What type of paintball do you play, woods, scenario or speed?

If you play speed at all I would highly recommend an electronic frame.

If you never/rarely play speedballl and mainly play woods just go mechanical.

Oh, Welcome to the forum!

MR2 without a doubt if you wanna see some upgrades that can be done to one look in my signature.

I'd go the other way and get an MR1. Playing woodsball a mechanical trigger will go plenty fast for you and you'll save paint. You'll also save money by spending less on the marker and in saving paint. In all the times I've played woodsball, I've never had the need to really unload on someone. I've played woodsball with my Ego and it was way over kill. I say go mechanical, thats just my opinion though.

When I used to go to scenerio I got into alot of firefights. That's why I upgraded my MR2 so much. It will keep up with anything on the woodsball field and out shoot most. If you put the right parts on them they will compete.

DONT GET AN MR-1! i've had so many problems with mine. whenever i run out of Co2, my front grip frame screw will fall out. my back one will also loosen up. this caused a misfire in staging last time i played. luckily i had my barrel plug in :D. well this is starting to get off topic so i will give you my answer now. i would go MR-2

mr-1's a great gun. Your gun would be just fine with a little loctite and make sure all the screws are tight before you play.

all the screws are tight before i play. i'll try loctite if i have troubles today when i go play

also you may try to find some red loctite. The blue stuff can be mechanically removed with tools but the red requires heat and tools.

Loctitie can your friend or worst enemy depending on the situation and of course color used.

Go with a mechanical MR-1... Here's why -

1.) Cheaper than the E MR-1, and the MR-2.
2.) Can be upgraded to an electronic frame for less than $40.
3.) Tougher than hell, and easy to take care of.
4.) Easier to upgrade the barrel, and becomes "mil-sim" with a few cheap upgrades very quickly.
5.) With the right ups, you can do both speedball and scenario w/o much headache, and woodsball too.
6.) Works exceptionally well w/ CO2 which is cheaper than compressed air.
7.) Comes in matte-black, which the E MR-1 does not.
