Review: I decided to buy the Extreme after not alot of thought, I really wish I had known about this site beforehand....
The Rebel came in a boring box, although that's not extremely important. After taking it out of the box and screwing c02 into it, I realized that just about every part on the gun was actually leaking. I quickly took the c02 out and used my n2. Still, everything leaked. The gauge was leaking, so i had to screw that thing in without scratching the paint. Just about every possible screw and bolt was leaking, so I had to go and tighten all of those items up. This was a bit disappointing, because when you screw your air into your gun for the first time you ray to God that everything works. So, I finished up with the bolts and whatnot, put my air in, and everything appeared to be working well. I loaded up my paint, and started to shoot. The balls flew about 5 feet at max before shooting. Being quite a noob at that time, I called nation paintball supply, and an irritable guy comes on the phone and starts talking after being on hold for about an hour. He tells me that the bolt is in wrong, so I fix it. It is RIDICULOUS that a gun comes in assembled incorrectly. Then, after a few games, the ball detents stop working, and so does everything else. I fix it all, play for a few more games, and it all breaks again. I swear to God, if you want a gun to practice fixing, just grap this piece of crap and start playing with it. It doesn't even shoot straight. I did like the barrel, however, and it wasn't horrible for a stock. The settings were nice, along with the trigger.
Conclusion: Although there are some nice parts, all of that is oblivious when all the parts fail to work together properly. However, now that you can buy this thing at 888paintball for 100 smackeroos, its really up to you on whether or not you want to spend the rest of your paintball life fixing a gun that you got on discount.
