mr 2 is the best if u get a good hopper good ball detenets and some decent paint it doesnt chop mr 3 is too expensive.

ball detenenents help with the double feed and choping problems but i think that kingman fixed that problem

i'm a little confused now ( not about what your saying ) why would the mr2 be better than a 98 custom with e grip it only cost 200 when the mr2 cost $250 plus the tippman can reach 30 bps then you change the trigger to double trigger then wouldn't it be better than the mr2 plus it is lighter? please help know why the mr2 is better or not.

My gun is more accurate, consistant, faster, alot more durrable he was having alot of trouble with the marker acting up, seals ect. on semi there wasnt a comparison at all. The MR2 was just better all around.

So everyone likes the MR3 its just a little to expensive?

I played one weeked where this guy had a custom tippman, the first game of the day his stock broke off and after that his gun was useless. It lost its air seal. This told me something about durability, I have fallen down a embankment(I never said I was graceful) and my MR2 was a little scratched but work superbly.
If you want a gun you can use everyday and not have to be gentle with. Go with a MR2

I agree and I dont know what to say differently then I already have, the MR2 just compleatly outclassed the custom. It wouldnt be a choice in my eyes, the decision would be clear.

So i take it the MR1 isnt that popular? No one voted for that one, is this just because it is a michanical marker?

that might be one reason. another could be because there is no acs bolt or eyes. although you can use any barrel and put any trigger frame on it.

Can you buy and ACS bolt for it? or does the MR2 bolt fit that model as well?
For the MR series are most parts interchangeble between the 3 guns?

internally they can all be interchanged, but the mr2 and mr3 use the new infinity trigger frames and the only other spyder that uses it is the vs2, theyed only be able to fit the vs3 but no other spyder, the mr2 and mr3 bodies are milled to fit infinity trigger frames and no other

the mr1 can use any kingman trigger frame besides the infinity

other than the bodies and the trigger frame its all the same, and can be interchanged

i find the mr1 is better for a entry level woodsballer but as you progress and get more serious about the sport you will eventually want to go mr2. but i find the mr3 is just too pricy for the gun itself when u can buy the e trigger for the mr2 and it will still b cheaper than the mr3

Buy the E trigger for the MR2? I dont comprenday amigo. Or do you mean the E grip for the MR1?

I personally love the MR2, just bought a second one(only $150.00-USD) matter of fact.

The MR3 from what i've seen is really not that different from the MR2 w/ exception of the eyes, from what I gather from MR3 owners the eyes are only functional during semi-mode anyways. When you go full-auto the eyes are disabled. I really don't see the point. I initially had problems with chopping out of the box, but once I figured out what the marker needs to run smoothly, I had no more problems with chopping. So I don't see the need to go with eyes...but that's just me. Seems to be a bit overkill if you ask me (IMO).

The T-board is nice, but alot of fields put a cap on the ROF so the 13bps on auto is more than enough for me, and once I did the trigger mod to my MR2 switch, semi-auto ROF was perfect. Especially now that I'm using a q-loader!

im trying to get a tboard myself with eyes and mill the mr2 body for eyes, i removed the acs and use the low blow bolt and it chops because the eggy is too slow for me

I was thinking about getting the T board, but what all advantages does it give you?

The halo B and the q-loader solved my chopping problems. I've heard of others with the eggy experienceing chopping issues. This marker is just very fickle when it comes to the feeding force of the ball stack.

Hopefully the eyes work out for you, just make sure you have everything perfect for the eyes, once you start milling the body, there's no turning back!

i only want eyes, and the other modes are interesting, and ramping for the speedball field

im trying to get a halo b right now, i wanted a qloader but it cost alot, the eggy is alright but i really cant get my fingers going that fast without expecting either a jam or chop,

internally my mr2 is fully upped, the only stock thing is the striker, other than that i have my mr2 tuned to run around 350 psi, ive spent a $300 already,
heres what i got
2 hpa tanks - one carbonfiber and 1 steelie,
a cp shorty reg,
spring kit
j&j 14"
magna port high flow valve
acp low blow bolt
eggy hopper,

thats my setup, i dont use scopes or remotes, i was looking into getting an apex and a redot scope,

has anyone put an offset rail on their mr2? i was think about putting one

i got my hands on a mr3 yesterday real nice but i dont think you can do that much to it because of the fore grips shape.
also the shroud is real long putting a m16 or ak shroud would look horrible. the mr3 has no burst and eyes only works on semi. the r.o.f. is the same as the mr2.
Mr2 is better you can do alot more with it and it looks better, the r.o.f. is the same and it has burst wich the mr3 doesnt
plus you can pick up an mr2 for 150.

NASTYSTANKWEED,

Thanks for your input as an owner of the MR3, really helps those of us members to make informed decisions about purchsaing the right marker for our individual needs.

I had totally forgotten to mention the lack of burst fire....good catch! Plus the shroud and foregrip combination really limits you to a very few barrel options and modifying the marker to a specific look. You're pretty much stuck with the stock look. I personally and I know not everyone is like this, but I like to make my marker stand out from the crowd and make it mine.

I overall think the MR2 is the better choice of the three if your looking to upgrade from your first marker. If you are new to the sport, I always think a good mechanical trigger marker is a good, inexpensive way to go. Also helps you understand the basics of how the markers operate without getting into complicated dealings with electronic trigger frames.

Spyder on!
