Review: I bought this for my son after he was about to give up paintball due to his miserable experience with his Viewloader Revelation (BE Avenger). What a difference! Picked it up for $79 at my local PB store. He's put about 5k balls thru it with maybe 3 breaks. The trigger pull is easy to modify with a 1/8" spacer and a hot glue gun. Now the pull is about 2 mm. I could tighten it up further but I think it's fine as is.
Conclusion: I'd recommend this product highly. It 's very reliable, and does what it's supposed to do. No worries about gun malfunctions at the field. If anything goes wrong, it comes apart easily and it's pretty much identical to a Spyder internally, so if you're clueless about how to fix it, just about anybody can help you.

32 degrees and kingman come from the same manufacturer National Paintball. So rebels should be good guns. but i got a rebel 02 elec for my birthday in feb of 2003 and a couple days ago it would shoot any bals out of the barel so i have to packaged it up ansd send back. but don't get me wrong it still was an excellent 80 to 90 dollar gun can't go wrong email me @ joeyk803c@hotmail.com if you have any q's

No, it's not the "wrong model". I was referring to the fact that the trigger pull has lots of needless and excessive slop before and after it activates the microswitch. It was about 1/4" before I modded it, now it's about 1/16".

Dude, the gun doesn't matter. It is who is holding the gun that makes a win. So his "Miserable" experience is because he lacked experience. Nub.
