well i just upgraded to an a5 this year and put up my MR1 in the b/s/t forum and got a hit for a trade...

its a spyder pilot acs. im not really up on my speedball guns, but i know its an entry level gun and can fire 20bps.

so, all you speedballers out there- is this a good trade to get into speedball? ill probably only play a couple times this year because theres about five scenarios on my list to attend this summer.

Honestly, it's neither an up or a downgrade. It's still just a Spyder, inside they're all the same. Get an E-Trigger kit for the MR-1 (I think you can...).

Yes, E-triggers for MR1's are easy to get. And for a Spyder, the MR1 is very reliable (I think it's better than my two tippy's) and can be very easily modified for speedball.

If i believe right the rocking trigger is illegal for tournaments. Kingman(spyder) does make a single trip trigger.

Which is a bummer, I love playing with my Rocking Trigger. So much fun.

i would say just get an electro grip for the mr1, pilots seem to have more problems then the MR, and i have to fix them all the time

also, even on full-auto, it can't do 20, maybe 15, if that

Don't make the switch. You'll just take a loss on the sale of the MR1.

If you buy another gun, upgrade. Look into a midrange electro if you want another gun. Otherwise, just get an egrip or play as it is.

I'd suggest adding some cash if you want something that you will really like.

If you REALLY want a new marker, I would suggest selling the mr and saving up some cash to buy,maybe something in the matrix series....Or a nice pump :dry:

If speedball is for you then get an Ion. Pretty damn cheap. Actionvillage has some nice starter kits too.
