Review: I've had my MR2 for a few months now and have been through about 6 cases of paint and overall I'm very pleased. It chops very little and usually "jams" before it will chop- but it's alot easier to just recock the T knob, than to acually break a ball and have the clean everything. With the stock barrel accuracy was decent and and the gun overall was good with no mods.

The factory butt stock looks cool and feels comfortable to hold but all that chages once you have your mask on. there are a couple of ways to fix this- The MR2 stock mod- in which you remove the entire top portion of the stock, so you can lean your head behind the sights better with out your mask hitting it. Or you can buy a red dot and a side mount as not to have to lean your head as much. That's really my only complaint. Oh, and the stock plastic grips are kinda cheesy, but at least that's an easy fix.

The egrip is great in my opinion, it does not have any ramping or adjustability, but unlike other egrips I have seen, there is no LCD (or dot matrix) with a menu to go through to make on the fly changes, none of that "hold this button for five seconds then press and release the other buttton" nonsesne. It simply has a switch with an LED indicator to let you know what mode of fire you're in. Green= Semi, Yellow= 3 rd burst, Red= Full auto. Simple but effective.
Conclusion: I love my MR2. It shoots great and is extremely dependable. I would recommend it to anyone who is into milsims or scenario play, because it feels really good to put to your shoulder and fire like a true rifle. It is heavy, but so are real guns, so to me it adds to the realism. I would definately recommend a barrrel though, the stock barrel seems above average, but let's face it- it's a stock barrel. The grips are the absolute worst part of the gun's fit and finish but everything else is great quality. Check one out, you'll like it!
