Default Re: MR1 Detent??

ATimmy is a model of Bob Long guns. It shares a similar detent except the timmy's are stronger. Buy detents for a Bob Long Timmy or if those arent available you can use one out of a Piranha.

any and all help would be greatly appreciated,

As a preventive measure, I had my MR1's ball detent replaced with one from a Timmy (the black one is the highest durometer).

I should be receiving my MR1 this week, just in time for a game on Saturday. I won't have time to pick up a three-pack of detentes by then.

What are the odds that my detent will break on my first day out? If it happens, the Tippman guys won't let me hear the end of it!

Talking Re: MR1 Detent??

depends, ive heard that all the MR1's have been fixed so that the MR1's have better detents, if u have an older version with the crappy detent the odds are u might have to get it replaced the first day, but if u get the new one u might be alright..

well, i have an MR1 and i also had one of the black "resilient" detents, and it still broke off. then again, i was shooting pretty fast too. this hapened on the first day i used the gun. i found a site called paintball reviews and it told me how to make a detent out of a pen spring that works better than any rubber one i have seen. and it hasnt broken a ball since.

My friend's MR1 is very nice. He let me shoot it a few times, and it has the nicest flow and trigger pull.

It is really nice looking and has a unique style than most spyders.

About the detent, my friend hasn't had that problem yet

heres the link to the site that will tell you how to fix the detent with a pen spring. its also a good site for unbiased, consumer reviews on tons of paintball guns and gear. go to the second review down.
