Review: So I went to Dickssportinggoods the other day planning on getting the Tippmann 98 Custom Pro. I get there and they dont have it. My second choice was the MR1. I looked at the 98 Custom which they had but i did not care for it I wanted the Custom Pro for the Double Trigger, Drop Foward and Longer Stock Barrel! Also for Tippmanns great accuracy and durability. I previosly had the Tippman Model 98 for 6 years untill the bolt crapped out and it started double firing and chopping paint bad, so i decided to just invest in a newer gun. When i saw the MR1 i was immediatly drawn to its stylish looks. I like the rugged military stylings. So i went ahead and bought it for $99.99 not bad considering i was going to spend $160 for the Tippmann. Brought it home oiled it up first and dry shot it (reccomend doing this at least once a week, take some gun oil and pour like 5-6 drops into the ASA feed where your co2 screws in then screw in your co2 and fire it with no paint like 5-10 shots, it lubricates all your internals pretty good which will just increase the longjevity of your marker) so anyways i take it out , oil it and then load about half a hopper and just start firing immediatly from 20-30 feet away bang,bang,bang!! same exact spots i was very suprised with the accuraccy then i proceeded to step back to about 70-80 feet shot it and it started curving left, then i realized i hadnt even adjusted the velolity so i screwed it all the way in but then i encountered a problem i could pull the bolt back so i turned down the velocity by one turn worked fine its probably at its max well i then shot sommore off and it was great the stock barrel is very good not at all like i expected again bang bang bang!!! withing inches of each other from 70 to 80 feet! Verry accurate gun right out of the box
Conclusion: I'll have to write another review after i test it out this weekend when im playing woodsball! So Far i would definatly advise any woodsball player of any skill to buy this gun very sturdy and accurate !! even for speedball just take the stock off and it is prime!
only weakness is it is loud but so are tippy's if not louder, but i myself like it louder it is very intimidating to ur opponets. i give it a 9 because i havnt tested it in a game yet and well nothings perfect, very nive gun congrats to Kingman on this one!
9 out of 10

you say your paintball experience is 1 year, yet later in the review you say you had a Tippmann for 6 years? What's up with that??!! good review though.
