Products Used:
Tippman A5 and 98 and one or two Spyders and the SP8.
Marker Setup: Kingman Spyder MR3 with just a VLocity Viewloder and a Pure Energy 1.1 Ltr 4500 PSI Fiber Rap Tank so far - Hey I need to use it a few times, and see what its strengths and weaknesses are before "pimping" it. Its about buying the right parts not showing how much disposible income you have!
Recommended
Upgrades:
So far none but I'll try and update you as I use and abuse the gun!
Strengths: Solid
Well built
Ergonomic
Reliable
Weaknesses: Grip Panels fit too losely
Without a stock attached the bolt is 'open'.
Review: I bought this marker after selling an A5 and rather than an SP8 and I'm not sorry I bought it! Well this marker is solidly built. Its easy to take apart and clean and its easy to put back together. Much, much easier than my A5! It is metal but for the foregrip (which is VERY solid plastic and the grip covers that house the electronics - more on them later) and feels like its not about to break through vigorous woodsball. I also found the gun quite 'ergonomic' - something which is much more important than looks! I've used it only twice so far but each time it was for almost a whole days play (6 to 8 hours) and I fired off 1500+ paintballs. Even with the stock barrel it is on target and reliable over a reasonable distance in normal conditions. The whole time I used it I had just one ball burst in my barrel and I think that was only because while crawling through a bush I managed to get a twig in it.

Now this where my lovely new marker loses its 'perfect 10'! The main with the MR3 is small, but could potentially store up problems for users because of a requirement for maintenance, and it is also something I feel Kingman could and should rectify. The "270 MR3 Grip Panels" on the MR3 are not a perfect fit and as a result there is a narrow gap that could allow dirt and moisture to get in and damage the 'brain' of your lovely MR3 (If there was an option, I'd post a pic to show you what I mean). The other minor problem is without the stock attached, the Venturi Bolt is 'open' allowing dirt to get in to your marker. If you want to attach a tank direct to your marker you'll want to remove the stock. Kingman or some after market supplyer needs to produce a 'cover' to protect your marker from dirt and grime when you don't want to use the stock (again if I could I'd post a pic, but you can go on the the Kingman site and open the Pdf. manual and have a look for yourself).
Conclusion: All in all the MR3 is one of the best woodsball type markers I've used. A good reliable marker which misses out on a 10 because of two minor problems that hopefully Kingman or an aftermarked supplier can hopefully sort.

Products Used:
Tippy 98's, A5's w/ Egrips, RAP4's, various other milsim markers
Marker Setup: MR3 with J&J, Apex, CMI Thunderpig 19", HPA, remote line, Empire reloader B
Recommended
Upgrades:
Not sure anything is out there yet.
Strengths: Ssimilar in weight to other milsims, nice feel / size , modes on grip, ease of cleaning
Weaknesses: Rechargeable battery, certain barrels wont fit.
Review: Got an SP8 (early one) and it would not feed consistently, traded it out for the MR3, really liked the feel of this marker, easy to maneuver around, good looks and it shot very nice right out of the box. I have an APEX on it which looks great and gives you the advantage of the longer shots that an APEX is capable of, also the J&J which is nice for accuracy and the CMI sniper barrel which helps to quite it down some. The marker flat out works, its easy to carry, and the ease of breakdown is very nice... Had an issue with VooDoo paint breaking a lot in it, (found out later a lot of people had problems that day with it), went to INK (FPO Field), and had no more breaks the rest of the day... It was pretty good on air (I ran a 92/45) and only filled up once but shot a case and 1/2 during that game...
Change out the barrel, that's the only real upgrade that someone has to do right away and the J&J 14 is a good low cost choice...

The only thing I don't like is the rechargeable battery, I can't replace that and during a 2-3 day big game, this could be an issue, although some say you can use std. 9 volts...

Kingman did well with this marker and you can find it for about 230 at most places... That compares with a basic A5 with out having to add an RT or Egrip... It also has the rails to "dress" it up, and the hopper choice is wide for this marker... Now if Qloader would make a setup for it!

IF the aftermarket starts adding "stuff" for this platform, it should be a long term player
Conclusion: This is a great alternative to the A5's, 98's and other milsim markers out there. With the range of barrels (make sure they fit in the shroud), and ease of cleaning, this is a marker that should be given serious consideration...

Upgrades:
HPA Bottle, Remote line and a feeder capable of 17bps or faster!
Strengths: ACS bolt, eyes adjustable stock, elevated sight rail, long forgrip
Weaknesses: nothing that can't be remedied with a little money! Aftermarket selection is sparce
Review: I'm an old timer (33) I am also new to the sport. The field I play at is mostly inhabited by Tippman lovers. I am one of 2 people who have chosen an E spyder. I can't say enough how satisfied I am with my MR3 as it is set up. Just yesterday I had a Tippman guy put his flatline barrel back on and consider the purchase of a body kit and e-grip for his A5 (after seeing my MR3). I spent a good deal of the day answering questions regarding my MR3! One A5 carrying fellow paint slinger made a comment on the issue of MR series spyders having chopping issues. Rather than go in to a long speech I simply fired off 400 balls on full auto to demonstrate that there is no issue!
Conclusion: In conclusion with the very narrow but proper setup the thing is a firehose!

-48ci/3000psi pure energy tank

Strengths: Easy to hit targets, durable, low maintenance
Weaknesses: Grips, handle, size and weight, trigger
Review: I tested this gun today briefly, because my friend was shopping of for his first gun and he wants a spyder. First he really liked mr2 and he had his heart set on one...than he wanted a pilot acs, eventually he got the mr2 but he tested this one out before he said no.

I think kingman over did this one...its big and heavy, and i could not imagine using it for speedball. its got great sight down the gun and easy to use...without a mask on. its durable and its a spyder so u know its low maintenance. The trigger is definetly not meant for walking, even though they say it is 25bps.
Conclusion: Its an ok gun if u like that sort of thing...few problems but its decent...im gonna give it a 7 for being average.
