Either one would be a good gun to get you started. If you want to get an electric gun I would suggest getting the new Pilot but if you just want to get a mechanical gun then the MR1 would be good.

I would get the MR1 its the marker I recomend to anyone just getting started. Why because it works everytime. easy to clean ect. for your first marker I would stick to a mech for a first marker, just more simple until you get the hang of things.

Ok thanks for your impute guys, Im gonna be picking the mr1 up pretty soon.

I have one question though, if i were to buy a apex tip or barrel, would it fit this gun? and should i just go with compressed air right off the bat, or start off with co2? thanks

The Apex would fit as long as the barrel is Spyder threaded.

Compressed air if you have money, otherwise CO2.

You'll probably want to invest in a better barrel (probably not apex) and an electronic hopper.

I love the apex and say go for it, Grab HPA and you will be doing great. If you have a little extra cash get a locking feedneck

If you have the money definatly go with HPA. I also use the Apex tip on alot of my barrels and really like it. If you are going to get an electic hopper don't do what I did and just buy one. Have a plan on how and what you want. I went through 3 electric ones untill I got my Q-loader. 2 are now used to load the Q-pods(1 for me and 1 for Slim) and one is my loaner. Just trying to save you some money. Clamping feed neck is a great idea as well.

no you cant just buy a tip, unless you can get one off a BST.

and 2 it wouldnt fit on the stock barrel unless you either milled, dremeled or somehow turned the tip down a little bit.(diameter wise)
