Have not gotten that far
Strengths: Solid, works well, son loved the look, reliable, doesn't chop balls, shoots straight.
Weaknesses: Slow firing, screws need tightening, scoring on upper bolt after use, requires screwdriver to fieldstrip.
Review: Son got this for Christmas. The gun is clean, well build and feels very solid. Its a bit bulkier so which I like so yo don't feel like you are carrying around a toy.

First the drawbacks: my son says the single trigger is slow firing. After a day on the field several screws were loose and needed to be tightened - lose enough that the grip was twisting slightly from the body. I clean the guns after each day of use and I noticed on both this and the MR1 there has scoring on the front of the top bold. Way more than I would have expected for a single day of use. I don't know it this effects the performance and whether it was from lack of oiling at the factory or design. I oiled it well and will check again later. Cleaning requires a regular screwdriver to remove the bolt so that could come into play if you have to work on it in the field. All the other guns we have are toolless

Took it out yesterday and he had blast. First off my son, 18, shoots a LOT of balls. We went through over 4000 - 5000 balls between the 3 of us and he shot more than his brother or I. Never chopped a ball all day long on hpa. Even thought he shot more balls we did seem to use less air, which is the claim to fame for the MR4. He has a remote line but the gun is light enough with the 3000psi hpa tank attached to the gun that he preferred to play with the bottle attached to the gun.

We went through 4 kinds of balls, Marbleizers, JT, Spyder and field paint. The lady at Twisted PB in Conroe was very nice because it was our first time there and let us use JT and Spyder cause they were gifts even though they were not field approved. My son said the Marblelizers flew noticeably straighter than the other three, the JT being the worst.

Drawbacks: Single trigger, slow firing. After a days on the field several screws were loose and needed to be tightened - lose enough that the grip was twisting slightly from the body. I clean the guns after each day of use and I noticed on both this and the MR1 there has scoring on the front of the top bold. Way more than I would have expected for a single day of use. I don't know it this effects the performance and whether it was from lack of oiling at the factory or design. I oiled it well and will check again later. Cleaning requires a regular screwdriver to remove the bolt so that could come into play if you have to work on it in the field. All the other guns we have are toolless
Conclusion: Would definitely recommend this marker. Its solid, shoots straight, doesn't chop balls. What more can you ask for on a day of pb.

For new purchasers I would tighten the screws and oil the upper bolt before first use. Otherwise a great marker.
