Review: Ive been paintballing for almost 2 years now. The Spyder MR2 was my first E-Marker, and i was very impressed with it. The MR2 comes with a detachable stock, which only adds to the weight, but still a nice little upgrade anyway. There are 3 firing modes on this marker. Semi automatic, 3 shot burst, and Full automatic. The full auto is capable of 11-13 bps. And in Semi, it is capable of 25 bps but there is no way you can pull that fast. I can get mine up to about 15-16.
This gun fires fairly well. I have shot about 2.5 cases with this marker, and I havent had any balls chop yet. Yes, one or two have busted in the barrel, but its not really chopping.
There is, however, the problem with the double feeding. With the stock ball detent, this gun will double feed once or twice out of every hopper. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THAT YOU GET A NEW DETENT. You will thank me. Also, this marker is extremely heavy. i think with a full hopper, tank, and the stock, This gun will end up weighing anywhere between 7-10 pounds, depending on your hopper and tank. But once you get out onto the field, you dont notice the weight very much.
And also, this gun has sort of a tactical feel to it. It looks like an assault rifle. How can you not love that? Its even got the M16 style cocking bolt.
Conclusion: This is a great marker for anyone. Woodsballers and Speedballers alike can use this marker. besides the weight, there isnt much you can hate about this gun. I would reccomend this gun to everybody. you wont be dissapointed. I give the Spyder MR2 an 8 out of 10
Rating:
8 out of 10
