Review: Note: I have used this gun a few times. my friend owns about 5 of them, and let me borrow his whenever we went.

The Brass Eagle T-Storm is probably not the most ideal gun for the really serious player in either woodsball or speedball. However this gun does have a perfect market. The occasional recball player. For anywhere from $50-80 you can usually buy this gun in a full set, with everything you need to play. So if you really hate rentals, then you can certainly consider this.

As for the gun itself, it roughly reminds me of a Tippmann 98 Custom. Or at least the body style. It's no where near as low maintenance however. I had to clean out the barrel quite a few times after games because of ball chops. Gravity feeds do not play nice with this gun at all. However as I said, a speed feed would cost almost as much as the gun, and I'm not sure it's worth the trouble for every player.

Also it is a SUPER Gas Hog. I was using a 20oz. CO2 tank, and I would easily burn through the tank in about a game. No leaks in the gun either as far as I could tell. Again the upgrade to counter act this is a larger tank. But a $150 tank seems overkill for this gun.

Finally BE does have a bad Rep among serious players. They're running around with $1000 Egos and see the $50 gun as a piece of crap. However remember if you fit into the "occasional player with a want for their own gear" this is perfect. Those players with Egos are very serious about the sport, and of course wouldn't want to play with a weaker gun. So who cares what they think?

Now, I certainly would recommend this gun to anyone who is the occasional recball player looking to stop renting guns. Also given it comes in a full kit, you will have all the gear you need to play at any field.
Conclusion: Great Cheap Gun. It has some issues, but given the price point and the fact they usually come with a full kit certainly should be a selling point for new players.
However if you are at all serious about paintball, it's probably not worth the money. You'll just be changing everything down the road anyway.
