Just surfin the net today, and saw on Xpaintball.biz's frontpage THIS:

http://www.anythingxtreme.com/Trinity-Paintball-Spyder-MR2-6-Stage-AK-47-MagazineExpansion-Chamber-P15238C1065.aspx

A replacement for the foregrip to make it look like an AK magazine. IMO this wouldn't look bad at all to add to your MR2, although I"m not crazy about expansion chambers and I don't know if it could negatively affect the gun. I'll also add that THIS DOES LOOK BETTER THAN THE A5 VERSION! Beacuse it actually will make it look like the magazine is in the gun, unlike the crappy A5 version.

I dunno about the dimensions, but this may also allow you to remove the shroud with out it looking so ugly after removal.

OK so it's not AMAZING, and the price is a lil high, but it's a start! It shows that accessories are starting to be produced! YAY!

i think fake magazines are retarded, a cool foregrip is all you need, for the expansion chamber, dont get one that looks like such a cheapy peace of crap with no function

for mods on the mr2, they should make a barrel extension out of the shroud, so then you can have the shroud, but still put whatever barrel you want.

i was thinking that they already made an adapter for the shroud. i never checked though so.....

no i dont think that they have made such a thing yet. if they do then they will definately sell one to me

so today I was thinking that if I had another MR2 I would be super modding it to look like a S.A.W. complete with a warpfeeder hidden in a ammo box.

Iim gone buy the mr2 this summer . In general what i should change,buy to make it run well. I have heard about the ball detent ,hopper and the j&j barrels what are the next things to upgrade? .

i'd love to buy one of those ak expansion chambers but i'd want to see it on the gun before i did because it could look really stupid.

so if anyone gets it please take pics and post them. I'd love to see it.

06-24-2006, 05:24 PM
if the detent is black, dont worry about it. if your just using semi auto, and not finger walking insanely, dont worry about getting a fast hopper, an aftermarket barrel for it is awesome

if you really wanna go all out, like i did, get a dot scope for the mr2, it works awesome

Tha'd be insane :cool: i think thats is a tippman exclusive feature. but i have never tried... i know you would have to take your feed neck off of your MR2. knowing tippman thoug, i doubt that they would share that sort of innovation. what about a qloader?

Actually I think it's possible the only "problem" can be to connect the cyclone to the air system

Take note, that is clearly photo edited, so it's not actually the MR2 w/ the Trinity mag.

Depending on if it looks better in person, i might buy it. theres more important things that i need though.

I really have no need for an expansion chamber cause i run off HPA, so why waste the money on cosmetics?

got a point there Eric... I do the exact same thing.. I LOVE HPA!!

06-26-2006, 03:53 PM
It's too bad it's an expansion chamber, it would look pretty sweet w/ a M-16 barrel front thinger, and w/ the fake mag clip...would make it look somewhat like am M4A1 or M16...that would be cool looking IMO.

You can mod the original one, just cut off the top part. Someone on the forums here has done it with out trouble.

I did that, but I think a few other did it too. It looks cooler IMO, and it works alot better. Some people think that it will break, but it is pretty strong.

HPA is also known as Compressed air or N2, or Nitro, and goes by many other names. The tanks are much more expensive than C02 tanks, but they are much more consistant (velocity and PSI output wise)

06-29-2006, 01:29 PM
I got my Dye Throttle for like 219.99 I mean you can get a cheap small one for like 90 bucks. But for a 68ci 4500psi tank your going into the 190's atleast and for one with a good reg. like the Throttles thats 219-250. Some of them have two regs on them and they are a good 300 something bucks. I'm telling you this though, once you put the money down for an HPA tank that is really nice... You wont ever get your CO2 tanks filled again. Just make sure you recheck your volocity with an HPA tank on it.

What does an expansion chamber actually do? Is it really worth $100?

The expansion chamber is used with CO2, what happens is basically it gives the C02 more time to expand, since while it is in the tank it is in liquid form due to high pressure, and become its gassious state, and trust me that liquid is COLD and NOT GOOD FOR INTERNALS OF GUN!!. thus givving more UMPH to the shot, and more shots per tank. It also comes in handy in the winter season, because CO2 is dependent on temprature, and weather, colder it is... longer it takes to expand, warmer shorter... is the basic, humidity and all that im not sure about. But with the HPA system it is simply compressed air, more consistent shots, but usually less shots per tank compared to CO2.

a little more background on CO2, its solid form is ussually reffered to as DRY ICE. and well the gas is just CO2, carbon Dioxide. The reason it is called dry ice is that the vapor point and freezing point of CO2 is so close it tends so sublimate, this means to go straight from solid to gas, so when it 'melts' there is no liquid and items stay cold and dry! Now its LIQUID form is only reached at a verry precise temp, or when it is under verry high pressure. and you will almost guaranteed never see it, because it goes to gas almost as soon as it comes in contact with air, which is usually warmer, and causes it to go to gas.

ya i kno this post was off topic, and i am the nerd here...lol... ive seen some other accsesories, not sure where tho.. ill try and find them again!

Do you guys find a big change when using hpa over co2?
as i said in earlier post, the C02 does get more shots off... but is less consistant in speed (always depending on weather and temp.), while the N2 (HPA) is a heck of a lot more consistant, but alas gets less shots off...

How does it cost HPA and what it do ? is it another type of gaz ?

My tank HPA tank is a Pure Energy 68Cui, 4500 PSI Fiber Wrapped, usually sells around $205, i picked it up for about $168,
You can get a simple steel one for around $80, cheapest i seen is $65. but i went with Fiber Wrapped for strength improvement, and weight reduction.
it is easy to fill, my dad simply bought a scuba tank and a fill valve, we simply attach and fill when ever we want. u can get it filled up at most places. IMO it was worth it. Usually better to be near the shore when u get the scuba tank tho.. dont kno too many places that fill scuba tanks up in kansas... lol

I found that sporting good stores only fill CO2 and not HPA we have to go to a pro shop to get our HPA tanks filled.

I wanted to get that except I don't like the fact that it has a 3-year hydro date, and that it has a PMI regulator, I've heard of problems w/ their regulators leaking and not having as good of recharge times. I wish it were Crossfire or something, tha'd be great.

If its a low fix tank you get more shots out of it because it runs at like 400 psi or lower they are made for low pressure guns. But I don't like PMI's regs. so I stick with the High Fix Dye's

Probably only if you remove the shroud. Because the only part of the barrel that would fit into the gun, for that barrel, is the threads.

No....that WILL NOT FIT the MR2 without taking the front part of the MR2 off permanatly, and modding/removing the front grip afterwards. I believe it WILL fit the MR1 though. Nice looking set up.

Hey Voodoo is back! Lol where ya been?

Isn't that what I said? IMO removing the shroud and replacing the foregrip isn't a big deal, I mean since it's easily reversable.
