Weaknesses: Everything else I can think of.
Review: You can go on and bash me if you want for writing this review, but before you do, take into account that this is MY experience with the gun. It is not based on ANYONE elses experience. If you don't like it, that's fine, I really don't much care. Anyway, on to this review.
Where to Begin?

Strengths:
-If you are REALLY, and I do mean REALLY, strapped for cash, then by all means, go on and get this gun. You can find it for a very cheap price on ebay from any number of dealers.
-Shiny, flashy body. Not so good for woodsball, but for that young player, I am sure it looks wicked neat.

Weaknesses:
-This gun, for all intents and purposes of my using it, is a piece of crap. It was not just ONE gun, but TWO. My brother in law had gotten these for my nephews as they are just getting started. Well, he should have spend the money on a Spyder(as I did anyways when one completely refused to work and we wanted to involve them in our game.) The o-rings had to be replaced constantly on the bolts of both of them, as they tore apart for some reason. A piece of metal broke off somewhere on the inside of one and scored a deep hole in the chamber which allowed air to leak through. This made the balls drop like a coyote off a cliff as soon as they exited the barrel. The braided hoses did not let enough air through and we had to remove them all together and screw the tanks into the vertical ASA.
-Most everything else is minor, that could be overlooked easily on a better marker. The trigger wobble, was almost ungodly. I know my Spyder is no custom job, but it's nothing like the rebel. Very cheaply made frame and gun, all around
Conclusion: My conclusion would be to just spend the extra 20 or so dollars and buy a Spyder or Icon, or Pirhana(sp?). I'm not bashing 32*, as I do like a lot of their products. But in my experience, this one just fell short for me. Sorry to say it, but better luck next time, Guys.
I can't give this gun a 1, because for the price, it was about what I expected. Nice, shiny, flashy gadget. But performance-wise, I just don't see it. So it gets a Hesitant 3.
