The MR1 will take a beating and keep on firing! The slide out pull pin, field strippable bolt, and full-length stock (optional) make the MR1 an easily operated and highly accurate scenario marker with military resilience and stability. This semi-auto marker won't rust even when you're trekking through the wettest terrain, and you?ll never need to worry about batteries because there aren?t any electronic parts!
The Kingman Spyder MR1 is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Kingman Spyder Mr1, Viewloader eVLution II, Custom Products 14 inch barrel, 48/3000 Pure Energy Air System, Kingman Java Deluxe Slam 5 Paintball Harness.
Accurate. (with a new barrel)
fairly easy to clean.
Loud and inaccurate with stock barrel. (buying a new barrel fixes these)
This gun is amazing. Its very tough and has great accuracy with my 14 inch custom products barrel. I was playing the other day and me and my brother(who had a junky piranha rental gun) took out about four or five players on the other team, about three of them had A-5's. I haven't had any problems with this gun so far. I recommend it for anyone just getting into paintball. I do recommend nitrogen, an electronic hopper, and a new barrel for it.
Go buy this gun, its tough, accurate, and fairly cheap. ( I got mine for $80)

A little on the heavy side compared to tippmann, chops balls off and on.
Well i bought one of these a while back before i bought my other guns, and was pleasently suprized at the quality for under $100 came with a stock which was cool although it isnt the best design, and the gun is very sturdy, although i have had a few ball chops, there hasent been really anough to complain about and it is to be expected.
its not very often you find a metal gun for less than $100
i would reccomend this gun to any begining player looking for quality for a great price, although it doesent stand up to the A5 or MR3 it is probably the best gun out there for its price.

new barrel and air through stock if you can find one. and a new feed neck
Cheap, can take a hit, made of metal,
Little heavy, loud with stock barrel, long trigger pull, fore grip,
i bought this gun about six months ago as my first gun . I took it out to the feild i was kinda scared every body had a vs1 and one kid had a 400 dollar autocoker. i put on the 16 inch barrel and went off to the game it was 4 on 3. after the game started i went around the backside of the feild with two other people and started to lay fire. i was probaly shooting 6 balls per second I didn't cut one the whole time. then there whole team came on to us and we had to crawl on the ground. living in florida there is so much sand and there was lots of mud. crawling through that lots of sand was in the gun. I found some cover tipped it upside don and kept firing it didn't even jam! through the day we played speed ball and all the shots where on my gun it was hit probaly 20 times! still worked fine. I would definitly recomend this gun to starters to scenario paintball. the only problem i have found is that it;s hard to fid upgrades right now. spyder should fix it soon ( I hope!). the stock is hard to get used to. because it doesnt move. and when it comes out of the package it is set at a wopping 320 feet per second! there was a lot of crying that first day. ( my little brother still has a bruise)
Good gun cheap at 99.99 at common stores. it will give you a concusion if you melee to the head. its really good if you put a sniper barrel on it. definitly losen the trigger. by the way pardon my spelling!! i give it 9 out of ten
I thought the Spyder Mr1 is a great beginner gun and is really powerful. Im giving it a 10/10 for its durability and its shooting. I am getting a spring kit for the gun and probably a new barrel but thats it i am very impressed with this gun.
I would recommend it to any beginner because it is really durable
MR-1 Military Kit, standard setup w/stock and barrel
Barrel (APEX, or Smart Parts 20" tactical)
Great mil-sim look
Standard stock (improves accuracy)
Elbow is weak
Standard barrel could be better
I just received the MR-1 military kit. It includes the standard MR-1 stuff, but the gun's body is olive not black, and it includes a Spyder V-type mask and 12 oz. CO2 tank. Looks good, i haven't had a chance to play with it yet. I was recommenced Spyder a starter gun, they are rugged and parts aren't too expensive (as opposed to a 98 Custom.)
I would recommend this for anyone who is new to paintball and wants a tough mil-sim style marker at at great price.
Spyder MR1, 14" Straight Barrel with custom Weaver shroud, Tac Light, Lazer sight, Extreme Rage Electronic Hopper, m-16 front sight, bipod hand grip
Replace the cheap plastic elbow with metal aftermarket.
Very well made and pretty much bomb proof.
Uuuuuuummmm......Perhaps a little bit harder to find accessories...?
Okay, I'm a 33 yeard old guy who is just now getting into the game. I wanted something that I could upgrade, that would just look cool, but also be cost effective. No - it's not as customizable as the Tippman, but it is still quite customizable.
This gun is not by any means a piece of junk. I have gotten hours and hours of play with this marker and every ball ball fires accurately. Now, I'm not gonna get into the exact spec's of the gun and every little detail, but Kingman did not build a toy (no pun intended) when they built this marker. Some people will only swear by Tippman - but let me tell you - my buddy has a Tippman 98C and I outperformed him. I could shoot faster, more BPS, and with the same accuacy. I've upgraded my gun and plan on doing more. At some point I plan on purchasing the E trigger. This is a great marker for scenario playing.
I love the gun and will stick with this brand. I just want to go out and have fun. I'm not into the the whole "competition" aspect of it, but do want a marker that will last, and I feel that I have it.

