I just bought the MR-1 starter pack from academy and it is a solid little gun, after having trouble with the a5 i bought i returned it and got the MR-1. It feels more solid, shoots straighter(stock) and doesnt jam, like my a5 did. The only thing is it is not near as upgradeable as the A5 is. So I started making custom wooden grips out of black walnut and will have them done within the next few days. Cant wait to get pics up when i'm finished.
