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.
I have the Kingman Spyder sonix
I used this because my friend let me use it once
Blue Body kit
Blue Ion Q lock
Halo B w/ Rip drive Blue (had an Empire reloader not the reloader B)
Blue CP reg
This is a very good gun you really get around the feild with this gun. You really can do lots with this gun you can get a scope. You can aim without one because the hopper is not in the way of the sight so you can see right throuhg it and can aim but if your are like me and you play speedball you won't have time to aim.
16 Smart Parts Liner barrel
Diablo TSA Loader
barrel (stock good for stock but loud)
I have heard a few and only a few horror stories about the ball detent
This is a great beginer/intermedate marker i highly recomend it. Kingman is filnally stepping up to Tippmann to bring some varity in the scenaro/woodsball games. If you need to fix your ball detant then simply e-mail the tech dept. at kingman and they will send you a new one. The gun comes with a 1 year full warenty so dont try to make a new ball detant just take the time to contact kingman and get it done rite. They are very helpful.
GREAT GUN< GREAT PRICE it gets a nine because nothing is perfect
Spyder Xtra , Smk Commando 2, Spyder Pilot ,Mirage and more
Spyder Mr1 With 12" - 24" Barrel Upgrade
Red Dot System
Red Dot Or Laser
PRICE! Is Exellent!
Looks the dogs B%$@OX!
Nice Accurate Gun
Elbow Provided is low quality
the rail is too short
It is only recently that i have purchased the mr1, it caught my eye with its stylish looks, affordable price and because spyder are a quality make! Before this i had been using a smk commando 2, which isnt bad but when tested togther the Syder RULES!!
I found this gun very accurate with its standard barrel, it has an exellent build quality and to me its somthing new with its style, it looks more like the real deal instead of just being a paintball gun.
The one thing i am glad about, is that i use AIR not Co2 because this gun does not have a volumizer which could hurt co2 users.
All in all this gun i exellent, its got great looks, awesome fire power, and is a good overall marker for an affordable price! Get One Trust ME!!
Remote if you don't like to have the tank on the marker.
New Barrel, the stock one is the best i have seen on stock ( Low Semis) but is not close as good as a 20 - 30 dollars ones
Solid has a rock
Easy to clean and disassemble
The stock useless, you cant aim.
The 7/8 rail to short.
If you like to play woodsball or milsim this marker is veary reliable. I will recomend to use it with a remote, since it weight little more than the usual Semi Spyder ( just as much as a Tipmann 98).
The internal Parts are just the same as other Spyders semi. All Black with no shining parts to expose you.
On the other hand spyder din't make a good job on the design of it. 2 big mistakes the useless Stock ( How hard is to test the marker an see the stock won let use the sight) and the Small and Fat 7/8 Sight rail ( Why they dint use a sight rail as the MR2 ? ).
I just made the Mod on the stock, i cut the staight part of it and it works!!!! so no more problems with the stock... and it looks as a modern AK stock... so i change it to a 9 because is a veary easy mod.
Good Price,Good stock barrell,Nice looks, Wothless Stock and sight rail, little heavy and loud ( A guy gun....... sorry marker ).

The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion on the comments page.
Period of Product Use:
Less than a month
1 of 11 people found this review helpful.
Similar Products Used:
Spyder One orginal only other marker I've used.
Original Spyder One with subzero forgrip, windforce 12' barrel, remote line with 20oz CO2
Different stock that allows more facemask room, red dot sight, upgrade to mid/high quality bolt and a motorized hopper.
Very sturdy feeling, light weight, good price point.
Iron sights useless, chops paint bad and jams, loud report, manf. stock.
Found at Walmart for $100 and was very excited about this marker. Ready to go out of the box. Got to the field and started playing with a gravity feed hopper. Immediatley starts chopping paint. Played five games in a row and cut paint off the starting line every time. Not happy about this. Stripped the bolt and cleaned it out, removed the feed tube (not the elbow) to clean out the goo <paint> and on reinsterting one of the three screws, stripped both the screw and the bolt holes threads WITHOUT forcing the screw. Not happy about this even more so. Continued to play and after a few more hours noticed the rubber grips were pealing already. Not happy about this. Finished the day using my Spyder One.
This is a great design that was built poorly. Good possibility that I just had a defective marker out of the box, but on the first day, I stripped a screw/bolt hole, grips are pealing, and it cutts paint roughly every game. If it had just been one of these problems I could have worked with it and contiued to be happy, but there shouldn't be this many problems with a new product on the first day out. Returned for full refund to Walmart. I give this a below average rating for the experience I've had with it.
Stock - Out of the box. Viewmaster 200 round gravity feed. CO2.
Lightweight. Good value. Nice features for the money.
Misfired twice on first game. Shoots way too fast out of the box.
