Question MR1 on HPA

hmmm..... i got a MR1 and a 62ci 3000psi HPA tank but..... the drop forward will not let me screw on the tank! i have emailed spyder twice about this issue, but as of late, i have no responses. can someone give me a CEO name and email, so i can email him directly? that would be good.

Thanks,
Paintballit

that's not really a technical problem, i'm not sure what you're expecting them to do but you can just get a different asa or drop forward or you could get a asa extension or a remote line. it's just one of those unfortunate design flaws

Try sliding the ASA back a little on the drop rail. What is hitting the drop? Gauge, fill nipple?

Worst case is you might have to get a new ASA. If the rail on the drop was normal size I would send you a small Shocktech drop I have.

The fill nipple.... even if it is a design flaw, it is still Spyder's fault.... isn't it?

I think the stock MR1 asa/drop forwards are all in one so he cant slide it. I may be wrong though.

it's not there fault the fill nipple is too big and unless it came with a kit, they have nothing to do with it. it's like buying an upgrade for a different gun and trying to put it on it. it's not their fault you bought something that doesnt fit

TDS is right, unless it came as a set from kingman, you cant blame them.

The several MR1 frames I had with the drops & ASAs, the ASA would slide some but I think the hose would be the thing keeping it from going far.

Pbit, a cheap way out is replace the asa/drop with a duckbill & macro.


OH ya, can you snap a picture of you fill nipple so we can see how big it is?

Er......would you call Bill Gates if you tried to install a cable to your computer that you just bought because it didn't fit? If I'm not mistaken there are people on CEO's payroll that handle customer complaints, AKA the customer service department. If you really must complain, you should call them between 9AM -5PM PST and ask for a customer services rep -

I do not work for Spyder but far as I can see, seems to be a case of user error. I would equate this to buying a 15" tire for a car that has 13" rims. It's not the manufacturers fault you're trying to add something to their product that obviously doesn't fit. If they recommended you buy that tank for your MR1, I could see you complaining but I don't think that's the case. A rational resolve would be using a different tank that fit or changing out to a larger drop that will accomodate that specific tank. You could alway get a TAC vest and remote line as well if you wanted to use that tank -

Good Luck

I lol'd Drago. Your humor brings warmth to my soul.

Just get a new ASA, one that has an on/off and bleed. It'll make it possible to screw on your tank, and in the long run will save you tank orings and headaches. You should get a rail mount one and a rail, as then you can slide it back and forth (within reason) so that the fill nipple is no longer an issue. Personally, I love CP ASA's and typically have one on whatever gun I'm using.

yes a rail would be nice, but if you buy a cp rail and asa w/ on of you're looking at $40-$50 plus the price of macro and fittings so you might have $60 just getting air to the gun and thats in a $100 gun
