What do you think of it so far? I want to get the M-16 mag for it and I have the new feed neck pre ordered for it also. It shoots really well and the barrel added a little distance but isn't anymore accurate than the stock one. But I thought it looked good. http://img126.imageshack.us/img126/979/mr22es2.jpg

U still can have the military look cause Bt has The M-16 apex barrel (http://www.actionvillage.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/DisplayProductInformation-Start;sid=CeVkpVqRED9k2h5-Z1ukDVA3dy2YUYPbQa0=?ProductID=IcjAqArbWt4AAAEMNXf 6Yfm0)

Copy cat.... :dodgy:

That is totally what I was going to do to my MR1 lol. I just havnt had the money to do it. Looking good though. I dont think I will spend as much money on looks anymore though. I'm going to do some self mods, get a q-loader, red dot, and probably drop the whole idea for the foregrip like you have. Idk... I'll see.

I've had this project in the back of my head ever since the MR2 came out. It's just taken all this time for the after market parts to start showing up. Hopefully it will look totally M-16 by the end of the month. Besides Sara needs a little competition(Bamf)

But it may require some mods.....That's the one I was originally going to go with but I didn't want it hanging from the body, so I got the AK mag to fit flush. There wasn't that much difference between the two other than the AK mag has a little more curve to it.

Does the MR2 have a vert ASA, or is the airline attachment the smaller metric airline threading?

If its standard ASA, that Mag looks like it'd fit.

Anywho, looks awesome... Hope it shoots well!

I think all the M-4 , M-16 kits for the Tippman A5 or other markers does not look as good as the ones built with the mr series.

Just compare:
Automag: http://www.rap4.com/images/68customs/m4automagcustomright1.jpg
M98: http://www.rap4.com/images/tippmann/tippmann_98_custom.jpg
A5: http://www.eastgatedesign.com/images/newM4MAX1.jpg

Even if the A5 has every piece to add to the look, like the mag kit, its not close enough because the main body is designed too similar to a MP5 and G3 series.

Your ( MR4 ) is the coolest and most M4 looking i ever seen, congrats.
Im doing the same thing with my MR1, and ill be posting image as soon as i get the pieces, but it may take a few weeks.

A friend of mine is planning on making his MR1 look like a Thompson smg, i think it will look great.

Anyone has some other gun kit ideas?

My bad :( I had looked for them a few months ago with no success, I'll check it out again.

Although, IIRC they are more expensive than plain Apex's..

Grandpa, I'd really suggest a remote. It won't look nor feel right with a tank on and having a stock. I've used the standard MR2 stock w/ a tank, and it just doesn't look or feel right, and it's very heavy. Although, I haven't gotten a remote yet.


Anyway,

I don't like the Trinity mag....I'd like if it wasn't an x-chamber, cause then it messes w/ regs.

OMG!! That is the coolest thing I've ever seen. That inspires me to modify my MR2 the same way, well similarly. I didn't know they made so many mods for the MR2. I'm glad to know the BT M-16 barrel will fit in the shroud, so I assume the M-16 Apex will too.

I had to take mine off to adjust the front sight. There's an adjustment on the back also to get everything lined up as well. As far as accuracy it's OK.

Hmm, so may be you could put different barrels in it?Unfortunately no. The barrel has a weird step in it where the back locking collar for the hand guards attaches.:mad: That's why I got the new hand guards.

bigben6
10-31-2006, 01:05 PM
So I couldn't put my J&J Ceramic 16in inside the grips? Also, where did you get the sight rail and did anything take much modifing to make your parts fit the gun?

Also, where did you get the sight rail and did anything take much modifing to make your parts fit the gun?Your J&J will fit inside the hand guards you would just need to figure out a way to build up the back of the barrel so the hand guard cap would fit. It's a little bigger in Dia. then the front sight and cap. The only part I had to have machined was the barrel to get the mock silencer to fit. I'll be posting up some new pics when I get the new feed neck on it. I got most of my parts from RAP4.com and Octane gear.com

Heres one of my setups:
http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2006-10/1221131/2006_08290069.JPG


I know it would look better with a magazine of some sort, but hard to justify the cost when you aren't using CO2....


I also play with it stripped down to just the qloader, no stock, no sights... thats for when I don't want to carry all the weight.

pbgrandpa
11-01-2006, 06:34 PM
Nuwisha, I really like your setup-looks great. I wanted to get the Q-loader but had a new Reloader B and just could'nt see buying another loader. Did you have any trouble with double feeding? I should have pics up by this weekend of mine all finished.You have a great looking marker.

Ace24
11-02-2006, 12:00 PM
I'm trying to figure out what I am going to do witht the MR1 project I am planning on. The shoulder stock that you have PBGrandpa is the kind I want to get. It sits so nicely and flush on it. I am trying to figure out how I am going to do the red dot sight though. I might have someone mill out the side and put a side cocking bolt in. Wich would solve the problem completely, I could put the same raised sight rail you and Nuwisha have and avoid putting in a rear cocking bolt.

The problem is, would any side cocking bolt fit in the MR1? Spyder bolts all are the same in diameter right? Just different designs/airflow?

Ugh. See if I get the MR2, I can avoid the bolt problem. But I dont want the E-trigger. It is so moist, and rainy here, and there is always mud. I get belly deep in the mud when playing and when I was using my Fenix for it, mud would get in the e-frame and I fried the origonal board.

I could get a MR2 body, MR1 trigger frame... but I like the MR1's body design better. If I got the MR2 I would to buy one of those AK-47 Expansion chambers, then the Q-loader wouldnt fit around it. I would have to mill into the chamber. UGH!

