Simplistic in design and revealed at an attractive price, the Spyder MR6 is a black paintball gun that boasts many features. Great for both entry-level and those that are a tad more seasoned, this paintball gun will provide you with enough power and speed to successfully hit your targets. Features of this paintball gun include the following:

  • Semi-auto paintball marker that’s mil-slim style
  • Removable 9-round magazine
  • CAR style stock that’s adjustable
  • Dual-loading system that’s patented

Breakdown of the Features

The aforementioned features may seem like jibberish to the newcomers, but are actually very attractive in retrospect. Having a paintball marker as such will allow the user to acquire their target seamlessly, avoiding any messy conflict. In having this, you can secure that shot in milliseconds – all you need is your own reaction time to help you synergize with the shot. Beyond this, the easy-to-remove removable 9-round magazine allows for a quick and seamless unload and reload. Having this means that you don’t have to worry about a tank on the bank like traditional guns, and that you can load, unload, and reload fairly quickly.

The adjustable car style stock provides durability and stability to the paintball gun, allowing for a ton of power behind the product without compromising the integrity of the shot. The dual-loading system helps with this, and aids you in providing a successful capture to the target at hand. In fact, the manufacturer Spyder is so confident about their dual-loading technology that they’ve had it patented for future products and so that their competitors can’t steal away their design. You’re receiving quality when you purchase this paintball gun from Spyder.

The stock barrel that comes equipped with this gun (14″) is one that works perfectly for the design of this product. The aforementioned is due to the dual-loading ability, which many other paintball gun barrels aren’t designed for. If you’re looking for something that’s straightforward with the design, operation and accessories, you’ll find solace in knowing that the Spyder MR6 exists. Easy to operate with the ability to move quick with your hands and on your feet, this gun is fantastic for those who are looking for durability and speed. However, it’s imperative to note that finding a compatible barrel isn’t impossible, but you might be spending a pretty penny to make it work.

Because of the speed and power behind the gun, it’s worth mentioning that the paintballs you must use shouldn’t be the cheap ones, as those can break fairly easily before they even get out of the “waiting pool” of the gun. When your ammunition is too cheap, you’ll find that the paintballs break before even get out of the gun. Avoid this by choosing quality accessories and materials for the MR6.

First Impression of the Spyder MR6 Paintball Gun

Upon first inspection of this paintball gun, it seems like the design is a bit lacking, although once I read the description and specifications of this paintball gun, the design didn’t really matter. Masculine and tactical in appearance, many people enjoy the ergonomically and aesthetically attractive paintball gun that provides dual-loading technology at an extremely affordable price. Excited to try because it’s highly rated, this paintball gun seems as if it would work amazing in the typical paint-filled combat.

The Pros of the Spyder MR6 Paintball Gun

There are an immense number of advantages to this product that go far beyond the patented design. Some of the advantages include the 14″ barrel with muzzle break. The aforementioned provides a speedy and quality shot to the target you’re trying to take down. Along this, the dual-loading system uses the loader and magazine to receive the feed of ammunition. As we’ve mentioned above the ergonomic aspect is attractive and can be seen with the rubber wrap-around grips, providing comfortability along with durability. Lastly, we’ll highlight one more feature. We believe that the versatility and durability of the gun thanks to the design is something you shouldn’t turn a shoulder to.

The Downsides of the Spyder MR6 Paintball Gun

While there aren’t many drawbacks to this item, there may be some. Because of the dual-loading system and how new it is in the world of paintball gun technology, there aren’t many barrel options. However, the stock barrel is just as good as any other barrel because it has to hold up to this particular technology. At the end of the day, it doesn’t really have any adverse effects on the paintball gun whatsoever and isn’t a reason to note purchase. The quality of the current barrel allows the loading system to perform at optimal speeds and quality. Another disadvantage of this product is that there aren’t any crazy accessories included. We’ll discuss more of the contents of this package in the next section.

What’s in the Box?

In the contents of the shipped package, you’ll find the Spyder MR6 paintball gun that comes equipped with an additional 9-round magazine, 14″ barrel with muzzle break, collapsible stock that’s AR style, dual-loading system feeds, and compatibility for First Strike Ammo. While there isn’t many accessories included, the actual gun itself provides everything you need to get started (except for the paintballs themselves, though).

The Final Verdict

At the end of the day, the Spyder MR6 is actually an awesome gun for the price point. Incredible for both entry-level users and those that are more seasoned, your recreational game has never seen more power. Once you get used to this piece, you’ll be shooting high-speed, impactful shots and you’ll acquire your target in no time. Your opponent will have little time to think while you’re already finishing your reload with the quick operation of the Spyder. With a dual-loading system and removable 9-round magazine, you can withstand a ton of time on the “field” and reload quicker than many of your enemies. I would highly recommend this product to those who are interested in something with durability, and for those who are semi-new to the game and wanting to learn with a better paintball gun.
