The VS1 or MR1? Im using a CO2 tank and a VL hopper with a CAT tail so im not sure. Both guns have their positives and negatives though. I like the MR1 due to its military look and the removable stock, not to mention the rust-proof paint job. I like the VS1 because it has the 3 shooting modes and the tournament look to it. Now, I am a guy who has used the old modeled Spyder Xtra for the last 2 years and I love it and the 12" barrel included with it was awesome. Now, im also used to a mechanical trigger, although I have used an electric one before. Thx for all the help! Oh yes, also, what is a chop? Because I see it has an anti-chop system...?

chopping is the bolt breaking the paint. the anti chop system is either the ACS bolt or an electronic trigger with eyes. if you plan on playing speedball in the future, i'd jump strait to the new RS, since its basically a VS2 that can run off co2. if you're strictly woodsball, id get the MR1 with eye. same functions as the VS but has more of a scenario look.

Get a Reloader 2 hopper, then. The Quantum has been proven to pull balls out of markers.

Since you're playing rec, I don't think that you'd be willing to go for an RS due to the price tag, so I'm going to say VS1.

Yea, im leaning toward the VS1 due to so many features compared to the MR1 the only real phisical difference is the tournament vs military looks. Whats a reloader hopper?

Ok, so where can I find accesories like barrels and grips for the VS1? I would get the VS2 but price and the fact that I dont have an air tank...yea.

i have a vs1 and a good friend of mine has the mr1. I have to say there both good guns but the vs1 is better since it shoots 20 bps and has eyes so it doesn't chop balls. Also if you want to play speed ball some day you can with the vs1. Plus the vs1 can run on hpa and co2. I like the vs1 trigger a lot more too, plus the vs1 has 3 round burst and semi. Get the VS1 or the RS if you have the cash because its a lot better then the vs1 for the price.

you can pretty much get anything you need for paintball here, barrels, markers, paint balls, masks, pods, co2 tanks, etc...

i recommend you get your gun on ebay theres some good deals on there.

any other questions?

get either the rs or the vs1 because the vs2 only runs on hpa and a hpa tank costs $55 for a ****y tank and $150 for a good one.

$110 vs1 on ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/Spyder-Vs1-Paintball-Gun_W0QQitemZ260225470495QQihZ016QQcategoryZ47248Q QssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)

spyder RS $199.99 (http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Kingman-Spyder-RS-Paintball-Marker-Gun-w-Eyes_W0QQitemZ330224863648QQihZ014QQcategoryZ16048 QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)

if i where you it sounds like your on a tite budget so i would go with the vs1 and spend the extra money on a nice mask and some good paintballs.

If you are going to get the VS1 I recommend shopping at a Dics sporting goods. Buy there No sweat warranty then call the 1 800 number tell then it broke and they will send you a gift card to dics for the amount you paid. It will allow you to get more items if you are looking to save a little money. I had my gift card in about a week and was up at dics buying more items. Hope this helps.
