Any One Can Help Me On My Mr1?? I Bought A New Mr1 Recently And The Next Day Went To A Local Field And Used The Market And It Was Working Fine. The Next Day Cleaned The Marker And Disassembled The Marker For Cleaning. The Problem Is That When I Put On My Co2 And Tried To Fire Some Shots With Paintball In Loader It Didnt Go That Far. Its Kinna Funny Tho Cuz The Paintball Just Dropped In Front, And I Mean Literaly In Front Of Me. It Just Droped Like A Dead Duck. Can Any One Help Me On This Dillema?

make sure the bolt is right side up (hole down) and make sure that the buffer IS NOT IN FRONT of the striker.

Could be assembled wrong, or missing a bit, or tons of things, but I would probably take it back to the dealer to have it checked out, but if you plan on learning something about your paintball marker, try learning to field strip the thing yourself and putting it back together with the help of the MR1 manual.

Seriously, Spyders are pretty simple guns, with very few moving parts in them. Even a technophobe like myself can do it. Of course, if you're 16 or younger, I might have one of my parents help you out the first time.

I'm gonna go wit hthe bolt upside down theory, thats the only plausible way it'd do that, I've had the same problem, and with the MR1 bolt, its not hard to put it in upside down.

Thank-you for this thread. I know that it's very old but I'm new to the MR1 and indeed assembled the delrin bolt upside-down.