So complicated. So confused... Maybe I'll just get my machienist friend to make me a custom rail similar to the MR3's.

Maxx-Damage
11-02-2006, 01:50 PM
Ace- Hold all of the MR guns and see if u even like them. Im considering getting a MR1 as a back up gun and getting the red dot scope witha raised mount. ANd for mounting the Q-loader get a Direct mount and not worry about the mounting issue.

pbgrandpa
11-03-2006, 09:42 AM
Well I think i've finished with it but you can never tell. I decieded to go with the remote because it's just too bulky with the tank on the gun. The machine shop did an excellent job turning the barrel for me and everything fit perfectly. The SPPS feedneck was also a perfect fit. KUDO's to the guy's there as well. It's been fun doing this project and I think the end result turned out pretty good. What do you guys think????http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/6617/assault1nk9.jpg

The final (near final?) version looks great! Love the surpressor!

Yes I did have problems with double feeding. Solved it by using an MR1 bolt.

Later i'll probably get a bolt and striker from alamocitypb as part of a low pressure project.

Can you do a test. Try to rotate the feedneck so it points down. Do all the holes (yeah I know one of them is missing) line up? Will it feed?

Haha it's been along time since i've been here. I've been hittin the gridiron the last couple of months. I don't mean to make ya'll jealous but, i shot this gun and I'll be the first to tell you that i've never shot anything like it. It's a lil uncomfortable to hold by the barrel , but holding it by the magazine was better. This thing has to weigh as much as your standard military issue assault rifle. A remote is a must for it. We joked about how it sounds. It sounds jus like dropping a dime into a can. Overall this thing was unbelievable. Shot like a dream. You could knock a fly off a tree limb with it's accuracy. Don't know when i'll be back , but i'll prolly be reviewing one of my grandpa's guns from hell. I'll be adding this to my "most feared" list.

Don't forget that the Ion must have compressed air, it cannot run on normal C02 (unless it's anti-siphoned) otherwise it can destroy the marker.

Granpa, I'm just curious, have you considered removing the shroud and pulling your handguard/rail system closer to the main reciever? Since you do not already have the old handguard/grip. I see something in the position of the original handguard/grip but can't make out what it is from the pic.

I'm pretty sure your MR2 is the new standard to match. The next few months should prove interesting as we see everyone scramble to reach this level of modding.

Also I've been looking around a little bit - and I think I've seen most of the options MR owners have to create an M4 look. Its doable, and I'm broke!

I thought about removing the shroud but found a barrel that would fit so i kept it on. Besides i kind of like it. I think what your talking about is the elastic band for the laser on the hand gurads. It just hols the wire in place. I do appreciate your kind comments, but there are some other pretty nice MR's on the forum. Thanks again

But i didn't try it with the ACS bolt and the other dentent. I read up on the problems people were having w/the ACS and the qloader and just got the Alamo bolt to head that problem off. I'd just get the bolt and be done with it. It's not expensive. I'd go ahead and put the stiffer dentent in it also.

is there the same cut out in the alamo bolts as there is in the stock one so the detent doesnt get destroyed from the bolt? and if u get the alamo bolt with only two o-rings is it just the two mid-set o-ring, or does it have an o-ring at the tip of the bolt as well?

As far as knowing about the 2 o-ring bolt..I would suggest getting in contact with there customer support for i can't say. Just a note on the tore up dentent i had wth this bolt...I was doing some full auto testing with the t-board and ran 4 pods thru the gun. This could have been the cause of the dentent coming apart.

One question also the M16 carry handle does it get in the hoopers way? (cuz I have no intention of using the qloeader)

it would depend on how high your hopper sits, i believe the carry handle is about 2.5 times as tall as the stock sight rail is, so put your hopper on and guestimate (< lol not a real word) i dont believe it would get in the way of your hopper, but just make sure. and btw qloader pwns lol, well IMO, but i measured mine out and with the stock feedneck, an eggy3 and the stock elbow i would have about a .4 inch clearance between the top of the sight rail and the bottom of the hopper which would be fine.

I'm not sure I would recommend this unless you know what you are doing, but I used a hack saw to cut the groove. It's not perfect, but it works.

I used the saw to measure the depth of the groove and simply worked my way around the bolt. The initial cut wasn't wide enough, so I widened it by cutting around the edge of the groove.


doesnt break the detent with that oring ?

Not after 1500 cylces. I've used it on full auto with no problem. I did have to oil the detent and o-ring.

I just want to add that installing an o-ring reduced most of the blowback up my feedneck. BUT that was only after I reduced the pressure to below 600 psi. There was still alot of blowback on unregulated Co2.

I'll toss in another question on the trinity expansion chambers. Does the M-16 mag fit like the AK mag?

I use the rail riser from Opsgear - heavy and expensive, but raises the red dot sight to my eye level with my mask on. I've found other 20mm rails will work on the MR2 too - like the ones Glasher mentioned (tri rail looks awesome). Airsoft rails will also work - anything that fits 20mm M1913 MilStd rail - will do. But be aware of the allen screw that holds the charging handle in place. I had to replace mine with a flat head and filed down flush with the rail surface before it will accept the riser rail.


@-Mrpop - I think Pbgrandpa mentioned a kit he used with the Qloader a few pages before. It mounts to the side plates of the MR2. And yes his MR2 is awesome :D

he used the custom mounting kit found on qloaders website and what he did was take the side plate off on the right and put the qloader mount there instead of the plate, becuase the plates one the side serve no purpose. :D