Sights are too low to use, Uses a bit too much air.
I have had quite a bit of time using my gun and I have come to the conclusion that all the people that say how much it chops really are going to get chopping out of any stock gun. I have recently purchased the gun off a friend, the gun was never used and i got $80 off the reg price. When i got home i assembled the gun and was impressed at the nice style the gun gave without being bright. I was really impressed at the stock that came with the gun and the double trigger that both where stock! I went out to my feild the next weekend hoping to pile up some kills on both the woodball and x-ball feilds. Thats exactly what i did. I come to the conclusion that this is my rating....
Stock- For not leaving much room between it and the ASA valve 9-10
Double Trigger- I think that its a amazing feature to come stock on the gun but trigger pull is a tad hard 9-10
Drop foreward- Since it comes stock on my gun I LOVE it 10-10
Sights- They are a bit low, without the stock on that are pretty effective. 8-10
Color- Since its matte black(olive green and silver) they dont stand out in the woods and no glare off my gun! 10-10
Style- It comes with a magasine and that and the body give it one of the closest stock guns that are mil-sim. 10-10
How it works- Since all you noobs that are trying to go faster than your gravity hopper can feed I say NOOBS. The gun works great and I give it a 10-10
Get it It is an AMAZING GUN. The people who say how much there guns chop are eather not using a electronic hopper or walking the trigger WAY to fast for a gravity. People that own it know how much of a great gun it is. It is my favorite speedball-woodsball crossover on the market and wouldnt trade it for anyhting!! Since the sights are a bit low(buy a sight) but other than that i would give it a 10!!! GREAT job Kingman+Spyder!!
Better barrel, stock is just OK; Check out http://www.bp-usa.com/Spyder.htm for some good upgrades, mostly stocks
Very affordable and reliable, hasn't stopped for me yet
Its no A-5, "comes with" stock won't work with mask
Let me start off by saying that I love this gun. It is affordable and very accurate with the better barrel. This gun is also very versital. Take off the stock and it is plenty small enough to use in a speedball match and with or without the stock is works great for woodsball. I am also very impressed with the range of this gun. I dare say is has a better range than most high end marker such as an A-5. I was in a "bunker duel" with a guy that had an A-5. We were about 20 yards appart each with good cover and he seemed to be at extreme range. I was able to get a shot in there and took him out with relative ease. If you are considering this gun I would highly recomend it. If you go to http://www.bp-usa.com/Spyder.htm you can find some good upgrades for it.
If you are a noob or a veteran this is a good gun and can preform well in the hands of someone experienced.
mr1 with a gravity feed hopper and a 20 ounce co2, 12in stock barrel
new barrel if you want to be a sniper, 20 in smart parts tactical will do the trick
20 ounce co2
Can dominate a field if you know how to use
Loud with stock barrell
Heard to aim because of bolt
Small weaver reel
Overall this is a very nice gun if you want to be either the power-full guy on the frontlines or if you stay back and snipe out the other team. It is a very easy to use gun. But need some upgrades and expect to use about 20 ounces of co2 per outing. This is a very good gun it will take a beating and keep on going. I have fired this thing in dirt and when its wet and it has kept on going. So i would suggest this gun to anyone who is a newbies or a pro.
I found this to be a very great gun overall, especially if your a woods-ball marksman like me, but it is also great for storming and puts down so serious firepower
HPA or Expansion chamber or Remote Hose
Anti Chop Bolt
Performs out of the box
Awesome in woodsball
Has a very nice look to it. The Mr1 will definitely outperform a tippmann 98. There are not a lot of upgrades for it but you really don't need alot. The loudness will scare alot of noobs but it will also give away your position if your a sniper or in hiding. Overall its a great gun.
I would recommend this marker for woods players and people who like guns they can do whatever the heck the want to do with the gun without breaking it.
