I made some wood grips for my MR1 from a piece of stock of an old .303 British Enfield that was damaged. I think it is cool I was able to reuse something to make a part for a paintball marker.

I still have to stain and seal the wood but I think the effect is pretty cool.

The wood is from an old Enfield stock which was damaged by years of carelessness and a very stupid owner ( I rescued it ) ... I was able to salvage the rifle with a synthetic stock and lot of hard work. The butt-stock and fore-stock were unsalvageable, but I was able to use small pieces to accent my MR1.

dang sonik, how many spyders do you own???

but in seriousness, the grips look great...just wait 'til you see my finished mr2...I made grips for it too..

Yeah i just used the old ones as templates...now i just need to find some screws cause somebody lost mine:whistling:

if they are the same as the mr2, they are 4mm diameter with a .7 pitch, and are 1/4" long (I believe)...you should be able to go to a hardware store and pick 'em up, I did (for my mr2)...

4 spyders... 3 MR1s (one I gave to my bro, 1 you can see and one is in pieces while I fix the valve on it.) and an MR2
1 A5
1 Bushmaster SI
1 Brass eagle pump... from a waaaaay back in time. I can still drop a ball on my target from about 100 yards with it. simple but effective

yeah the screws i found were .50 pitch and M3 X 12 and they fit perfectly...they had to be a bit longer cause the grips are gonna be thicker than the original ones.

Pitch is the angle or slope of the thread. A coarse screw will have a steeper pitch than a fine thread screw.
