View Full Version : Short Barrel for MR2

02-15-2007, 01:52 PM
I am looking at some short barrels for my MR2. Any suggestions on what works well with the MR2? Pics would be great too.

BTW, I am leaning towards the Armson 8".

The place I have been playing lately has 3 indoor fields which are very CQB. A 14" or 16" barrel gets in the way....

Stock barrel + tube cutter = short barrel -

looks nice and well balanced with the tank that way. Thing about a short barrel is, it looks nice but everyone can hear you shooting clear across the field. Another option for cutting a barrel is a bandsaw then a belt or disk sander. Something that would look cooler yet is to screw the barrel on, mark top dead center of the barrel then cut the barrel on a slight slant with the bottom slightly longer than the top -

I was thinking about using the pipe cutter I have around here and then porting the barrel to cut down the blast from being a shorter barrel.

Hey Boost,

What all did you do to switch the tank around like that? Longer braided hose? New drop or did you just turn the stock drop around?

A dremel can do wonders if you have steady hands.

Pipe cutter is probably the best way to go for a perfectly round cut if you go this route.

Here is a link for a shorty barrel that will fit any of the MR series guns and IMO one of the best barrel companies around.


The shortie barrel is called the Tooth

Unless you like spending tons of cash for a barrel that isn't any better than a stock cut, I'd not spend $60 on that one lol. What teh heck is a fin for $20 more? -

02-17-2007, 03:06 PM
yeah, the most I'd pay is the $20 or $30 for the shorty on RAP4.

the stock cut barrel actually shots very nice. I can peg a empty tide bottle every time about 40-50ft out.

someone here should buy the 6 inch barrel from rap4 and then let me know how it performs. ive been thinking about buying it, but i dont want to spend the money and it not perform as good as my stock barrel or jj ceramic.

If you have access to one, a Lathe would work best.
