Spyder MR1.super unreliable had to get spring clipped first time
98 custom, CAR stock , 20" Smart Parts Tacticle Barrel, Double trigger, 20 oz. Co2
New Barrel!!!!!! Cannot stress enough!!!!! Stock is not very good.
Stock. makes the weight feel like less/ makes more maneuverable.
Double Trigger helps rate of fire
Hopper upgrade not needed unless you have e trigger or you shoot to fast (not a problem for me)
No internal Maitenance
Bad stock barrel
hard to get to internals
First let me say this gun is great! It is cheap and reliable.
I have never chopped a ball in this gun, even using the stock barrel. I never even had to maintain it. No oil or internal cleaning. But if you do have to do internal mantenance or an upgrade it is annoying. The gun comes in two shells and to get to the front you have to deal with parts in the back and visa versa. Taking it appart is terrible esspecially because of some of the tiniest parts can fly and are quite hard to see.
You can get this gun for as cheap as 120$ with the ACT which is a must because this is what makes it so reliable. I would nonetheless pay 200 for he stock gun.
The gun will reach any noobs needs right off. Add a good barrel, doubble trig, and stock ;and it would satisfy an intermediate player such as myself. Add the cyclone or another nice hopper and the e-trigger..... Then a pro would most likely be satisfied by the quality and price.
I started off with an MR1 because everyone said it was better than the tippmann. Soon I found i needed my drive spring clipped and the gun needed alot of maitanence. Once fixed not horrible but not as good as 98.
Then I swiched to the Tippmann, got some upgrades and havn't looked back.
The stock barrel is not very good although it is proficient in CQB so you should get another barrel.
I thought the stock and double trigger are also cheaper ways to make the gun alot better. The cyclone and e-trigger are a little bit more expensive.
This gun is well priced and very reliable. It will do wonders for noobs and can easily be upgrayded to fits a better players needs for reasonable prices. Although it does have some small problems it is still a 10-10 Don't get me wrong, there are much better markers out there. But for the price tag, it's king. That's why I still use mine Thoough I could have purchased another. Truly the Kalashnikov AK of paintball.
10 out of 10
