Its not just that is small, its really wimpy. Plus there is no use for iron sights on a paintball gun IMO, and the mad the iron sights on the thing look really lame. The overall construction of the marker is ok, but stuff on it is so out of perportion. But thats why the added all those rails i guess.

Also on a side note what kind of drop forward would i use for this marker? Atm i can only find the non standerized ones with the off set screw holes.

EDIT: im trying something crazy for a new carry handle, i shoud get it in the mail here pretty soon. I was doing some research into mods for other guns, and found out that the g36 tip X7 handle from RAP4 is mounted using only picitanny rails, is the propper length and is a little less the 2" tall so it "should fit" and it has a indented spot where the cyclone feed on a tipp is, so if placed propperly it wont interfear with the rotor hopper i have. If it fits ill post some pics of how it looks.

I've thought about getting the G36 handle... but to me it's a tad too long for my taste. The only other handles I can find are M4 style... and most of them go from having a weaver rail which is 7/8 to weaver 3/8...

as far as the drop forward... you'd probably have to ask some of the other guys with the rest of the MR series.

lastly... anyone shop from ANSGear.com? They discontinued carrying the MR4 and states that they are no longer being made along with the Stormer .50 cal... other sites still carry and sell them... I wonder what gives.

The weaver rails are universal, ive never herd of the different sized weavers. The MR4 has picitanny rails on it thou which should be able to mount any wever rail device. If it had weaver rails THEN you would have to pay attention to what you bought cuz a picitanny device can not mount to weaver rail.

I dont like m16 handles, i seen them way to often with being a service member, but the only make so many options and i dont machine stuff so my options are very limited.

And ANSgear i think they just stopped selling them because no-one was buying them. I has to special order my mr4 at my local shop. They are still very new, ant the mr1,2,3 are "proven" to work. And after looking for an MR2 for a while, at fields and shops thier considered a rare treasure especially if they have eyes. Kingman is just not as popular as when i first started with my imagine 5-6 years ago. I've let people shoot my spyders before and they are always surprised at how well the can perform. Its just not a common fact, people prefer tipps, cockers, whatever is the flavor of the month. Hell at my current field i see more angles then anything.(besides rentals, always tons of those). Spyders have been cursed, being labled as low-end. when thier just as good as many other markers out there.

hmmm.. I always wondered why sellers on eBay usually listed items with picitanny/weaver rails... so I assumed that they had either names... so yeah I have a RAP4 offset that has a 1 inch offset that I was going to mount to the handle but found out when I received it, it had the smaller weaver mount 3/8 so I couldn't mount it. It's like what the Tippmann A5 has, I think...

Thats news to me, im sure that they make a weaver size adapter. i Think 7/8 is the standard thou because thats whats on a m16a4 and most hunting gear, and thats the size of a picitanny. So i guess that tippman just has odd equipment :P.

hello all, i notice that most of you guys have found a stock that would fit the MR4, i try to look up the same stock or something similar but i'm not sure if its the same one or not. So if someone can help me out i would appreciate it thanks. Here are the ones i looked up so far:

http://www.rap4.com/paintball/store/tippmann-98-custom-carbine-buttstock

The spyder one is actually on the way, i ordered that thinking that should be no problem but just want to confirm with people that has an MR4 already, thanks again i really appreciate it if someone can help me out

Any stocks that fit a MR 1 or 2 will work on a mr4, the only major modding diff's between mr4 and mr1 is the bolt is of new design, the valve
(as is marketed) and the rails.

The non mr spyder ones, go behind the stricker assembaly and have you FPS adj on em, they will work on a mr4 but i like haveing a mr series one because its stops dirt and stuff from getting innto the bolt assembaly.

Got the new rail and a g36 tip on my lapco barrel. the rail was a bit tricky to figure out and im still working on it to be truthful. It amkes my hopper sit a little higher then it should giveing it a less secure hold on the feedneck( plane to fix that with some PBC pipe) and the get the rail where i wanted it to use the hopper to hide teh spot for a cyclone feed. I had to push the rail back farther then it should, so there is a gape in the back( currectly filled with foil and some other halfa**ed materials will get a piece milled or make one with some moddleing equipment eventually)

Im still deciding on how to paint it, i also decided to leave the mag. Its wimpy but if fits on there and it works as a fake mag without me having to make major mods. Anyways for the paint i was thinkin leavin it base black and putting tiger stripes on it,3 color pattern. Maybe Black, olive drab, and a dark red, will be using airbrush on it thou.

And that thing holding my marker up is a paint hauler.....i was lacking something better so i improvised, the handgrip is the only thing holding it on there

found something that may work for your hopper and the rail fix...

https://www.ansgear.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=EVILCOCKERSMOKESTAC KBLACK

even tho it states that it's for a cocker... I found that it's a universal part. I bought the one for the Spyder and found that it's for other spyders where they "slip on." The down side to it is that it raises the hopper another inch or two but it does have a secure grip with 3 rubber o-rings inside of it to keep the hopper from moving.

It's like what the Tippmann A5 has, I think...

Just to clarify on the weaver/picatinny thing...
True weaver rails have much more space between the slots on them than picatinny rails.
True picatinny rails have the same spacing as the ones on the MR4, but don't actually have material in the along the middle, so there's really jsut a series of points going down the sides of it (look at the rails on the Opsgear UMP, HK416 and SAW shrouds)
The rails on the MR4, and many other markers which are now common (X7, 98 Platinum, BT markers), are really weaver-styled picatinny rails. I guess it's acceptable to call them either or, but they're closer to picatinny.

A 3/8" rail is usually called a dovetail, and is small than a weaver rail, which is 7/8". The original MR2 has a 3/8 dovetail on the raised sight rail. It's not as common on paintball markers anymore, though the A-5 has one as do original Tippmann 98s.

Lookin good... I might have to consider picking up one of these things.

Is the e-frame stock, or the single trigger mech frame?

I wondered if an eframe would fit. I have a rt off another marker. Does anyone know if it would match up on an mr4?
