Tippmann 98, Tippmann A-5, and Spyder Imagine. All of these markers are pretty good, but I prefer the MR-2 over all of them.
Trinity AK-47 Expansion Chamber
Trinity Center On/Off with Rail - Black
Macro Line Air System
Spyder FASTA Hopper - 30 BPS
Red Laser Sight with Pressure switch
Pure Energy 20oz Tank
32 Degrees Coiled Remote
Definitely a fast hopper. I recommend the Spyder FASTA hopper (30 BPS).
CCM Feedneck for Hopper durability and eliminates movement.
Apex Barrel to increase accuracy on your shots.
Trinity Ak-47 Expansion Chamber for better air consistency in cold and hot weather.
Side feed for better aiming
Barrel limitations because of shroud.
Requires a fast hopper to keep up with the marker.
The Spyder MR-2 is a wonderful marker. I use mine to play scenario and speedball. At 25 BPS this gun keeps up with all the markers out on the speedball field. Just make sure to adjust your trigger sensitivity (There is a screw in the trigger frame to do this).
I play a lot of scenario games and we allow full auto for this type of play. Everyone knows when its me shooting, but not very many will stay and trade shots with me anymore. This includes a Tippmann A-5 with an e-trigger, Smart parts ION, Tippmann 98 with a response trigger, Spyder Imagine, Spyder Electra, and Spyder Pilot. Many have tried and a lot get burned with this marker. I have even seen opponent's paintballs breaking against one of my many shots before it even gets to me. In the meantime, the other balls are still flying their way.
This gun is really fast and really consistant. With my set up, I have not broken any paintballs in my marker in over 5000 shots. As a stock MR-2 with a Spyder FASTA hopper (30 BPS), I broke 2 paintballs within 2500 shots. Still pretty consistant without my set up. This is really good considering I use Visible Impact and Bonus balls.
Some people have said that there is not many modifications that can be done to the Spyder MR2, but I disagree. I have set up my marker the way I like it and can still put quite a few more accessories on it (check out the pictures). The only problem is finding a good barrel to fit on it. They are out there you just have to look. I highly recommend the Apex barrel.
I recommend this marker to anyone looking to strike fear into their opponent's eyes. You will see them run when they hear you comming. It is very affordable and very durable. Any style of player and exprience level will enjoy this marker.

You have to remove the original plastic foregrip that comes with the MR-2 (there should be 2 screws at the bottom to do this) and then you have to unscrew the chamber underneath foregrip with a vice grip tool or some kind of clamping plyers. Kind of a pain, but well worth it. Once you remove the old chamber you can screw the expansion chamber on. You might want to remove the trigger frame when you do this so it does not get in the way. Then my suggestion would be to take it to a paintball store and have them look at it because you will have to change the air hose once you have put the expansion chamber on unless you already have a kit to do this.
