Review: OK, so im going to seperate this reveiw into three different catagories: why to buy, why not to buy, and when bought what next.

WHY TO BUY: well, there are probably many reasons to buy an mr2, but im only going to list one main idea. Its the perfect multi senario game marker. the mr2 is great for just about ant type of game weither you are inside, in the forest, or even in sub-zero climates (compressed air rather than co2 is recommended for cold weather). even though the mr2 is designed for mil-sim games and senario-type games, when the stock is removed it can double as a speedball marker. now, if full auto isn't allowed, then the double finger trigger is quite usefull. personnally i can manage about 16 bps MAX on semi but some people might even be able to exceed the fire rate of full auto (which is 25 bps) but i doubt it. the mr2 is also quite accurate when the target is at less than 150 feet away. personnaly in semi auto, I can shoot a target about the size of a quarter 50 feet away in about 2 shots, but others may be able to shoot better than I can. not only is it accurate, but it only weighs about 6 LBS when the hopper and co2 (10 or 12 Oz) is attached. New, the price range is about $240-$300 CAN, so if its an all pourpose marker your looking for, then this is probably the best.

WHY NOT TO BUY: there are not too many downsides to this gun and I will be breif, and to the point. because the gun shoots so damn fast, you need a really good hopper such as a Halo B or better, which can and will end up costing you a lot of cash. second, its really loud (compared to other general paintball markers). which means that when you are playing in doors or even out doors, this will give away your position and end up getting you eleminated quickly. to slightly suppress the weapon, add a long barrel to the marker, it will also increace the accuracy (which you dont need). and last it is diffucult to aim with the mr2, so adding a red dot like the newly found ones in Badlands ( made especily for spyders) will hopefully increase the likelyness of hitting some one from a far distance. with these problems, it may end up costing more than you bargened for.

WHEN BOUGHT WHAT NEXT: im going to be honest, out of the box the mr2 is mal supported. I my self mainly play indoor and when i first purchased it i dicided to take it for a spin. so i payed to get in, yada yada yada, i started playing with it and for a weapon straight out of the box it wasen't bad. then after about 6 rounds of games like speedball, CTF, attack and defend, i dicided to see just how fast my gun was shooting because i realized i started to outplay alot of the people there, and even I know Im not good enough to out play people with ions. so i checked and the speed was 338 FPS (just so you know the maxumum at that particular place is 230 FPS. so I removerd the stock and loosened the spring as much as it could go and still i got an astonishing 294 FPS. so basicly what i hadent realized is that you need a whole differnent freaking spring kit. not only is that bad but the stock barell (suprisingly) broke when I hit a stone wall. so I would suggest getting a new barrel right away so that you arent forced into getting a new one like I was. and rember like I said before... get a damn good hopper.

Edit1: alright, so its already been over 4 months science I have bought the mr2. I have 3 up grades, and one essential. the upgrades are:1. 18 inch sniper barrel. 2. grenade launcher (thunder). And 3. the MR series red scope. Here is why these upgrades are usefull. the sniper barrel provides amazing perscion, the G-launcher provides a destructive spray (optional) when im out of ammo, and the red dot supplies an invisible (to the enemy) "red dot" which is helpfull 'cause you r then able to see exactly where you r going to shoot. the essential is (obisily) the spring kit. And that is my update. o ya and one more thing. You ARE NOT required to spen $300 on an amazing to prevent the hopper from not feedin fast enough. Why? because is not the hopper thats causing the lack of speed, its the gun its self. my recomendation is to purchase an anti-chop bolt.
Conclusion: The mr2 is a good all pourpose weapon if you willing to put a little money into it. Screw the bt-4, this is a better starter weapon because if you want speedball, you got it. If you want forest sniper, you got it. If you want full auto for capturing buildings, you got that too. Its a great weapon and id rate it a 10/10 but because of the hopper problem and spriing kit issue, i rate it a 9/10
