    The MR2 is just like every other marker, it can be adjusted with the velocity adjuster to your preference for shooting. I’ve shot low 220fps with this just to have fun with some new players, and I have shot 300fps to get some good distance and impacts.

    As for the cost? It was $200, but I believe Spyder discontinued them… So it will be a treasure hunt trying to find one of these gems.

    Hope this helps.

    i ran out of room to mention that if you want one, if you search Spyder MR2 on ebay they are on there. its got a picture of the mr2 with the stock on along with the battery and charger and the barrel plug and a plain white background. the sellers name was mcpro2 and it cost $119.99 and free shipping. also forgot to mention that it also included a new elbow that i would deffinatelly recomend upgrading to the trinity aluminum locking style and a barrel plug. DID NOT INCLUDE a hopper.

    i got the gun today. overall it was in good shape except for your adverage wear and small paint chips. the gun was completely refirbished and came with a 1 month warrenty from the company that did it. the battery needed to be charged before use so i havent gotten a chance to shoot it yet. i would deffinatelly recomend anyone who wants an MR2 to look here. the box was very small but had the marker, barrel, stock, stock screw, charger and battery in it. it didnt come with any instructions or tools

    That’s good to hear. I’ve got a few emails from people looking to buy an MR2 W/eye, and they are very disappointed that they can not find any. Let us know your conclusions.

    I’ve tried to buy one on Spyder’s website… and it doesn’t let you. As soon as you go to click the “buy” button, you get redirected to another page, then you have to re-click MR series, and the Spyder MR2 is not listed for purchase.

    I do not know for sure, but I have heard this rumor from a few Kingman forums. They were saying that it had removed from production unless they get a popular demand for it’s return. Damn shame… Great marker.

    @gdeisig Did they discontinue the MR2 I can’t find it any where?

  16. gdeisig on August 30th, 2010 9:35 am

    Yes, a regular 9volt battery will work fine. It probably won’t last as long. But still should shoot quite a few cases of paint. If you don’t have the battery and charger, I would actually recommend it. Because you will save so much money, and it only cost 40 dollars for the battery and charger as a combo. If you get a rechargeable energizer or duracell, I would not recommend charging it with the gun charger, as it may blow up.

    thanks, and i have another question, could you just use batteries to use it as well?

  18. gdeisig on August 30th, 2010 10:10 am

    Your MR2 should have come with the DC charger, it just simply plugs into your markers trigger frame. (on the back) and any standard 110v outlet. The light on the charger will light up red while charging, and will turn green when done, i do believe.

  19. richhunter13576 on August 30th, 2010 10:46 am

    how do you charge this gun? cuz i just got a mr2 and i’ve been wondering on how to charge this

  20. PaintBall3R64 on August 30th, 2010 11:10 am

    So can you install eyes into an MR2 that originally did not come with eyes?? cause i have no one in my area who could help me out (no local paintball store)

  21. AirgunAddict256 on August 30th, 2010 11:51 am

    hey i know i’m going to buy a Spyder because i’m not rich but which should i get? the Pilot 09 or the new MR2 with eyes? i play all types of paintball except for scenario and i hate renting guns. i don’t play paintball that often but i do on birthdays and my whole class has a blast, but i’m sick of renting guns because i always get a bad one.

    so which should i get? the Pilot 09 or the MR2, and what mods should i put on the gun? (like aftermarket parts) i wanna spend as little money as possible

    nice review thanks for the info and your pistol review was very nice keep up the good work

  23. decimator22 on August 30th, 2010 12:54 pm

    Try a 48/4500 Tank.

  24. gdeisig on August 30th, 2010 1:27 pm

    Your gun releases excess CO2 because CO2 gets very very cold the faster you shoot, and will actually shoot out “snow and ice”. If you go with high pressure air, you won’t have that problem any more. As for inaccuracy? The flatline barrels aren’t very accurate, they are just for distance. If you want accuracy, there are plenty of aftermarket barrels that work very well, but won’t go as far as the flatlines. Also keep your flatline clean. And the better the paint, the better the accuracy.

  25. gdeisig on August 30th, 2010 2:11 pm

    I’ve actually had this problem, and I think I solved it. You should not be able to pinch a ball between the bolt and feed tube with the eyes on, because the eyes shouldn’t let the marker fire until the ball is all the way down. So this confused me!? And I came to the conclusion that when you fire at a high rate, (using CO2) the ice and snow actually blocks the eyes! Making it think that there’s a ball there. I’ve switch to high pressure air (HPA) and I have not had a single problem ever again.

Got something to say?
