Review: Ok well ive bought my MR1 and i love it, i had the option of the Tippmann or the MR1, i was on a budget and i lean more towards rec/milsim/woods - type paintball: so i was faced with the Highly upgradeable Tippman 98 or the MR1: but the parts for a Tippy was nearly $200 (CDN) to get a good stock and maybe barrel to make it look like i wanted. so i said well the MR1 looks pretty good straight out of the box and i got it instead.

Although the MR1 is difficult to make it LOOK more like a milsim it is a pretty good gun, i used it a couple of times, once in a game and there were no problems ...

[edit]
been using this gun for a while, very good so far, only real pains/probs ive had were the detents but once i got the black detents i havent had a seared problem since....
Conclusion: the only problem i see with this gun is that it is difficult to find parts to up it, and even though ive heard problems with the Detent it could easily be replaced, and if you go to the spyder.tv site and go to the forums and talk to a rep there and they will allow you to get a free detent from kingman- also different companies detents, ive heard, could also fit it. so ill give it a 9 outta 10.. only because of the lack of parts to upgrade...so yea....
