Period of

Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Marker Setup: New MR2 with eye. Everything else standard.
Recommended
Upgrades:
none
Strengths: Well made (mostly metal) not like many other markers which are made of plastic.
Weaknesses: Trigger frame and side panels expose electronics.
Review: Overall the gun is well made and functions really well, hasn't chopped a ball yet. Before purchasing this gun I read many reviews and looked through numerous forums. When I pulled it out of the box I was very impressed by the quality, and it wasn't nearly as heavy as everyone claimed (Its actually lighter than most guns of the same price). But something I notice right away was the grip. The plastic grip panels dont seal up really well to the trigger frame. When the battery is installed the panels bulge out even more. This can't be good for the trigger's electronic board. This is very disappointing, I thought I was getting a very durable and tough gun. It looks like you could sneeze and the electronics could short circuit.
Conclusion: I'm currently thinking of ways to solve this problem. A wrap around grip would probably help a little, but not enough. There will still be many ways for paint or water or moisture to get inside the grip. I have yet to find anyone that mentions having this type of problem. I think this is an obvious and potentially serious problem. I've never let snow nor rain nor water crossings, stop me from playing paintball. But this marker is definitely going to limit me to dry weather [unacceptable] until I can solve the problem.
