Meh, all guns have problems, never think a new gun is going to magically have no issues.

I have had plenty of issues with my spyders, but usually its my fault, I have however seen plenty of spyders work flawlessly.

My spyder works great. Even though its the MR1, I need a faster hopper.

Way ahead of ya man...I'm trying to sell my MR2 right now (good luck) and I've already got a mechanical Autococker, it shoots like a dream compared to any Kingman I've shot. The amount of kick (less) compared to a mechanical Spyder is golden.

I gotta admit....I had TONS of issues with the MR2 as well. It took alot of time and patience to work out all of the bugs which created the whole CHOP issue. Prbly was not worth all of the time and aggrevation, and extra cost to finally fix it....but it was a pride issue to MAKE the darn thing work right, I suppose. I certainly cannot blame anyone for seeing the light earlier than I, and moving on before ending up putting labor and parts into something which really wasnt worth it in the first place, and eventually sinking enough into it to equal the cost of an Angel G7 (...counting labor of course).

Best of luck on your new choice, and I hope it brings you the enjoyment that paintball should be about.

I guess I am one of the lucky ones, the only time I ever had any chopping issues with my MR2 is when I was using 3 month old paint. (thats with the stock bolt)

i have a VS3 and never...i mean never chopped a ball when the eyes are on
maybe i'm lucky
maybe i just cant walk as fast as some
but it shoots fast enough to keep heads down
and the only time i have ever had a problem with the eyes is when i took a ball down the barrel
other then that i would have to say the VS3 is a solid investment
just my 2 cents though
