Review: This gun is the best MilSim bargain on the market. I have nearly $800 into my A-5 setup and this gun gives it a real run for it's money. Almost refuses to chop paint. The stock barrel is SUPER accurate. The sound scares people (including me when I let a friend borrow it and it was shooting at me!) The gun feels alot like the H&K UMP 45. VERY IMPRESSIVE. I bought the new Matte Black AutoCocker Trilogy Comp SF and will be selling it. The MR1 is my backup of choice, and that's only because I already have so much into my A-5. If not, the MR1 would be my primary weapon! THE GUN JUST KICKS BUTT! The problems that some people are talking about must just be flukes because my MR1 rocked out of the box with absolutely NO real problems. Yes, the grips wear the moment you touch them, and yes, the stock is in the way for removing the bolt (easily fixed by picking up a butterfly head bolt and stacking some washers. Yes, the stock does seem to vibrate loose quite easily, even with the chinsy lock washer provided. But again, easily fixed by using a real lock washer plus loctite. There aren't alot of mods for the gun out that I've found, but really there aren't any needed. Different stocks are available, and some nifty barrel shrouds. When I bought the gun I had plans to immediately pick up a J&J ceramic (I've have one on my A-5 and on my old AutoCocker and absolutely LOVE those barrels, best bang for the buck for sure) but the stock barrel on the MR1 is SOOOOOOO good it really seemed like a waste of money. Yes, the stock barrel is a little loud, but I kinda dig that, coupled with the fact that I've thrown all kinds of paint through the gun and it has happily shot it all.
Conclusion: This gun is the best value in the MilSim paintball world. At $100 you would do yourself a disservice to purchase anything else, regardless if it's your primary weapon or a backup. I'm giving the gun a 10, because of the overall performance, because of the increadible value and because I LOVE IT! The best $100 I've spent in a looooooong time!
