when I picked the MR1 I ment stock, no triggers ect. I love how simple it is and cheep you dont need anything for the marker to work well. Just oil air up and go, but as stated I have never had any problem with the MR2 W/eye. as for the none of the above option wouldnt fit the poll question now would it

It would be the MR2 acs I never used the MR2 w/ eyes.... I really haven't had any problems with my MR2 acs..........I've owned it for over a year......Does the eyes make a huge difference???

However, the MR1 is my backup gun and when anyother gun fails me this one always works doesnt matter the temp, you dont need fancy hopper ect for it to work really well.
I have to agree I just got a BT, TM-7 and wanted to use it on the last senario with Slim and tested it on Friday (it worked)and then on Satuday after driving to Edmonton it did not work and because it is so fancy I could not fix it. It is a good thing that I brought my MR-1 to use as a back up and had an awsome day with it too.
My vote is the MR-1 because its a tank and all ways seems to work.

With all these people say'n back up gun..... why not just use the MR1 all the time....

Thats what I'm doing, its my first ever paintball gun, I didnt want a gun that looks like its from outer space, or cost more than a heart transplant... Its simple and just works all the time.

Went out to the fields and a guy asked what I shot, told him a Wal-Mart special........... I didnt say what................ he said ow they sale junk, cant get parts for them and so on.... then I said its a Spyder MR1. He still said I should have got a Tippman 98.........

I'm keeping my MR1 and will shoot the guys when his gun stops working on him and yell its from Wal-Mart and still shooting !

dissagreed, The MR with eyes has a few major flaws

~not LP.
~off set feedneck and it will cost much more to get a clamping low/no rise feed neck on it.
~the valve spring is non standard and is difficult to get a hold of a lighter one for the conversion of LP
~most regs don't fit well with removal of the shroud
~grips are cheap and if tighten to much will restrict solenoid movement



^^all of the above are in the VS/RS and 08/9 electra so for the same price why would i want an mr when i can pick up a VS2 and spray paint it black for less?

because the question didnt ask what spyder marker you thought was best, it asked what one of the MR series




damn varmin anyway!


EDIT: Shouldnt do this because it will drag it further off topic but perhaps some of these are reasons why people would go with the MR series over the guns you mentioned. For one alot of people (Me included) think alot of the speedball markers are just plain ugly. Some people would rather hold something that looks a little more uhhhhh realistic? (for lack of a better discription) you can make the MR 2 LP if you choose, there are regs that work and fit rather well with the shroud (CP long and short) and the feedneck is all personal preferance I hate top feed markers and the large hopper that sits on top of them. Granted that with the hoppoer on top its a slimer profile but to me its just in the way, blocks vision ect. the grips do suck there is no denying that! but the aftermarket ones are only 18$ not much at all. So to sum it up I suppose its whatever the user desiers and fits there style of play.

Don't forget what happened to my RSX's feedneck with some rough woodsball play...

It was stripped out after I took a nice trip.
