After using my MR1 for the fifth time, the trigger frame became loose which caused me to have to cock back the gun every 5 or so shots. I later realized that one of the holes used for the bolts that secure the trigger frame to the receiver, was stripped. :mad: I ended up just tie wrapping the gun together to make it through the day.

Does any one have any suggestions on how to fix it or is there somewhere I can order replacement parts from?

Thanks, I appreciate any help I can get.

I would call Kingman & see if they will replace it or fix it. You might have to pay, you might not. You could be out just shipping to them or shipping to them & new body.

IF you want to do the repair at home, you can drill it out, re-tap it & screw a Heli-coil in it so you can use the same screw. The screw size is M5x12mm
