Review: All in all in my opinion the MR2 (without the eye) will hang with other markers such as the Ion and slightly more priced ones. I didn't have much problems keeping people pinned down while flanking them. Its a loud gun, and they will know you are coming. The feel of the gun is decent, even though it is heavy - it will slow you down abit.

Trigger - Needs alot of travel stock to engage, and requires some adjustment. I was lazy and stuck some tape at the top of the trigger infront of it to shortern the distance required for a fire.

Grips - Plastic, no rubber really, some what annoying after hours of playing without gloves.

Stock Barrel - LOUD, not to accurate over 45 / 50 ft'

J&J Ceramic barrel - quiets it up, adds distance (4" group at 50ft)

The Stock - Hacked it off on day 2. Not every Milsim gun needs to stay a Milsim gun. Its heavy but will hang on the speed ball field better without it. Gun would not recock all the way without the stock plug in every 200-500 shots I would have to recock it atleast one. Stock had a O-ring on the end of, think this might have had something to do with it.

Taking it apart - Very easy, simple gun setup, not alot of parts that will go flowing, careful of the cocking handle, small springs will leap out if not taken apart correctly.

Feel - Decent, good to get used to, not a problem to switch hands/sides of firing. Weight is the only issue with this gun, and thats why you pay more money for better markers, atleast compaired to this one.

Rate of fire - It can make it rain, I've not chopped many balls, alot of them break in the barrel more or less (Polar Ice Green/Gray paintballs. Don't likem anymore stick with Ramps in the winter with this gun.)

Feed neck - Alot of people don't like the gun because of the feed neck, but if you are firing from a left handed position the hopper is more concealed then normal, less sticks out, and vise versae for the other side, abit mroe sticks out. So it can go either way. Get your left hand game strong and try to stay with it if possible.


Conclusion: All in all its a very decent marker with the right upgrades. Don't think you are not going to need a hopper. A barrel is almost optional the stock one is not to bad. You are seeing decent prices on these guns because they are more heavy. Thats all. Played with an Epiphany today and, wow... it was alot easier to run down field with.

The current prices I see on these range from 150 - 190 (its 2/3/08)

Not a bad buy, good gun for someone like myself getting back into the paintball game. It did wonderful on the speedball field, TAKE THE STOCK OFF. Its a Milsim that will turn speed ball in afew seconds I hope this is why the gun did not cock (removed the stock - but replaced the plug now at which has a o-ring on it.)

9 - NEEDS a hopper, 20bps+. Barrel optional. Not a good flanker gun, loud stock barrel.

The recocking thing might have to do with the sight rail screw being screwed in too tight. I tightened it down like crazy once, and it kind of drilled into the cocking mechanism and wouldn't let it move.
