Hpa doesn't guarantee steady pressure, its just a better air source for your marker.

BL torp's are pretty cheap, and they look like they will fit under the handguard.. ill tell ya when mine gets here

if you're using HPA, get a CP since it has the fitting in the bottom already.

different things. a good reg, as listed above, and a 32* magnaport valve should help a lot.

so what does this valve do...how much work is involved AND where is a good place to buy it. Is there one made specifically for the MR2 or can I use a Spyder one ?

its pretty much a milled-out spyder valve. they're $10 without the valve pin and $15 with the valve pin. just about any online site (except actionvillage) sells them. try compulsivepaintball.com or ebay.

wait wait wait...

Your MR is electro right? Did you happen to mess with any dwell settings of the board? Too low of a dwell setting will cause high fluctuations over a chrono.

Also, is there an inline reg on it? If so, you may need to tear it down, clean and regrease it.

"dwell settings of the board" ???????????????? I have no idea what that is. I have never made any changes to the board. Are they physical switch settings or programming settings. I am just asking becuase I took the whole thing out while cleaning and I want to make sure I didnt knock anything on or off ?