I paid C$150. The marker comes with the double-trigger, the stock, and the drop-forward. Compare that to about C$190 for a 98C which has none of those features.
It's much lighter and better-balanced than the 98C. The double-trigger is much lighter than the 98C's single-trigger. The weight is much better balanced than the 98C, thanks in part to the drop-forward.
I had no problems with the ball detente, which is a common complaint. Worked fine for me.
One problem: The gun misfired twice. I jiggled the cocking knob and it worked again. Maybe a new bolt is in order?
Disclaimer: I played with this once at an indoor field. I'll update this review as I play more, and play outside in the muck and the rain.
Update: Took it out to an outdoor field. When they chronoed the marker it was firing at 319 fps, and I couldn't lower it any with the velocity adjuster, so they wouldn't let me use it. The stock spring was simply too stiff. I had to rent a 98C that day, and now I have to get a spring kit. Not happy.
Update: Got a Shocktech spring kit. Once the new spring was installed, it worked like a dream.
So far, I've used it three times, and I had to get some kinks worked out. I've heard from guys with other markers (yes, even the A-5), that growing pains aren't unusual. Still, not being able to get the marker below 319 fps out-of-the-box was REALLY frustrating. Bottom line is, I'm very happy, but if you buy one make SURE you get a spring kit along with it. The stock spring is just too iffy.

My friend bought this gun from Wal-Mart today for $99.97. I figured it would suck. I was wrong. It reminded me of my A-5, except a lot cheaper. very good buy. Great for sniping. Can't wait to see it in action this weekend during a woodsball game. I would definently recommend it after testing it. Very fun to shoot.
If you like to sit back and pick your spot i would request it.
14" AIM barrel
Remote line w/ 20 oz co2 tank
Empire Reloader hopper
Play with stock on for woodsball/scenario, stock off for speedball
As always, the barrel, but the stock barrel is excellent as well
A remote line, otherwise playing with the stock on, the butt end seems bulky
Ease of use
Easy to clean
Good straight out of the box
No factory upgrades (YET!!)
Strenghts: First are the looks. This gun isn't meant to imitate any military weapon I've seen( at least that the USAF uses), but it looks pretty awesome with the full setup. If anything, I'd say it looks like an M-4 without the grip on the barrel. Anyways, the gun looks really good with the black finish and stock attached, though it looks great without the stock as well.
This is a VERY durable gun. I usually play woodsball and scenario games with my AF buddies, so I end up trekking through mud, water, rocks, bushes, anything you can think of. I have yet to see a bit of rust or wear on the gun, no ball breaks (somewhat attributed to my e-loader), and it still fires like it did the day I bought it.
It is incredibly easy to use, cock the bolt, pull the trigger, that simple.
The field strippable bolt is very nice. I can disassemble, clean, oil, and reassemble the bolt incredbily fast in te field.
It fires great straight out of the box, the barrel is pretty accurate, but as always I'd reccommend an after-market barrel for it. As I mentioned above, a remote line is nice if you plan on using the detachable stock a lot. If you stick even a 9 oz tank ont the end with that stock it gets pretty bulky and doesn't look as nice in my opinion.
This sucker is LOUD. This could be a good or bad thing. When I fire my marker, it turns heads. People want to see what made the noise, and in my opinion, it adds to the military feel of the gun. On the other hand, if you play sniper, or just like a quieter gun, then this may be a problem.
I have used both the A-5 and 98 Custom from Tippmann and I definitly like this marker more. There aren't many upgrades (yet), but it is a great gun out of the box. You won't be disappointed.
GX-4 chaos series cocker red to black fade, all american 2-piece 14",72/3000 pure energy,12-volt revvy, dye stickies
Best stock barrel ive ever used for a spyder
Cant take a reg w/o loseing the looks
When i got the gun first thing i noticed was the gun is very sturdy feels like it could take a beating. The stock barrel is amazing for a stock best stock i have ever used. I like the clean line of sight down the barrel. For all you people that want to buy a cheapo spyder and supe it up this isnt the gun for u to add regs or x-chambers youd have to remove the magazine style gas thru grip and ad a va losing the whole look of the gun and for many the reason they bought it.
For backyards woodsball players who are sick of tippmanns i like it more than mine very durable and accurate
kingman spyder mr1
custom 25 inch barrel
camo trigger and grips
trigger if your not going to be a sniper
Very easy to operate
Chops about every 1 out of 500 balls
Long trigger pull
Loud people hear you all over the field without a custom barrel
Over all this is a very good and reliable gun for the average sniper. It is also very accurate when you don't have any upgrades on it and you really almost never break any balls and when you do it is very easy to clean the barrel. Just be very careful when traveling with it. it looks like a real gun and you might get shot.
I recommend this to any person that wants a good sniping gun. or for anybody that is new to the game and needs a good cheap gun
