Default Re: mr2 or tippmann a-5

I belive internally the MR2 is more speedball ina woodsball shell, or designe. Many people I have talked to who use the Mr2 do use it for speedball. mostly after they put a little more into it for low pressure though. but i personaly think it would be a competeter(sp) in that particular style of paintball.

ive shot an a5, and my friends dad had one. the one real flaw in the design was the hopper. because it uses really small hoses and fittings that run to the hopper, if the hose leaks, your hopper is screwed. another reason i'd get an mr2 is because you dont have to add an eframe, and im not sure if they make anti-chop bolts for the a5.

yeah like he said, mr2 does a good job at shutting up guys. specially those who have semi automatic guns. i suggest you get the mr2, the a-5 is a great marker dont get me wrong, but the e frame is far too expensive. the a-5 is durable and all that, but the mr2 is very durable and is automatic, and very accurate. i suggest if you are going to buy the mr2, buy it from a site like www.xtremez.com because i bought mine there for about 170 bucks.


there it is, brand new, cheaper than the a-5 with the e frame. plus, the bps is faster on a mr2 (25 bps in semi) in semi than the a-5 is. i dont know about full auto, but a-5 claims to shoot 15 in full auto, but semi seems to be so much for fun if you ask me....
