Welcome to the MR1 club. From what is posted from my thread, someone recommended a Lapco barrel instead of J&J.

The low blow bolt, whats the difference between the regular bolt, besides it being lighter and no lub?

Spring kit, wrap around grip, velocity adjuster screw, I'm not to sure about those since I'm a noob myself.

These items listed are what I found through the search button.
Fireball Mountain Delrin blade trigger
Scenario Dreams 25-gram trigger switch
Bob Long Intimidator ball detent

I cancelled my order on my barrel and grip since the grip wouldn't fit and picked up a 14" reds pepperstick barrel today.

Ok so now I have the new low blow bolt in, 14" pepper stick barrel, high velocity spring kit, and a velocity adjustment thumb screw. What else besides hpa can I do? Would a new valve help anything? Anything else at all?

I am really thinking about getting a rocking trigger for mine. Anyone have one? Will my low blow bolt work or should I get a different one?

I have a rocking trigger and again, strongly recommend that you do not get one, especially since you are a beginner. It takes an insanely small amount of force to trip the trigger, causing it to fire when you don't want it to. Also, a lot of fields/tourneys don't allow either rocking triggers or full auto.

I really like how simple the MR1 is. you pull the trigger and it works, no batteries, boards ect. to worry about. But thats just me I left my MR1 a mech, really there was no need for another electronic trigger I have enough of those. Are you just looking for higher rates of fire? you could always upgrade your marker in ways to make it more co2 friendly if you plan on using that, it will make a big difference.

I am more for distance and accuracy and just making it what it can be. I dont play in tournaments or speedball. I just play with a bunch of guys on the weekend. I went ahead and bought a diablo spring kit today since mine hasn't came in the mail and a 32 degrees valve. I cant wait till tomorrow to try it out.

I hope your guys are chronographing too, Davis06... The spring kit and valve mixed with a nice regulator will do real nice.

You're distance will be the same as everybody else's. The distance is a function of the speed of the paintball. In this case (everyone's for that matter) the speed of the paintball is measured at the muzzle and limited to less than 300fps (feet per second). A good goal to shoot for in terms of velocity is about 275fps if you're on unregulated CO2. This is because liquid CO2 can cause spikes- setting is a little lower will help keep the spikes to a safer speed. As for the difference in distance between 275fps and 300fps, it's not as big as you'd think. It's only around 10 feet or so.

So to sum up, once you get your desired mods on it, take it to a field and have them help you chronograph it. It is also advisable to buy a small hand held unit to help others check theirs as well as adjust through out the day, as it will change with temperature.
