Thumbs up MR2 tested at NJ NAM

well the MR2 had a solid trial
played in all modes (sinle/burst/auto)
the auto had to be recocked several times...but i didn't break a ball so that shows that the system is working
was shooting PMI premiums and PCS combat 68
both worked well
it even rained and that didn't stop the gun from working
i did put black duck tape around the seem of the handle grip cause there is some spacing
still the gun work flawlessly
had to cut the spring to make the chrony
don't do this
screw your velocity adjustment all the way in then back out 2 to 3 turns
it was working for a ot of guys with new guns
i only wish i tried this before i cut my spring , oh well just get a spring kit someday
gun was a litle on the heavy side but afetr a while you forget about it
thing was covered in rain and paint at the end of the day and was a sinch to clean thanks to the push pin and few allen screws
i am otally satisfied with the gun to this point
i will be testing next month at skirmish, D Day so plan on another report from me
oh
the whole time at Nam i probably put 3,000 rounds through it

Grab a new bolt from ACP and the cocking problem should go away. I believe it's because of the ACS bolt not cocking back properly.

What hopper did you use?

The recocking will go away if you just upgrade to a better force fed hopper.

the egg 3 i think is a great hopper
over 22 balls a second..the gun on auto can't even accomplish that
don't tell me your one of those guys that swears by the halo...thing drops like 2-3 balls a second more...if that.
i'm old enough to not fall for all the bulls**t marketing scams they throw at you kids just to get your money.
i'm willing to bet it wasn't the hopper. probably the bolt....due to the fact that it's new and i did cut it....which probably **cked it up in one way or another.

it seems to be working fine now but i may invest in a spring kit just to see how it works out with the system. and maybe even get a different kind of bolt to see how that works too.

i will say this
although the spring kit and the bolt are mods i would like to get for the gun the first i think will be the reloader b nite loader.
had my night vision monocular mounted on my gun during the night fighting.
man i miss the days as a scout.
anyway i could ee the opfor but couldn't see where my balls were going...sooooo....it looks like i am gonna shoot glowing paint and see how it works out with my NVD. hopefully it doesn't wash out the picture so this will be an expensive test...looking at $180 for the hopper and $60 for a box of balls. let ya knowhow it works out.

The force fed hopper overcomes the drastic blowby at the bolt that causes a popcorn effect which doesn't allow the balls to settle correctly and trips your acs bolt and that's why you are recocking so much. COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS MARKER.

Get over yourself.
