My local pro shop had one of these on the wall today. Man it was HEAVY... Nice but heavy.

I wonder how well it will sell?

It would be a great alternative for folks currently looking at Tippmans, and the new BT line

haha .. yeah .. they're coming right back for the AMG model ... it's more for senario players ... but i like the trigger frame on the MR1 ... which they really should have done on the MR2 ... i don't really like how it's a powerfeed though ...

they made it powerfeed to resemble a real gun....you know how they have the sights down the top of the barrel

The trigger frame on it looks nice, and it does 20bps. I wonder when they'll become available for single purchase....:questionicon:

It's OldSchool too. I have a powerfeed on two of my spyders. I think they made it powerfeed so you could actually use a sight/scope on it. A lot of scenario players use them, so it would be more appealing them. I don't know about the frames.. They'll probably just come out with another thing like the Sprint.. except aluminium.

was always wondering about when kingman would have a gun that you could attach scopes n stuff to. i would have prefferd a gun with rails on it, some of those milsim guns are way to heaavy to begin with, before adding anything

That frame was designed specifically for the MR2. It would not work with any other model Spyder.

The MR guns might be heavier than other Spyders but the weight distributes very nicely.

The MR2 and MR1 are now available at AV.

hmm, maybe its heavy for the same reason that tippys are heavy...to make it INDESTRUCTABLE. if thats the case, looks like tippman has some serious competition... it'll be like a 98 with good aftermarket parts available!

I own an MR1 I dont know how much heavier the MR2 is but I ran mine with a remote and it was nice, the stock worked grat (without the bottle under it)
I had a laser sight attachet to the top but took it off. without a doubt one of the toughest guns ive used, I abused the hell out of it in sand dirt mud u name it and it fired flawlessly.

The easiest answer here is "very well". So far, every shipment we've received has sold out in less than a day. I can't give you specific numbers... but the marker is definitely selling as expected.

Regarding the trigger frame, we had to make it different due to the electronics (as opposed to the grip on the MR1).

As for the weight... yes, we did that on purpose to give it more stability. You'll notice that when firing the marker there is very little movement, thus increasing your accuracy.

We are currently working on some scopes/sights etc... I'll post something here when they're released.

Oh yeah, Tippmann is toast... just watch.

P.S.
The MR2 board has a cap at 25 shots per second... not 20. Just to clarify.

So would that possibly mean if I were to get an MR1 I couldn't add an existing e-frame to it or does that comment specifically pertaing to the MR2? -

I put an E-fram off of a spyder E99,it worked fine. Im going to run the Egrip this weekend for a full feild test

So the bottom contour of the body matches the top contour of the ESP or CAMD frame from your E-99? -

they made it powerfeed to resemble a real gun..

Sorry to burst your bubble.... but it's not a powerfeed (originally from the Automag) but it's a strait feed offset 45 degrees to the right.

That being said, the feed neck bolts to the body with a couple of screws that will allow Kingman *cough* to maybe *cough* make a powerfeed upgrade :)
