View Full Version : MR1 upgrades

I tried searching, but couldn't find much???

I'm wanting to upgrade the internals, and the trigger(possibly electric?) but I have no idea what I'll need and where to get it:confused: . I've had it for several years, and since it's the first one I bought I wanna try to keep using in the woods, and for a loaner.

I have a barrel, and use a quick connect hose for supply, and wanna keep the outside pretty much stock. Any help would be appreciated!

Yeah, if you aren't wanting to change anything externally the only things really open are:

Bolt (Either Alamo or polished)
Polished Striker
New Valve/Valve Mod

I was thinking I had read a while ago about someone getting the Rocking Trigger to work just fine, but I never pursued it as I bought the full blown mechanical for just that reason. Plus it forces you to work on aim over throwing ropes of paint at shadows. If you decide to go outside the marker my two big suggestions would be a barrel (if you haven't already) and a regulator of one sort or another. They would go HUGE ways to consistency and repeatable accuracy....Just my thoughts though ;-)

I also have some questions about upgrading my MR1, which I asked on the Show Your MR1 (http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?p=258665#post258665) thread. Just spreading out so someone hopefully helps me. :)

i have a very similar set up as you and i have trouble with the marker cycling. i have only used co2 with a remote line. i was wondering if a new spring would help cycle or if the lighter internals are playing a role in the cylcling of the marker. also which regulator/stabilizer would be the one to order from palmers pursuit. they have a direct stab i was looking at and i believe i can use it as the front grip. anyone know if this works?
