Review: I have just recently aquired a E-MR1 and am giving this review based on what ive noticed
first off,

Accuracy : unfortunately, this marker is not the most precise thing out there. I found that at about 30 meters it had a hard time hitting its target, which can get quite frustrating. This is why i strongly recommend buying a longer barrel.

Rate of fire: the accuracy might not be amazing, but if you fire enough paintballs at something it will eventually get hit. For the price, this marker deliver a very good rate of fire (15-18 bps). unfortunately it has no EYES, so u do need an E-Loader.

Construction : The E-MR1 resembles the other spyder MR series in that much of the interior components are field strip-able, meaning u can quickly clean up most problems and get back in the game, however, the electronics in the grip do bulge out a bit on one side, and if submerged in water or mud i'm afraid they might break.
another interesting feature is the plastic hammer, which apparently is self lubricating. After my first use i found it already a little scratched, but aside from that it works fine.

Other : like the MR1, the E-MR1 is ridiculously loud. This can be good or bad. Laying down a hail of extremely loud automatic fire can be quite intimidating to whoever your shooting at. However, if your sniping (like me) or trying to be discreet, you fire once and your screwed. Finally, something that really did not fly with me was that there is No safety on the marker. When your e trigger is set to very sensitive, you can easily fire by accident in a tight situation. You can turn the marker on/off, but that is a lot longer then flicking off the safety on the MR-1

Accessories : The E-MR1 comes with a field adjustable stock that fits quite nicely on the shoulder. If you are not using a scope, it is a great attachment.

Conclusion: In conclusion, the E-MR1 beats everything else in its price range. For around 140$ you get a fully automatic marker that looks beast and is excellent at close range. However, if you want a more tactical medium to long range marker, your going to have to upgrade it.
