I'm not sure if the MR bolts are of the same design as other Spyders, but if they are then you need a top cocking bolt. It will have the little space for the detent. The advantages to aftermarket bolts are really for people looking to get more efficiency. They are lighter and have better air flow. Be warned, a new bolt will raise your FPS, so chrono it as soon as you can.

There are currently no aftermarket bolts for the MR2. I haven't seen any yet, and the bolt is a whole new design.

Well, if you're just wanting to get away from the ACS portion of the MR2 bolt, you could always try to get an MR3 bolt, as it's a solid delrin bolt.

yeah ive seen a lot of top cocking "spyder" aftermarket bolts but none had the MR series specifically listed as compatible. but in case you wanna keep your eye out heres the spyder aftermarket bolt manufacturers ive found so far. note these are all for top cocking pilot compatible ones but generally they also had rear and side cocking models for spiders as well, so eventually it stands to reason theyl include mr series.
new designz, shocktech, orange, bandit, core, 32 degrees, evil, check it, force III, trinity
im sure theres others but theres some to look into. they all make "spyder" bolts and eventually some of em gotta start makin an MR series bolt.

MR1 bolt on Alamo City PB's website will work on the MR2.
