MR5 Barrel Adapter

For those of you that are wanting to run different barrels in your MR5, Jim Lange started making MR5 compatible barrel adapters.

Here are the pictures of the adapter, they cost $50 and can be obtained here. I haven't fired through it yet, gotta find some air first.





I thought it looked familiar, after talking to Jim he confirmed that he made the MR5 adapter from stock barrels. Quality is top notch.




Testing with J&J barrel


Shroud fits fine over J&J, I also got an empire barrel system, shroud doesn't like that one sadly.

Took these measurements for another thread, but figured I would post here for reference:

Here are some tip to measurements
Stock barrel is 12
JJ 12" Spyder Barrel: 11.75"
JJ 12" Spyder Barrel w/Adapter: 13.20"

But consider that the window that the paintball sit's in doesn't really count for acceleration, thus it's technically about 12.5" usable.

Thanks very much for this tip! I've been looking around like crazy for something like this adapter! But I'll actually buy the MRX model as it is the marker I have.

Get this adapter instead of the MRX one, then you are one step closer to being able to run FSR's. Just need bolt and mags after .

This will not fit on Hammer 7, they have a completely different designed adapter. But you don't need this since Hammer 7 already has a prebuilt adapter.

When you twist the barrel, what prevents it from unthreading?

Friction. The adapter threads on lightly and the barrel doesn't require alot of force to rotate it.

It could if u didn't realize u were turning it past when the adapter/original grove Contacts. I find it hard to know when your barrel is in the right position to put on the gun etc since the after market barrels don't have the markings on the barrel. You can however mark your aftermarket barrel.

But I've taken mine off a few times and no probs. U really just need to make sure the adapter is on tight and bottomed out.
