and i had a blast.

now im looking to upgrade my barrel. ive been looking around and i really want this http://www.paintball-discounters.com/get_item_020567b.htm.. will this barrel fit my gun?

im also trying to put a little red dot sight on it. just for looks. but would i have to buy a rail for it or would i be able to just attach one to the gun? i saw that it does have grooves along the top so mayb it can latch straight on to there?

anything with spyder threads will fit your marker, and as far as the scope goes the reason you would need a riser would be because its top cocking and you would run into problems with something being in the way.

ahhh i see... anyone know were i can get a decent raiser, im trying to get the sniper look for my gun. im getting that apex barrel but in the future looking to abtually put the apex tip on a longe j&j barrel.. mayb 16" or 18".

I got this one for my MR-1 --> QD rail (http://cgi.ebay.com/New-QD-raising-mount-base-4-picatinny-weaver-rail-M004_W0QQitemZ220365831336QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_De faultDomain_0?hash=item220365831336&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A13 18|301%3A0|293%3A1|294%3A50) It needed a bit of work with a file to get it to fit properly as the MR-1 body rail is pretty snug..

longer barrels don't do anything but waste air.

03-04-2009, 09:34 AM
I just wanted the longer barrel to get the sniper look.. is there an adapter or something to put the apex tip on other barrels? im probably gonna go with a 16" j&j ceramic. but for now im getting the apex. anyone know how long that berrel is? i cant find the length in the description.

and thanks for the link sonik

i believe that you can put them on J&J barrels


03-04-2009, 03:11 PM
ok so im thinking about getting this http://www.paintball-discounters.com/get_item_010227e.htm .... i think by the looks of it, that i wouldnt need the rail raiser.. anyone have any experience with this or something similar?

03-04-2009, 03:15 PM
if you can fit it on the short ass rail that the mr1 has, you're a better man than i. i doubt it, and unless you cut your stock, it's not up high enough. get the mr1 rail riser, and the dovetail sight. and spend a few bucks more to get the one wit a warranty that covers paintball damage

03-04-2009, 03:22 PM
is this the right rail riser for the mr1 http://www.paintball-discounters.com/get_item_070580a.htm... and which one is the dovetail sight?

03-04-2009, 03:28 PM
yea and here

03-04-2009, 03:35 PM
ooh its not much of a price diff. the warranty is nice too.

here is a list of what im ordering tomorrow

apex barrel. the plain one.. mayb ak one cant decide still

rail raiser

dot sight

24 oz tank

remote line

and a harness for tank and 2 loaders

03-04-2009, 03:44 PM
i wouldn't do 24 oz. thats alot even wit the remote on. and get a 12 or 14 j&j and put an apex on it. its worth it. my friend had one, and the cool thing is, u can correct where the ball goes

03-04-2009, 03:50 PM
I was thinking about getting a j&j but does the apex tip fit directly onto it. or how does that work? the apex tip screws off of the barrel right?

03-04-2009, 03:54 PM
im not sure, but i think it screws on, if i had the cash,i'd buy one

03-04-2009, 04:00 PM
do you think you would be able to ask your friend see if he knows.. im really close to my budget with the stuff i got now so i might have to wait till next pay check for the J&J

03-04-2009, 04:03 PM
havn't talked to him in a while, he lives in colorado, and i don't have his number no more. but deff don't get the ak 47 apex. i hate aks, and it's a waste cash cause it doesn't even look right on an mr1

03-04-2009, 04:15 PM
oh ok.. its kool im gnna stick with what i got so far. i was planning on getting a j&j barrel in the future anyway

03-04-2009, 04:19 PM
yea, sounds good. i would suggest lookin for cheap ways to mod, this cost me 30 bucks

03-04-2009, 04:28 PM
were did u get that body kit?and that rail doesnt bother the cocking?

03-04-2009, 04:43 PM
had to make it out an airsoft gun, and i got a metal thing comin out the side for that
